WH: Trump Ripping Media Hypocrisy, Not Defending Barr

President Donald Trump is not defending Roseanne Barr's racist tweet that got her rebooted television show canceled by ABC, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday, "he's simply pointing out the bias" in the media against him and his administration.

"The president is pointing to the hypocrisy in the media saying that the most horrible things about this president and nobody addresses it," Sanders told reporters at the daily briefing.

In a Wednesday tweet, Trump noted that Robert Iger, CEO of Walt Disney Co., which owns ABC, called Valerie Jarrett to say the network would not condone Barr's bigoted tweet Tuesday about the former top Obama aide.
