President Donald Trump has broken his silence on the cancellation of "Roseanne".

"Roseanne's Twitter assertion is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we now have determined to cancel her present", president of ABC Leisure Channing Dungey introduced in a press release Tuesday. She wrote that racist tweet that forced ABC to ax the show. "'Ambien brings out the racist in all of us?'"

The president's message to Iger on Wednesday read: "Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that "ABC does not tolerate comments like those" made by Roseanne Barr".

Emma Kenney is no longer a star on Roseanne, but the teen actress seems to have fond memories of her brief time on the ABC reboot.

"The president's pointing to the hypocrisy in the media saying the most disgusting things about this president, and nobody addresses it", press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.

"The president pointed to the hypocrisy in the media saying the most terrible things about this president and nobody addresses it", said Mrs Sanders. She said she would quit Twitter as well.

Iger past year quit a Trump advisory council because of the president's decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord. She later sent dozens of tweets in which she apologized and offered up a number of reasons for her offensive comment. "Michelle Obama was reportedly enraged and insisted an apology was inadequate".
