The NY Times’ Maggie Haberman just brutally mocked Trump over his whiny Roseanne tweet

This morning, the President took to Twitter to complain about ABC’s decision to fire Roseanne Barr and cancel her show over a series of racist tweets about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.

But of course, Donald Trump couldn’t even be bothered to address the racism or even make an argument about “free speech” – he was too busy seething over the slights that had been done to him by ABC and wondering why anyone hadn’t gotten fired over THOSE statements.

It’s not even clear what “horrible statements” made on ABC he’s referring to; perhaps he’s referring to the ribbing he often receives from late-night host Jimmy Kimmel or the mere existence of sitcom Blackish, which the president has decried as “racist” in the past because it stars a black family and deals with black issues.

Either way, it’s an absolutely ridiculous and enormously selfish thing to Tweet out to the nation that serves no purpose but to vent an unhinged old narcissist’s petty grievances against a television network.

His tweet was met with derision in the media, even among some of the nation’s most senior reporters. Maggie Haberman has become the New York Times’ star Trump correspondent since the election, her byline on every major breaking news story and even occasionally receiving phone calls from Trump himself when he feels like planting a story.

She has also been the subject of multiple disparaging Twitter attacks from the President when he doesn’t like her reporting, which might be why she took to Twitter to publicly mock Trump’s latest tweet:

ME! ME! ME! is the mantra that aptly describes Donald Trump’s entire life. His self-obsession and irrepressible insecurities dictate his every move and command him to turn every possible event into a celebration of himself – and this latest feud is no different.

But it’s a rare sight to see a mainstream reporter with the highly coveted access to the president be so explicit with their scorn for the president’s latest outburst – a sure sign that like the majority of the nation, the media’s patience for Trump’s spoiled manchild act is running thin indeed.
