UPDATE: Samantha has apologized.
As you all know, ABC cancelled Roseanne after the star tweeted about Valerie Jarett: “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.”
I wonder if TBS will cancel Samantha Bee’s Full Frontal because last night she called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c*nt.”
On Monday, I blogged about how the media and former officials during President Barack Obama’s administration used pictures from 2014 and 2016 to attack President Donald Trump on immigration.
Apparently, there are some who are still trying to stretch it against Trump, including Bee. From Mediaite (emphasis mine):
Bee noted that the policy of separating migrant children from their parents is not new, as it happened during the Obama administration, but joked, “neither is my alcoholism, but it’s getting a lot worse under Trump.”
Bee eventually took aim at Ivanka Trump, who faced criticism from liberals after posting a photo of her son this weekend on Twitter amidst reports that HHS had lost track of nearly 1,500 migrant children placed with families.
“Ivanka Trump, who works at the White House, chose to post the second most oblivious tweet we’ve seen this week,” Bee said. “Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child, but let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices you feckless cunt!”
“He listens to you,” she added. “Put on something tight and low-cut and tell your father to fucking stop it. Tell him it was an Obama thing and see how it goes, okay?”
Not only did Bee use one of the most horrid slurs to call a female, but she also encouraged Ivanka to dress like a slut and seduce her own father.
Will Hollywood and the media show off its double standards in this case? President of ABC Channing Dungey described Rosanne’s tweet about Jarrett as “abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values.” Robert Iger, the chairman of Disney (which owns ABC), said canceling the show “was the right thing.” He even called Jarrett to apologize and set things straight.
Will TBS do the same thing? Or is some hateful speech okay? We reached out to TBS and asked for a statement or comment: “We are writing about the comment by Samantha Bee on her TBS show calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless c*nt”. Does TBS have a statement on that? Is TBS cancelling the show the way ABC cancelled Roseanne? Will the CEO of TBS be calling Ms. Trump to apologize?”
First Lady Melania Trump’s officer provided a comment to The Daily Caller:
The official spokesperson for the First Lady, Stephanie Grisham, gave the Daily Caller an exclusive statement on the issue on behalf of Melania Trump. Grisham said “The double standard is truly astounding,” concerning the vulgar comments. “Time and again the Trump family and members of this Administration are subjected to false reporting, hateful rhetoric and outrageous lies all in the name of freedom of speech or comedy, yet the main stream media stays silent.”
People on social media have noted the double standard:
This is disgusting. How is this acceptable? And how are we expected to take any of these publications seriously if they gleefully repost something like this at the same time they (rightfully) condemn @therealroseanne? You know the saying Love is Love? Well Hate is Hate. https://t.co/YTjmZQ4zMV

And if you called Samantha Bee a “Feckless Cunt” on any social media platform, their “trust and safety” council would have you purged like a Trotsky statue. https://t.co/4mQBgfirPn

I’m sure @TBSNetwork promptly canceled Samantha Bee’s show after her vulgar remark about Ivanka Trump because those are the rules now right @therealroseanne? Or is there some view Samantha holds that makes her different? Just wondering where the consistency is guys… https://t.co/BWpxSqv3Mq

Hi Brian. Samantha Bee just called Ivanka Trump a feckless cunt on broadcast television. Will you be asking TBS for a statement?

Perez Hilton, who is a liberal, spoke out against it:
This is unnecessarily harsh! I don’t like Ivanka Trump and her actions and inactions, but calling her a C U Next Tuesday is unwarranted and too much! https://t.co/3uw8iEnn5Q

We emailed TBS seeking comment, but as of this writing have not heard back:
“We are writing about the comment by Samantha Bee on her TBS show calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless c*nt”. Does TBS have a statement on that? Is TBS cancelling the show the way ABC cancelled Roseanne? Will the CEO of TBS be calling Ms. Trump to apologize?”
Bee has apologized:
I would like to sincerely apologize to Ivanka Trump and to my viewers for using an expletive on my show to describe her last night. It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.
