On Thursday, as blowback erupted after supposed comedienne Samantha Bee’s hateful and vulgar attack on Ivanka Trump, calling her a “feckless c***,” actress Sally Field, 70, tweeted her support of Bee in another display of class and dignity:
In December 2016, after Donald Trump won the presidency, Field stated, “If you look at his past, if you look at his history, there is no evidence that he can do one single thing that he says he’s going to do. He has shown to be everything that he accuses and has accused Hillary Clinton of being. It is now evident he is all of those things, every single thing that he accused her of.”
Field, a gifted actress who was initially viewed as a lightweight when she soared to television stardom in “The Flying Nun,” later proved her mettle as she won two Academy Awards, one for “Norma Rae” and another for “Places in the Heart.” She was widely mocked after her acceptance speech for the latter, in which she burbled, “I can’t deny the fact that you like me! Right now, you like me!”
Right now, not so much.
