President Trump on Friday called for the TBS network to fire host Samantha Bee for a profane rant on her late-night comedy show.
That “double standard” Trump spoke of appears to be a reference to conservative comedienne Roseanne Barr who said something equally offensive on Twitter this week and was immediately fired by ABC.
Bee, host of a show called “Full Frontal,” called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c***” during Wednesday night’s broadcast.
“You know, 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 c***,” Bee said after showing a photo of Ivanka and her toddler son, Theodore.
Liberals quickly came to Bee’s defense, and while she was forced to apologize, TBS does not appear to be moving toward firing her — even though some advertisers have pulled out.
In fact, Bee’s show was honored Thursday night by the Television Academy as one of the most “meaningful and relevant” on the air. Journalists were barred from covering the event in person.
