Roseanne Barr’s tweet cost her a show while the scripted vile attack on Ivanka Trump by Samantha Bee gets her an award!
The hypocrisy of the media with Samantha Bee is not a slip up. They WANT us to see the double standard—to see that they can get away with anything and nothing touches them whereas much less will get a Trump supporter fired. It is all done intentionally to hurt and discourage us.
The tweeted “apology” of Samantha Bee is even part of it. An apology via Twitter gets her off the hook for a planned and approved assault on Ivanka Trump but an insult on Twitter by Roseanne Barr that had nothing to do with the show got it cancelled.
You crossed the line when you wrote the joke, when you rehearsed it, and when you performed it on air. Like Ivanka or hate her, that was always a mistake. If your show was conservative you and you said that about Michelle Obama you'd be out of a job. https://t.co/X7Ezf6Dye9

Newsbusters reports, “‘Feckless C**t’: Bee Tells Ivanka to Seduce Her Dad for Immigration Reform.”
Wednesday’s Full Frontal on TBS was off the rails straight from the get-go as host Samantha Bee railed against the Trump administration for enforced tough immigration policies. After smearing the President, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and First Lady Melania Trump, Bee turned her twisted sights on Ivanka Trump and begged her to seduce her father to get him to change his policies. On top of that, she described the President’s daughter as a “feckless c**t.” […]
Bee spent her entire A-block angrily ranting about how tough the Trump administration was on people illegally crossing the border […] She then showed a picture of Ivanka holding one of her children and bitterly claimed it was “the second most oblivious tweet we’ve seen this week.”
“You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child,” Bee spat as her rage was about to explode. “[B]ut let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices, you feckless c**t. He listens to you!”
A childhood picture of Ivanka sitting on her father’s lap flashed on the screen as Bee coached her on how to seduce her own father.
So what does Samantha Bee get for this and more? She gets an award and gets a “no media zone” to protect her from any questions regarding her decadent and degradation (of herself—her words don’t actually touch Ivanka Trump).
Wednesday, on her “Full Frontal” TBS show, vulgar Samantha Bee called President Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, a “c**t.” On Thursday, The Television Academy will honor Bee with an award.
UPDATE: The Television Academy has disinvited media from the awards event. Media were informed of the ban late Thursday evening, Deadline reports:
“In the wake of the Samantha Bee controversy whereby she called Ivanka Trump a ‘feckless c**t‘, the Television Academy has put the kibosh on any press attending tonight’s 11th annual Television Academy Honors ceremony, which is lauding her TBS series Full Frontal.
“While members of the press is permitted to cover the red carpet, they will not have access to the actual cocktail reception/ceremony, which is taking place at the NeueHouse Hollywood.”
The White House condemned Bee’s vulgar attack on Trump’s daughter – and the liberal media’s indifference to it – and called on TBS to take action, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told The Wrap:
“The language used by Samantha Bee last night is vile and vicious. The collective silence by the left and its media allies is appalling.”
“Her disgusting comments and show are not fit for broadcast, and executives at Time Warner and TBS must demonstrate that such explicit profanity about female members of this administration will not be condoned on its network.”
Of course, all of this is good news for Donald Trump in 2018 and 2020!
