Samantha Bee Admitted Attacking Trump Family Was a Group Project

When getting her award, Samantha Bee admitted that her comments were planned and vetted.

Yesterday, I wrote about Samantha Bee calling Ivanka Trump the C-word and suggesting she use incestual lust to affect policy, followed by her apology on Twitter, and compared that to Roseanne Barr’s “crime” and punishment. I wrote,

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.

If there was any doubt it was an organization-wide decision to attack the Trump family in this vile way, she has now proved my point. Samantha Bee admitted to it as she received her Television Academy Honors award.

Breitbart.com reports, “Samantha Bee Defends Calling Ivanka Trump a ‘C**t’ at TV Academy Awards.” I have added emphasis to the relevant statements quoted from Bee:

Embattled TBS late-night host Samantha Bee took the stage to accept a Television Academy Honors award Thursday night and defended calling White House advisor Ivanka Trump a “cunt,” lashed out at the Trump administration “treating people legally seeking asylum as criminals,” and thanked her bosses at Turner Broadcasting for having her back.

“You know, the thing is our show is steeped in passion. Every week I strive to show the world as I see it, unfiltered. Sometimes I should probably have a filter. I accept that. I take it seriously when I get it right and I do take responsibility when I get it wrong,” Bee said, according to Indiewire, to a star-studded audience at the event, held at Neuehouse in Hollywood.

Our piece attracted controversy of the worst kind,” Bee said of the segment about the Trump administration’s immigration and border policies that ended with her calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless cunt” […].

We spent the day wrestling with the repercussions of one bad word, when we all should have spent the day incensed that as a nation we are wrenching children from their parents and treating people legally seeking asylum as criminals,” Bee added.

So “we” spent the day deciding to call Ivanka Trump a C-word on “our piece” on “our show.”

So TV execs are looking for any excuse to fire you if you produce a successful, Leftist, pro-Trump TV show. But they actively help you create vile language and reward you for giving THEIR anti-Trump message.
