Birds of a feather…or something like that, right?
Or, more likely is this just another knee-jerk, hyperbolic reaction from someone based on arbitrarily endorsed political lines? Heck, it could be either to be honest.
Samantha Bee, a comedienne who got her start on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, has moved onto hosting her own political broadcast entitled “Full Frontal” over on TBS. Much like her stint under Stewart’s progressive wing, Bee’s new program leans almost comically far to the left, attacking any inkling of American patriotism that their interns can sniff out on Google. Now Full Frontal has been at the forefront of the decorum discussion as it pertains to the democratic party after she referred to Ivanka Trump using the C Word.
The Hard C word.
This bit of reckless banter comes amid an across-the-board heightening of vitriolic viciousness in our politicly narrative, and follows the inexcusable comments by Roseanne Barr last week on Twitter. Sam Bee, unlike Roseanne, looks to be in no danger of losing her jobs thanks to the trickle down effects of liberal advertisers acting as the shadow government controlling the court of public opinion.
Even former boss Jon Stewart is now coming to Samantha Bee’s aid.
“I’m going to tell you something about Sam Bee, because I’ve known her for a very long time. You could not find a kinder, smarter, more lovely individual than Samantha Bee. Trust me, if she called someone a [expletive]…” Steward said, according to the Daily Beast, with a silence allowing the audience to finish his thought.
“Don’t get caught in a trap of thinking you can live up to a code of integrity that will be enough for the propagandist right. There isn’t,” Stewart warned the audience earlier in the night. “And so, create your own moral code to live by, but don’t be fooled into trying to make concessions that you think will mollify them.”
On Thursday, Bee took the stage to accept a Television Academy Honors award and defended calling Ivanka Trump a [expletive] and lashed out at the Trump administration.
President Trump slammed Bee and demanded to know why the TBS late-night host had not been fired for her “horrible language” and “low ratings.”
You would maybe expect a little more civility and class from Stewart, whose crowning achievement as a liberal shill was his “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear”.
Instead, Stewart has strayed from his former wishes to bring a bit of decorum back top the discussion in D.C., and would rather prop up his basically cable propagandist protege.
