Apparently, Sarah Silverman is ready to reach across the aisle.
Despite her wildly partisan opinions, the lefty comedienne plans to “connect with un-like-minded people” in a new weekly talk show, Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva reported. Called I Love You, America, the Hulu show will be a forum for Silverman’s political commentary on the events of the week.
“The new program is designed to be balanced,” Andreeva explained, “with her looking to connect with people who may not agree with her personal opinions through honesty, humor, genuine interest in others, and not taking herself too seriously.”
We’ll see how that works out.
A vocal critic of all things conservative, Silverman has spewed vitriol and vulgarity toward many ideological opponents. In a much-discussed February tweet, she called for the military overthrow of ‘Mad King’ Trump. And her hyper-sexual “comedy” has included rape jokes and degraded Christians.
But Andreeva says the new series “promises to be funny.” Hmm.
