It looks like America didn’t love Sarah Silverman back (or at least the conservative part of the country that voted for Donald Trump) as Hulu has canceled the comedian’s I Love You America with Sarah Silverman.
Maybe if Silverman hadn’t used the show to call the country “dogsh*t,” mock Jesus and claim Trump had gone “full Hitler” her viewership would’ve been higher in the red states she claimed to be reaching out to.
In March 2017, when Hulu announced they were picking up the show from the Funny or Die website they claimed Silverman was “looking to connect with people who may not agree with her personal opinions...while it’s great to connect with like-minded people, Silverman feels it’s crucial, now more than ever, to connect with the un-like-minded.”
The following is just a sample of segments from Silverman’s show that, at least half of America, did not love:
Trump Goes Full Hitler
“Well he did it. We finally have video of Trump saying the ‘n’ word....Alright not the ‘n’ word but an ‘n’ word. He went full Hitler and admitted he’s a nationalist. We can stop calling it a dog whistle. This is now a full-blown ‘Come here buddy. Come here. Who’s a racist boy? Yes you are.’ And I guess the silver lining is that Trump finally told the truth. I mean his bigotry is no longer masked by his rhetoric.”

Trump Building “Insanity Plea” For Himself
Sarah Silverman: “Trigger warning on this video for anybody out there who is human.”
Donald Trump: “How did you get home? ‘I don’t remember.’ Where is the place? ‘I don’t remember.’ How many years ago was it? ‘I don’t know, I don’t know.’ Upstairs, downstairs, where was it? ‘I don’t know. But I had one beer. That’s the only thing I remember.’”
Silverman: “Ha, ha, ha, ha. Fuck you! You know what? He’s not even worth it. He is a void. He is unwell. He’s building an incredible case for an insanity plea. So let me direct this to the one group of people who are actually going to make this decision. Senators please believe me when I say this is no longer a job interview. This is a line in the sand and you have to pick a side. And the side is no longer Republican or Democrat. Your vote is a statement and that statement is either ‘hell no this is not okay, this is not who we are,’ or it’s telling every woman, every girl, every boy, every person that what happens to women’s bodies does not matter.”

Blaming Trump for Crazy Man
“His [Donald Trump] constant drumbeat of a loaded language that creates convenient enemies. ‘Lock her up! Enemy of the people’ These are his mantras. We cannot be surprised to wake up to bombs at the doors of his favorite targets.”

America Is Dogsh*t
“The midterms are just three weeks away, so let’s talk about how some Republican politicians are trying to win – by cheating. I’m talking about voter suppression, things like closing polling places, purging names from voter rolls and requiring photo ID – which by the way you do not need to purchase say – a gun. The flashpoint for voter suppression is this year’s gubernatorial election in Georgia where Democrat Stacy Abrams is running to become the first black female governor in American history. In American history? That’s not just Georgia? Oh my God! This country is dogsh*t.”

Kavanaugh’s Deal with the Devil
“[The Trump administration] is going to get to confirm Kavanaugh and that will give every anti-choice Republican a giant boner. This is a position for life, y’all. They want to push it through, and if it goes through, it’s going to affect every vulnerable person in America negatively until the day he dies, until the Devil comes to collect his soul.”
— Silverman on September 6, 2018.
MRC Culture writer Lindsay Kornick wrote up the more offensive things in this November 1, 2018 episode.
“Jesus” makes comments on things like:
His Testicles: “Instead of being filled with semen, they’re filled with clouds... [ejaculation] is actually quite painful."
Illegal Immigration: “We live in a nation where they’ll let a Middle Eastern guy into their hearts [Jesus] but not into the country.”
Cursing: "I curse all the time. Fuck fuck fuck. Damn. Piss. Hell. Bastard. Shit."
Sexuality: “I’m essentially pansexual. I love everyone and everything. In fact I had mind-blowing sex with an oak tree the other day... Everyone is my type, I'm literally attracted to everyone...I'm getting hard just picturing [the dancing guy from the Six Flags commercials.]”
Voting: "I don't want to pick sides, but let's just say, I brew my own kombucha.
