Of all the television shows for the husband of Sarah Palin to make an appearance on, Todd Palin strangely chose TBS’s extremely liberal comedy The Detour. Produced by leftist commentator Samantha Bee and husband Jason Jones, the show was originally based on the real-life family road trips of Bee, Jones and their children, but has now devolved into vile material that Palin should have thought twice about associating himself with.
Just when you thought Hollywood couldn’t sink any lower in their depravity and twisted attempts at humor, especially when it comes to child actors, along comes Tuesday’s episode of TBS’s The Detour, “The Stop.” Which were my thoughts exactly as I watched. “Please, for the literal love of God, make it stop.”
The entertainment world has readied the battlefield for the resistance with scripted and unscripted shows.
TBS’s Full Frontal host Samantha Bee teased Tuesday the theme of her show for 2018: apologizing for America. The anti-Trump comedian revealed on her Youtube channel that on January 24, her show would premiere what she’s calling “The Apology Race.”
In Wednesday's New York Times, three reporters reflected on "how Washington insiders are viewing pop culture" in 2017. The most interesting take was that the Saturday Night Live "Alec Baldwin bits" on Trump this year haven't "drawn a ton of blood" in Washington. Their mockery of female Trump aides also failed to score with insiders, they declared.
Liberals in the media will say anything to justify why they turned a blind eye to sexual predators in their midst. Take TBS comedian Samantha Bee, who tried to pretend on her show, Full Frontal, last night, that these men’s “misogyny” was well evidenced by their bias against Hillary Clinton.
The NewsBusters staff was passing around an old YouTube video from Samantha Bee that she taped with Charlie Rose in his Bloomberg studios last year. It was titled "What Are You Hiding, Charlie Rose?" She asked to turn up the lights in the typically black backdrop, and was frightened to discover a crowd of "Charlie Rose clones." One clone even paws her on the shoulder: "Hi, I'm Charlie Rose." The original Rose then says "He likes you!"
Award shows have now become recruiting grounds for liberals. At the Glamour Women of the Year Awards, on November 13, people like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-California) and Samantha Bee got to tell the “hundreds of high school girls” in the audience just how they felt about Trump and his administration. Waters tried to tell the audience to “join progressive organizations” and ended her awards acceptance speech with an attempt to start an “Impeach him” chant.
Leave it to Samantha Bee to take climate hyperbole and turn it into a haunted, climate, hell house. Full Frontal with Samantha Bee spent the entire episode on Oct. 25, warning that climate change was “destroying the world,” that President Donald Trump was “attacking us in every way imaginable,” and she attempted to scare the “denial” out of people who disagree. Her method? A climate-themed haunted house.
A quick check of the Newsbusters archives reveals that Samantha Bee is one of the more notorious Trump haters in the media. Therefore it was amusing to watch the TBS host of Full Frontal go into a state of shock on her August 2 show in a segment where she traveled to Kurdistan in northern Iraq and discovered that (GASP!) the Kurds love President Donald Trump.
You have the garden variety retractions, of course. The anonymously sourced tales disproven over time. The false narratives that always seem to tilt a certain way.And sometimes an outlet simply lets a source share false statements without even attempting to correct them. Case in point: This Vanity Fair profile of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee executive producer Jo Miller. The silliness starts with the headline: "Don't Call Full Frontal With Samantha Bee Liberal."
TBS's Samantha Bee unleashed against her longstanding nemesis, the Catholic Church, during a segment on Wednesday's Full Frontal. Bee zeroed on the Church's opposition to a proposed "child victims act," and contended that "if you're an institution that has hurt so many children that paying out civil settlements would make you go bankrupt, maybe you should?" The left-wing "comedian" added, "Anyway, it's fine. It won't. You're sitting on more treasure than Smaug the Dragon [a character in "The Hobbit"], so pay up."
