One week after TBS host Samantha Bee unleashed an obscene attack on Ivanka Trump, most of the advertisers seem to have disappeared from her Full Frontal show. Bee on Wednesday night returned to blame the media for playing up her vulgar comments, but companies like Taco Bell, Jim Beam, Geico and others did not.
TBS Full Frontal host and comedian Samantha Bee has been feeling the heat since her crass May 30 declaration that Ivanka Trump was a “feckless c**t” who should seduce her father to change immigration policy. But during what started out on Wednesday night sounding like a sincere apology, Bee appeared to shift the blame for the firestorm onto the media. And suggested they preferred to focus on her insult instead of the message she was trying to convey about immigration.
We've come a long way from harmless playground jibes like “your mother wears combat boots,” to those of today from the likes of Samantha Bee and other leftist “entertainers” who say things about President Trump and his family that are so vulgar they can't be printed in a newspaper or quoted on television.
During a CNN panel debate Sunday on whether or not Samantha Bee deserved to be compared to Roseanne Barr, host Brian Stelter and his liberal guests somehow turned the conversation back to blame Trump for the female comedians’ offensive comments.
Samantha Bee called First Daughter Ivanka Trump a word that can’t be spelled out here. What’s easier to say? The refrain conservatives have been uttering since Nov. 9, 2016. “That’s how you get Trump.”
The catastrophic fallout from Samantha Bee’s “C” word incident received surprisingly fair and reasonable coverage yesterday from CNN’s New Day. Sadly, that lasted just twenty-four hours, when this morning on New Day, hosts Alisyn Camerota and John Berman had on comedians Maysoon Zayid and Alise Morales to discuss Bee’s vile comments.
After airing a full report on Friday’s Good Morning America about the controversy swirling around left-wing Full Frontal host Samantha Bee over her vile attack on First Daughter Ivanka Trump, ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos and 10Ten Media’s Larry Hackett reacted to the story by blaming President Trump for creating an environment of incivility and wondering if Bee was already “out of the woods.”
On Thursday's CNN Tonight, during a discussion of the controversy over TBS host Samantha Bee calling Ivanka Trump a "feckless c***," and Roseanne Barr comparing former Barack Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to an ape, CNN.com contributor Dean Obeidallah came to the liberal Bee's defense, lauding her as "an important voice." And, in response to conservative talk radio host Stacy Washington complaining about the double standard of liberal comedians Bill Maher and Joy Behar being tolerated when they attack conservatives, host Don Lemon defended Behar for recently painting Christians as mentally ill.
RESTON, VA — Media Research Center President Brent Bozell issued the following statement on Friday in response to the Television Academy banning press from attending the event honoring TBS Full Frontal host Samantha Bee. The TV Academy, the same group behind the Emmy Awards, honored Bee with the award just one day after she referred to Ivanka Trump as a “feckless c**t.”
CBS This Morning on Friday floated the idea that the disgustingly vulgar attack by Samantha Bee against Ivanka Trump might be a case of “whataboutism.” Reporter Vladimir Duthiers waded into the tortured waters of comparing the awfulness of Bee’s comments vs. Roseanne Barr’s vile remarks: “Others say Bee was talking about Trump's character. Roseanne Barr was talking about Valerie Jarrett’s race. And that’s different.”
To begin Thursday’s edition of HLN’s Unfiltered, host S.E. Cupp walked her viewers through how the liberal media’s double standard for punishing vile comments works. Between Roseanne Barr, Keith Olbermann, Joy Reid, and now Samantha Bee, there were a plethora of examples for her to choose from. But her most stern and forceful condemnation was reserved for ESPN and their parent company Disney for hiring Olbermann despite his membership in what she called the “misogynists’ club.”
Samantha Bee was forced to apologize for her disgusting attack on Ivanka Trump today, but this isn’t the first time she’s had to apologize for an offensive or stupid remark. There was that time, in 2017, when she attacked a CPAC attendee for having “Nazi hair.” Bee later apologized to the attendee, Kyle Coddington, because it turned out he had stage 4 brain cancer. Of course there are many, many other segments and statements that Bee could apologize for, but hasn’t. The following are just some of the most obnoxious attacks from Bee on her TBS show, as culled from the MRC archives
