Hulu’s I Love You America with Sarah Silverman has been just one insult after another for conservative viewers. With the crass humor and not-so-subtle slams against President Trump, it’s hard to believe this was supposed to be a program about connecting people. In fact, this latest show might encourage more animosity between political sides.
After the fifth episode of Hulu’s I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman, I now have to accept that the humor must either be liberally biased or vulgar. Often both. She reached new heights of vulgarity last week (outside of gratuitous nudity, of course) and this week she doubled down on the anti-Trump rhetoric in “honor” of the one-year anniversary of the election.
Here I thought Hulu’s I Love You, America with Sarah Silverman was starting to wind down after its shocking premiere and dismal follow-up episodes. This recent week proves to me that I should never expect anything less than the awkward at best, outright dirty at worst “humor” that comes from Sarah Silverman.
Sarah Silverman’s I Love You, America series on Hulu sounds like one of the biggest oxymorons available for streaming right now. What really hypes up the irony is the idea of Sarah Silverman of all people trying to “bridge the divide” between people across the country. So does the show succeed? Well, it honestly depends how tolerant you are.
Sarah Silverman is trying to reinvent herself as nonpartisan and a great bridge builder. However, she is incapable of doing anything other than spewing vulgar trash.
No matter how wrong something sounds, if Hollywood decides to say it, it becomes celebrated.
Hollywood has priorities: hate on Trump, stay politically relevant, and look good. If the most liberal of them are freaking out about a GOP bill, something good must be happening.
So it should come as no surprise that while the GOP tries to push Obamacare Repeal, Tinseltown’s brightest come to the rescue with some interesting tweets to protest. Jim Carrey shared a picture of a hurricane swirling around Republican Congressmen, with the caption, “While another storm heads r way, craven republican sock puppets in service of shameless greed, try AGAIN 2 ravage healthcare. #sickening.”
Kicking someone when they are down is never a good thing. It’s even less tasteful when wealthy, entitled Hollywood uses national tragedies to preach to the public about climate change. But while Hurricane Irma threatened Florida over the weekend, many celebrities did just that.
The Hollywood Reporter offered news from the Television Critics Association summer press tour that leftist comic Sarah Silverman has been granted a ten-part weekly variety series on Hulu titled I Love You, America. In an effort to confound expectations that this is going to be another unfunny rantfest against Trump and the Republicans – like Samantha Bee’s TBS show – Silverman claimed it would be “aggressively dumb” and not very political. Don't buy it.
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards was a guest on Netflix’s Chelsea in the episode titled “Changing the Climate” which aired on June 1, 2017. Following liberal activist comedienne Sarah Silverman - who talked of raising money for women to get transportation to appointments at Planned Parenthood facilities in Texas - both women exaggerated their arguments in support of government funding for the abortion provider.
Sarah Silverman has a new Netflix comedy special to promote, A Speck of Dust. The hour-long affair features boilerplate Silverman shtick – potty humor delivered in her deadpan style, and wildly divisive musings on abortion and other hot-button issues. The Daily Beast was fed the line, apparently, that Silverman wants to bring red and blue states together. Which leaves us with this Kumbaya headline: “Sarah Silverman Might Just Save Us All”. The comic’s own family members couldn’t fawn this hard.
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.
