Earlier today I blogged about the alleged comedian, samantha bee, calling President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, a “feckless cunt”….among other similarly disgusting invective.
Well, bee has now apologized. Via twitter, she says:
“I would like to sincerely apologize to Ivanka Trump and to my viewers for using an expletive on my show to describe her last night. It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.”
That’s nice. Very sincere, I’m sure. I guess we’re supposed to infer from this that she also apologizes for the tidal wave of other just-as-sickening filth she has put out over the course of her show. She just accidentally forgot to mention them, you see.
Before continuing, I would like to point out that Roseanne Barr apologized for tweeting her ugly racial reference to Valerie Jarrett too. But, within hours, her new show was canceled, most or all syndicated reruns of her original show were canceled and her agent dumped her. In less than one day she became a non-person.
But now, a day later, while the Roseanne Barr incident is lead-story news, samantha bee – obviously of the impression she is immune to the same set of rules as Roseanne Barr – makes this beyond-sickening comment. And not on twitter, but on TV.
So bee has been dumped and made a non-person too, just like Roseanne Barr. Right?
Wrong. Never forget that samantha bee is firmly within the left wing’s protective dome.
Instead of firing her, Turner Broadcasting System (TBS), which airs her show, issued the following statement:
“Samantha Bee has taken the right action in apologizing for the vile and inappropriate language she used about Ivanka Trump last night. Those words should not have been aired. It was our mistake too, and we regret it”.
Waiting for more?
If so, you’ll have a long wait. Because there isn’t any more. That’s it. Apology accepted. Everything back to normal. No cancellation, no price to pay. The end.
As I said in the earlier blog: anyone who thinks media outrage over offensive comments is not the product of a political double standard, is either an ignoramus or an idiot.
