White House Wants Samantha Bee's Show Cancelled

This is ridiculous but to be expected from trump and the idiots in the White House https://politicalwire.com/2018/05/31/white-house-wants-samantha-bees-show-cancelled/

Samantha Bee told the Daily Beast that she “deeply regrets” calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless cunt” on her show.

Meanwhile, Deadline reports that the White House called on TBS to cancel the show.

Said press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders: “The language used by Samantha Bee last night is vile and vicious. The collective silence by the left and its media allies is appalling. Her disgusting comments and show are not fit for broadcast, and executives at Time Warner and TBS must demonstrate that such explicit profanity about female members of this administration will not be condoned on its network.”

I will be irked at TBS if they give into trump and SHS

How can TBS keep her when everyone said ABC did the right thing re Barr?

56. She harshly criticized a member of the current administration

for policies currently being carried out by this administration. She used harsh language laced with some profanities, which is not unusual in the area of political satire/criticism, and apparently not unusual on her show.

Roseanne tweeted a racist attack on a member of the former administration, based not on policy disagreement, but on her race and place of birth.

You really don't understand the difference?

Trump, Wolff writes in Fire and Fury, was up against the Justice Department but thought he was “up against Sally Yates, who was, he steamed, such a c---t.”

https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-worst-thing-donald-trump-says-in-michael-wolffs-book



Not satisfied with that show of strength douchebaggery, Trump called Lin’s editor, Craig Stock, where he continued his rant; referring to Lin as a “cunt”. But when Stock asked Trump what in particular he found so offensive about the story, Trump replied: “No one reads the story. I read the headline and didn’t like it.”

After the daily shit and assault from trump and his administration. I don't have enough to level that kind of angry invective toward Ivanka. Especially over a saccharine picture tweet. She doesn't really do anything. She has no role as a policy maker, despite her high visibility.

Samantha stepped in it, unnecessarily. I ain't mad at her. But I am kind of annoyed at her right now.

This is fucking tyranny. Orange Anus is blobbing around, pardoning the most despicable pieces of shit he can find today (can he exhume the Third Reich?), so of course they want to cancel free speech.

Ivanka is a fucking simple-minded blow-up doll who is making money off the government (US!!!) while she ostensibly works for it. And the post of her holding her "adorable baby" while her filthy father is wrenching children from their parents is reason for them all to burn in hell.

But be warned, Samantha Bee's genital reference should not be enough to "clutch the pearls." This is the end game, folks, and no time to get offended by ourselves, for Chrissakes....

-- The NFL white owners already bent over for the Cheeto. And he's expressed hatred on many sides...on many sides.
-- White supremacists are eagerly marching for him.
-- Immigrants live in constant terror, waiting for the door to be broken down and their children to be ripped from their arms.

So of course, that Huckabee hound dog drags her ass out today to continue spewing out the robotic solipsisms and gets all (PHONY) choked up about the kid reporter about the school shooting. Meanwhile, the cockholster Dumpster headed to Texas, thinking it would be some fun to go see the shooting victims today.

Fuck this worthless piece of shit sociopath and the morons who inflicted him upon us!

If TBS cancels Samantha for political correctness instead of fighting back, this will be another danger zone. Let's not get so touchy about the provocative language on our side. All bets are off. If Roseanne wants to talk about successful black women with big swinging ape balls, and Orange Anus approves, then we can say what we feel about that ridiculously plastic, phony bitch daughter of his.

There, I said it, and I don't give a fiddler's fuck.
