President Trump, First Lady Melania Blast Hollywood's 'Double Standard' Following Samantha Bee's Vulgar, Sexist Attack on Ivanka

Benjamin Gill : Jun 1, 2018 : CBN News

"The double standard is truly astounding. Time and again the Trump family and members of this Administration are subjected to false reporting, hateful rhetoric and outrageous lies all in the name of freedom of speech or comedy, yet the mainstream media stays silent." -Statement by First Lady Melania Trump

Bee hosts the TBS show called "Full Frontal," and when she attacked Trump's daughter on her show she used one of the most offensive slurs possible against women.

In addition to using a vulgarity, Bee went on with more obscene comments telling Ivanka to try to seduce her father into fixing immigration.

TBS says Bee's apology is good enough, but President Trump and others are calling out Hollywood for a big double standard.

Bee has not received any punishment, unlike Roseanne Barr whose show was cancelled after she used an offensive racial slur.

Some are asking why Bee should be allowed to remain on the air in the #MeToo era when sexist and abusive behavior toward women is finally being met with appropriate repercussions.

Early Friday morning, President Trump called for action, saying Bee should be fired.

"Why aren't they firing no talent Samantha Bee for the horrible language used on her low ratings show? A total double standard," Trump tweeted.

But conservative commentator Ben Sharpiro writes in the Daily Wire that the decision is now in the hands of Samantha Bee's fans.

He says, "Before we hear about how all Trump supporters are secret racists who cheered Roseanne Barr's comments, let's hear a little bit about what Samantha Bee supporters think of her comments. Let's see whether they keep watching, or whether they provide her with consequences."
