It’s no secret that the election of Donald Trump as President has caused certain public figures on the left to lose all semblance of self-control and common human decency, but most of the time they are able to restrain themselves from issuing vile insults in a public forum if for no other reason than to keep their jobs.
Last night Samantha Bee, who has a comedy show on the station TBS, not only begged Ivanka Trump to try and seduce her father into changing his immigration practices, but called her a “feckless c–t” on her show.
“You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child,” Samantha Bee said on her TBS comedy show, referring to a photo that Trump’s daughter posted on Instagram. “But let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices you feckless c**t!”
The photo that Samantha Bee is referencing is a picture of Ivanka and her child that she tweeted out several days ago.

Nothing enrages a leftist more than seeing a happy, cohesive family enjoying their love for one another publicly, as typically those on the left have deep-seeded unhappiness, self-loathing or a low self image of themselves that manifests itself into a pure hatred of those who are happy and comfortable in their own skin.
After being widely condemned for her hateful remarks towards Ivanka, Samantha Bee issued a “sincere” apology via Twitter.
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.

It’s striking that so many on the left have issued apologies for their vile behaviors towards conservatives or women, yet these apologies only occur if they receive a substantial backlash for their awful remarks and show no real genuine remorse.
As of right now, Samantha Bee has not had her show canceled by TBS nor suffered any serious consequences besides a single advertiser dropping her show, AutoTrader.
Meanwhile, Roseanne Barr’s career has been decimated after she sent out a malicious tweet earlier this week attacking former Obama administration official Valeria Jarrett. Roseanne’s new sitcom on ABC had tremendous ratings and was largely considered a conservative pro-Trump television show, reaching over 25 million viewers with her first episode alone.
Roseanne found herself in a similar situation as Samantha Bee after her offensive tweet, facing a massive backlash from every direction. However, Roseanne also issued a sincere apology, just as Bee did, begged forgiveness and even stated that she was under the influence of the popular sleep aid medication Ambien when she sent the tweet about Valeria Jarrett.
The end result of each woman’s career standing, however, is very different.
Roseanne instantly had her show canceled by ABC and even stations that show re-runs of her original sitcom like TV Land have stripped those old episodes from their lineup. Roseanne was even dropped by her talent agency after her offensive tweets.
In essence, Roseanne was instantly made a social pariah and shunned by those who has she has done business with for decades. No station, producer or advertiser would dare have anything to do with Roseanne Barr at this point, her career is ruined and she is forever without chance for redemption in the eyes of the media. She may as well join Mel Gibson in the black-balled from entertainment club.
Samantha Bee, on the other hand, has mostly emerged unscathed from her hateful remarks towards Ivanka Trump and after issuing a “sincere” apology and a quick statement from TBS, it appears all is forgiven
Thus is the benefit of being a member of the Democratic Party in good standing, similar to how being a member of the Communist Party in good standing under the Soviet Union would afford you particular advantages over those who opposed communism.
The message TBS and other television stations send when they refuse to fire an employee for viciously attacking conservatives is: It’s ok if you are vile, wicked or savage as long as you are a liberal in good standing who is attacking a conservative.
