In a series of tweets, Ivanka Trump wrote she was ignoring her critics, “If thou workest at what is before thee, following right reason seriously, vigorously, calmly, without allowing anything to distract thee…If thou holdest to this, expecting nothing, fearing nothing, but satisfied with thy present activity according to nature…thou wilt live happy. And there is no man who will be able to prevent this,” she tweeted, quoting Roman emperor and philosopher Marcus Aurelius.
No one blamed ABC when it fired Roseanne Barr for stepping out of line with a racist comment against Valerie Jarrett. However, there seems to be someone who has taken issue with TBS for not doing the same to its comedian Samantha Bee after she roasted Ivanka Trump with an obscene comment, and it’s not just a random someone, per Right Wing News.
“Why aren’t they firing no talent Samantha Bee for the horrible language used on her low ratings show?” President Trump wrote in a Friday morning tweet. “A total double standard but that’s O.K., we are Winning, and will be doing so for a long time to come!”
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has also responded to Bee’s comment.
Speaking to TheWrap, Sanders stated that “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,” she added.
Here’s how the Daily Wire recounted the sordid affair:
“Bee, host of a show called “Full Frontal,” called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c***” during Wednesday night’s broadcast.”
“”You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child, but let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices, you feckless c***,” Bee said after showing a photo of Ivanka and her toddler son, Theodore.”
“Liberals quickly came to Bee’s defense, and while she was forced to apologize, TBS does not appear to be moving toward firing her — even though some advertisers have pulled out.”
“In fact, Bee’s show was honored Thursday night by the Television Academy as one of the most “meaningful and relevant” on the air. Journalists were barred from covering the event in person.”
TBS thought that an apology would do for Bee, and this is where the double standard becomes blatant as Roseanne acknowledged she had begged ABC’s Ben Sherwood not to cancel her 1980’s hit sitcom, but to no avail. CEO of Disney, Bob Iger, reached out to Jarrett to apologize to her.
Trump lashed out at Iger over all this: “Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that ‘ABC does not tolerate comments like those’ made by Roseanne Barr. Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe I just didn’t get the call?” POTUS tweeted Wednesday.
As for Ivanka, President Trump’s oldest daughter tweeted a series of tweets to say she was ignoring her critics. “If thou workest at what is before thee, following right reason seriously, vigorously, calmly, without allowing anything to distract thee…If thou holdest to this, expecting nothing, fearing nothing, but satisfied with thy present activity according to nature…thou wilt live happy. And there is no man who will be able to prevent this,” she tweeted, quoting Marcus Aurelius. Well said and spoken with nothing but class and grace in the face of her enemies.
