Comedian Jon Stewart, formerly of the “Daily Show,” came to the defense of Samantha Bee’s vulgar and vicious attack on Ivanka Trump at an event in San Francisco. Stewart, speaking at a Q&A at Clusterfest, blamed conservatives for creating a “game” and appeared to suggest that the “Full Frontal” host shouldn’t have apologized for her remarks.
“They don’t give a s*** about the word ‘c***.’ “That is probably— he says that instead of ‘please,’ I’m guessing,” Stewart said referring to reports of President Trump using explicit language himself. Stewart is considered wise by leftists and somewhat of a leftist Yoda figure.
Stewart, 55, appeared at San Francisco’s “Clusterfest,” where he waxed poetic about the state of politics in America today. He defended Bee, a former correspondent on his show, for her foul rant on her own TV show, “Full Frontal” and launched an assault on all things conservative. He seemed to imply that Bee shouldn’t have apologized. Stewart said there is nothing anyone can do to “make them give up this ‘We’re the real victims’ game,” because, “it’s a game, it’s a strategy, and it’s working.” It’s always the Republicans’ fault in the Stewart universe.
“Please understand that a lot of what the Right does, and it’s maybe their greatest genius, is they’ve created a code of conduct that they police, that they themselves don’t have to, in any way, abide,” he said. Then Stewart offered words of advice to Bee. “Don’t get caught in a trap of thinking you can live up to a code of integrity that will be enough for the propagandist right. There isn’t. And so, create your own moral code to live by, but don’t be fooled into trying to make concessions that you think will mollify them.”
Samanth Bee used to appear on “The Daily Show” with Stewart frequently in the past. She apologized half-heartedly after she used vulgarity to slam Ivanka Trump in a monologue over a photograph the first daughter shared on social media of her holding her little boy. Bee also encouraged incest between the First Daughter and President Trump to get him to change his immigration policies. “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,” Bee said in a statement. “It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.” But that same day, at a private awards ceremony where press was not allowed, Bee said it was just a word and instead people should focus on Trump’s immigration policies instead.
TBS also issued a lame apology after Bee did: “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.” They eventually scrubbed the whole segment, but not before tons of leftists defended it in a supreme show of hypocrisy.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called the comment “vile and vicious,” while also noting the clear double standard. “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,” Sanders told Fox News.
Bee’s attack set social media on fire and people across the country were enraged and demanded her show be canceled. It wasn’t and probably won’t be. “If this statement had been addressed to a child of a former president, Samantha Bee would be out of a job,” one social media user wrote. “Roseanne deserved to get fired for her comment. Samantha Bee called Ivanka a ‘c***’ on air and Keith Olbermann routinely calls the President a ‘motherf***er.’ Do you think either will get fired? Maybe see why so many Americans think there’s a media double-standard for liberals,” another tweeted.
In another article, Stewart is quoted as saying “You could not find a kinder, smarter, more lovely individual than Samantha Bee. Trust me, if she called someone a c***…” And: “After comparing Trump to an incurable virus, Stewart warned Democrats against relying on the Mueller investigation or any other scandal to force Trump out of office before his first term is up. “In the same way that Donald Trump doesn’t really care about the word ‘c***,’ let’s be honest with ourselves,” he said. “We don’t really give a f*** about Russia.””
