President Donald Trump tweeted late-night host Samantha Bee should be fired on Friday for her vulgar remark about Trump’s daughter Ivanka, calling the situation “a total double standard.”
Samantha Bee’s late-night TBS program is not a novel one. She summarizes a left-of-MSNBC version of events to a receptive audience, delivering rapid-fire one-liners and progressive protestations, all supplemented by news clips to give her routines a feeling of high-minded, informative satire. Other such shows exist.
The White House responded on Thursday to remarks about Ivanka Trump made by comedian Samantha Bee on her show “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee.”
Ivanka Trump will lead the U.S. delegation at the 2018 Winter Olympics closing ceremonies in Pyeongchang, South Korea, later this week, White House officials announced Wednesday.
