Jon Stewart Defends Samantha Bee, Says Outrage Part of a Right-Wing 'Game'

Jon Stewart has a theory about the Samantha Bee controversy

Sanders told The Wrap in a statement: "The language used by Samantha Bee last night is vile and vicious".

Ivanka Trump being called the c-word is not something that Samantha Bee should have apologized for, Jon Stewart says. The former Daily Show host took exception to White House tactics to get the TBS show canceled arguing that it was all part of a "game" that the political right in the US play.

Last week, Bee experienced major backlash after commenting on Ivanka's post of her with her son, which was seen as a bit tone-deaf due to the fact it was shared following the news that there were over 1,500 immigrant children that were being held by the government missing.

Kayleigh McEnany wants there to be consequences for Samantha Bee for calling Ivanka Trump a "feckless cunt" on her show Wednesday.

"Why aren't they firing no talent Samantha Bee for the terrible language used on her low ratings show?" he tweeted Friday morning.

Net Neutrality Ends Tomorrow, FCC On Track To Remove Rules As Scheduled
It will head to the State Assembly, where hearings will begin in June and must be voted on by the end of August. He insisted that the internet will remain an open platform now that the regulations are gone.

Stewart's remarks were reported by The Daily Beast, who attended Stewart's appearance at the Clusterfest comedy festival in San Francisco over the weekend.

Stewart said the controversy surrounding Bee represented a "game" and "strategy" from right-wing politicians at large.

The beef goes back farther than last week's brouhaha, when Bee used harsh slang about an intimate part of the female anatomy to describe the president's daughter in a picture holding her child.

Stewart addressed Bee's controversy and apology first by addressing "liberals" at large. Regarding the political right in the USA, he said, "They don't give a s*** about the word 'c***.'" He also reportedly joked that United States President Donald Trump probably says the "c-word" instead of "please". "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". "He says that instead of "please, ' I'm guessing".
