DOUBLE STANDARD: 'Roseanne' gets canned while 'Full Frontal' apology saves Sam Bee

On May 27th, Ivanka Trump posted a lovely picture with her son. There's a genuine warmth to the picture, mother and son. They're touching foreheads and smiling. The picture is artful and sweet. The caption reads, “My heart! #SundayMorning."

Samantha Bee, whose show Full Frontal is the comedic talk show equivalent of campus feminism, responded to the picture in an unusual way: "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 ----" and then she said the most offensive word in the English language.

Most people — especially the feminist types who follow Bee — agree that the word should never, ever be used. According to the Oxford Dictionary, the word that Bee used, is so unbelievably offensive that it's hard to even hint at. “All senses of this word are vulgar slang and are very strongly tabooed and censored . . . There are many words used to refer to people in sexual terms. However, to call a person a ----, especially a woman, is one of the most hateful and powerful examples of verbal abuse in the English language."

She continued: "Put on something tight and low-cut and tell your father to f***ing stop it."

She wasn't even on Ambien. She was on camera. Meaning, the line was scripted. The hypocrisy is actually nauseating.

Oh, but she apologized. "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," she wrote in a tweet.

Will her show be canceled?

TBS, the network that airs her “political" show, wrote, "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."

By not firing her, they're telling the nation's young women and girls, “It's okay to abuse women you don't agree with."

Her show is scripted. Meaning, that line was approved by a slew of writers, producers and lawyers — in other words, it is accurately representative of the network itself. Roseanne made a stupid joke, and she faced the consequences of it. ABC cancelled Roseanne's show, a lucrative and successful sitcom, because of a bad tweet. Will Full Frontal with Samantha Bee be cancelled for the heinous, inexcusable thing that Samantha Bee said, on air? They should. Her show, Full Frontal, is nowhere near as successful as Roseanne's.

Recently, it has been doing poorly. The show's viewership has taken a precipitous dive. TBS has lost ad revenue on the failing show. By not firing her, they condone the behavior. By not firing her, they're telling the nation's young women and girls, “It's okay to abuse women you don't agree with." In other words, conservative women.

Double standards aside — if that's even possible — Bee's comment is objectively awful, crass and demeaning. You can guarantee that, if a conservative had used that word to describe Hillary or Chelsea Clinton or really any woman at all, they would've been immediately been disemboweled by feminists.

If you polled feminists, if you asked them, “Is it ever okay to refer to a woman as a c---?" They would no doubt unequivocally say no. Why is it okay now? Worse, it's part of a pattern of terrible indiscretions and depraved insults against the women surrounding President Trump. Why? The most recent example were the excoriating remarks about Sarah Huckabee Sanders that Michelle Wolf, also a former Daily Show member, made at the Correspondents Dinner. (The Daily Show produces such a wonderful alumni.)

Leftists can say and do whatever they want, even things that nobody should do or say, and no one can stop them.

Two of Samantha Bee's sponsors, AutoTrader and State Farm Insurance, have pulled ads from the show. But the show has plenty of other advertisers: Orkin, Geico, Taco Bell, Apple, Verizon, Outshine Snacks, Haagen Daas, Jim Bean, Microsoft, Febreze, Discover. By not pulling advertisements, they are implicit in their support of Bee and her vile comment. If they had any sense — unlike TBS — they'd rebuke Bee and pull their ads. But no, it won't happen, because Leftists can say and do whatever they want, even things that nobody should do or say, and no one can stop them.

Samantha Bee used the most offensive word in the English language to describe Ivanka Trump. And, somehow, people are fine with it. This is the world we're going to leave to our children, our sons and our daughters.

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on air this morning. Watch the video below.

Glenn breaks down the Samantha Bee controversy

Samantha Bee lashes out with vulgar remark about Ivanka Trump.

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"

While the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair.

But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands. There is an urgent need to focus on the ongoing Senate races. Glenn has warned us of the Left's radical plans should they sweep this election, and the wolves are already descending on Georgia.

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn reveals the desperate measures they're taking to win two Georgia runoff races in January and claim the Senate. Senator Mike Lee joins to warn what will happen to the country if Chuck Schumer becomes Senate majority leader and why we must have a transparent process so that Americans can trust the final count.

Later, Glenn reveals a new project for Americans who are not ready to roll over and let the Marxists win the battle for our country.
