Lets face it, if anyone in the Trump camp or even remotely associated with it called another woman a “feckless ct” the outrage would be far and wide.
However, before any you conservatives get too excited Roseanne still deserved to be fired, you can use your 2nd amendment right to say whatever you want, but if what you say is racist you can’t be surprised if you get fired from your job. Both Roseanne and Samantha Bee have been idiotic this week, but considering the fact we are in #metoo era where if you even wink at a girl, you could get arrested for sexual harassment(Disclaimer: this is a joke). It’s surprising to see liberal treat Samantha Bee’s remarks so nonchalantly. Actually, I’m not that surprised, selective outrage is a mainstay in 2018.
Of course Trump had to come to the defense of his daughter
“Why aren’t they firing no talent Samantha Bee for the horrible language used on her low ratings show?” he tweeted early Friday. “A total double standard but that’s O.K., we are Winning, and will be doing so for a long time to come!”
The Fake News Network, has done their best to defend Bee, in this article titled ‘Samantha Bee’s message was right even if her word wasn’t‘. The piece is written by Peggy Drexler a research psychologist and the author of “Our Fathers, Ourselves: Daughters, Fathers, and the Changing American Family” and “Raising Boys Without Men.”
She is indeed an informed academic on the topic of feminism, but she spends the entire article defending Bee based on the fact she is a comedian.
She even pulls out this gem, the old it used to mean this in the past.
And, just for argument’s sake, while the word “c***” is generally considered very offensive because of its strong misogynistic overtone, some literary feminists have argued that it’s possibly empowering. Inga Muscio’s 2002 book “C***: A Declaration of Independence,” for example, traces the word back to its origins as an ancient title of respect.
