Trump calls for comedian Samantha Bee to lose her job

POTUS addressed the basic cabler's response in a tweet on Friday morning, asking, "Why aren't they firing no talent Samantha Bee for the terrible language used on her low ratings show?"

Stelter reports that sources with knowledge on the plan told him that she and her producers are "working on an in-depth response that will lead Wednesday's episode".

The POTUS complained of a "double standard", since TBS has not indicated an intention to fire Bee for calling Ivanka Trump a "feckless c-t" on her show. It was inappropriate and inexcusable.

"I like Samantha Bee a lot, but she is flat wrong to call Ivanka a c***".

On Tuesday, Walt Disney's ABC network cancelled a revival of Roseanne after its star Roseanne Barr made a racist remark in a post on Twitter, comparing a former top Obama administration official to an ape.

President Donald Trump is not pleased with TBS' handling of the Samantha Bee controversy.

You know, Ivanka, that's a lovely 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 cunt! Put on something tight and low-cut and tell your father to fuckin' stop it. Frustrated in how Ivanka isn't doing more to help people, Bee stressed her point, culminating in the vulgar remark.

Volcano eruption in Central America kills six
The Volcán de Fuego has spewed a stream of lava into a nearby village and sent a column of smoke and ash into the sky. A woman who was covered in ash told the Diario de Centroamerica that lava had poured through corn fields.

"You know, Ivanka, that's a attractive photo of you and your child", Bee said.

"Why aren't they firing no talent Samantha Bee for the frightful language used on her low ratings show", the United States' president asked in a new tweet. It's fortunate Bee was able to keep her job, however, because although her comment was explicit, it wasn't racist.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders addressed the incident on Thursday.

She was set to be honored by the Television Academy along with six other shows relating to social change.

She said: "He used to torture me every day". "That is probably-he says that instead of 'please, ' I'm guessing".

Controversial media figures on the left and right took some serious heat this week, but only one deserved to lose their job.
