Trump blasts Samantha Bee's 'horrible language' about Ivanka
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump says it's a "total double standard" that comedian Samantha Bee wasn't fired for using a vulgar, sexist term to describe his daughter and top White House adviser, Ivanka Trump.
Bee and the TBS network that airs her show, "Full Frontal," have apologized after Bee used the expletive. The incident came shortly after ABC canceled the show "Roseanne" after comedian Roseanne Barr compared an aide during the Obama administration, who is African-American, to an ape.
Barr, a favorite among conservatives, has also apologized.
Trump tweeted Friday: "Why aren't they firing no talent Samantha Bee for the horrible language used on her low ratings show? A total double standard but that's O.K., we are Winning, and will be doing so for a long time to come!"
