Former Trump Aide Calls For Samantha Bee to be Fired For Crude Language

On Fox News’ Outnumbered today, former Trump deputy campaign manager David Bossie said Samantha Bee should face consequences for her profane comments about Ivanka Trump.

Bee apologized yesterday, but this morning President Trump tweeted, “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!”

The Outnumbered hosts talked about whether there will be further consequences for Bee’s comments.

Bossie thinks there should be:

“Actions have consequences in America, still today. Even though the left doesn’t want to have them. They have this hypocrisy going on here when somebody who’s a conservative says something like that, the left rises up, boycotts the advertisers of it, and there’s a machine that comes out to crush these people. This woman should not be on television, this is an outrageous thing to say. I hope that Ivanka Trump doesn’t accept the apology. All she’s doing it for is to try and get back in good graces with TBS. It’s not a sincere apology. She doesn’t feel bad, she’s a disgusting human being.”

He also took a shot at her show’s ratings.

Marie Harf asked Bossie if he thinks someone who used the c-word in talking about a Democrat like Nancy Pelosi should be fired.

Bossie said that kind of language shouldn’t be used about women of either party.

Melissa Francis did weigh in by saying, “I don’t think it’s for us to decide if she gets fired, it’s for the company to decide.”
