The liberal entertainment industry has gone “completely off the edge” since President Donald Trump’s election, Tucker Carlson said on his Fox News television show Thursday.
“Comedians lost their sense of humor,” entertainers began shouting vile, vulgar insults on television – and defending the outrageous vulgarity of other celebrities.
TBS “Full Frontal” host Samantha Bee’s vulgar on-air attack on Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, on Wednesday – in which Bee called Ms. Trump a “feckless c**t” – is just one example, Carlson said. Bee’s sexist slur isn’t funny, it’s simply “A dumb person’s political harangue masquerading as comedy,” Carlson said.
And, other entertainers are actually defending Bee’s slur, Carlson said. Filmmaker Michael Moore called Bee a “truth-teller” and declared her vulgar assault “brilliant.” Comedian Kathy Griffin, likewise, defended the comment while attacking White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee for denouncing it.
It’s all about topping, what Hollywood considers to be, Trump’s vulgarity and radical statements, Carlson said:
“So, the left is arguing that Trump is radical. How have they responded? By coming way more radical, by going completely off the edge. They see Trump as vulgar. Okay, so now they shout profanity on television and at campaign events.”
And, by joining in on the profanity and outrageous attacks, Democrats like Sen. Kristen Gillibrand (D-NY) are actually destroying their own party, Carlson concluded.
