To the shock of almost no one, Donald Trump Jr. tried to stick his nose into something he wasn’t actually involved in and ended up falling flat. Of course, that’s nothing new.
Republicans everywhere are appalled that poor sweet Roseanne Barr was fired and her show cancelled after the former comedian called an Iranian American former Obama administration official a monkey. Unfortunately for Republicans and Roseanne, that was not the first time she called an non-white person a monkey. The now unemployed entertainer at first apologized and blamed the sleeping aid Ambien for her outburst.
In an attempt to stick up for their beloved comedian Trump supporters tried to draw parallels and blame Roseanne’s fall on “double standards” while bringing up the fact that Full Frontal host Samantha Bee called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c***.”
What Trump supporters, and Donald Trump Jr. who shared an article about the double standards on his page, don’t seem to understand is that racism and vulgarity are two completely different things.
Bee’s comment came in response to the president’s daughter posting a photo of her and her child enjoying a Sunday morning, knowing that her father is imposing legislation that is ripping children from families.
‘You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful 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 c***.’
Ever the keyboard badass, Trump Jr. shared a story published by the Daily Caller, in which it’s claimed that the First Lady’s office responded to the vulgar name calling, calling it a double standard that Samantha Bee’s vulgarity isn’t being punished like Roseanne Barr’s racist remarks.
