As Twitchy told you this week, Samantha Bee’s previous tweets elevating former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to anti-Trump superhero status did NOT age well, and now the full backpedal is complete:
Comedian Samantha Bee Apologizes For Turning Embattled NY AG Eric Schneiderman Into A 'Superhero' https://t.co/Bkts55YSiA
— The Daily Wire (@realDailyWire) May 9, 2018
The show, “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” issued this statement, via Daily Wire:
We taped this segment before the allegations against Eric Schneiderman came to light, and we sincerely apologize for characterizing him as a hero when, to so many women, he was the vilest villain. We’re keeping this piece online in the interest of integrity. We encourage you to make a donation to an anti-domestic violence organization like The Battered Women’s Justice Project: http://www.bwjp.org/ Also, if you’re a f**king disgrace, please consider not coming on our show.
So THAT latest attempt to create a Resistance hero sure backfired.
I guess those liberal tears are flowing down https://t.co/tsHuXA7wg3

I'm pretty sure that being funny is a requirement for one to be considered a comedian. https://t.co/UEg2l1hxN2
