What a week.
Let’s see …
Roseanne said a couple of really horrible things to Valerie Jarrett and Chelsea Clinton, and lost her show.
Samantha Bee called Ivanka Trump a ‘feckless c*nt’ and told her to seduce her own father in hopes of changing his immigration policy. TBS gave her an award.
Wonder what Comedy Central thinks of this old tweet from The Daily Show’s, Trevor Noah:
Almost bumped a Jewish kid crossing the road. He didn't look b4 crossing but I still would hav felt so bad in my german car!

Interesting note, there are a bunch of angry responses to this Trevor’s tweet in 2015 … and new ones today.
Some tweets just never go away, do they?

We don’t even know where to start, man.

What the hell? Pretty gross and fairly bigoted. What is the matter with you!?

Perhaps it would be easier to figure out what’s NOT the matter with him.

A real tweet from @Trevornoah joking about running over a “Jewish kid” & how he wouldn’t feel very bad.
How this man has a job is beyond us.
To be clear, this does in no shape or form excuse #Roseanne.
We don’t want a racist to have a job, because an antisemite has a job. https://t.co/sG6P00nr95

It just seems to be a good deal of hypocrisy when it comes to the entertainment industry.
Perhaps Roseanne would have a show still if she had insulted Condi Rice instead …
Or made a gross joke about hitting a Jewish child with a German car.
