CNN Anchor Calls Out Sam Bee, Keith Olbermann For Vile Comments
CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin exploded Thursday on late night comedian Samantha Bee and ESPN commentator Keith Olbermann for their vile attacks on the Trump administration.
Since Roseanne Barr’s show was canceled on Tuesday over a racist tweet, conservatives have pointed out that liberal commentators have made similarly crass comments. (RELATED: Where Was The Apology For Trump? — Sarah Sanders’ Responds To Roseanne Question)
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders specifically mentioned Keith Olbermann, who was recently re-hired by ESPN despite a number of explicit tweets about the president and his administration.
Baldwin took up the torch against Olbermann during her CNN show on Thursday.
“Conservatives have been pointing to a double standard on how liberal stars who say these offensive things are treated versus their conservative counterparts,” Baldwin said. “And, in many cases, rightfully so. Take Keith Olbermann.”
“In addition to tell the president to ‘go to hell,’ he has also spewed the following to describe Trump and his family: a cowardly f-word, a mother-f-er, a Nazi, a stupid traitor, a rat-faced git,” she rattled off. “Despite all of this he just got another plum job. A job, ironically, at the same company that just booted Roseanne for violating its values.”
Baldwin also slammed Bee for using the “c-word” and asserted that she is “part of the problem.”
“To use that word from a woman to another woman — offensive is offensive, wrong is wrong whether you are on the left or the right,” she concluded.
