Ya’ll remember when people were warning that Trump had no respect for the press and he would wield his presidential power like a tyrant and possibly BAN THE MEDIA from the White House, and it would be the worst thing eveerrrr?!
Actually, after a year of Trump, journalists are being BANNED from an awards ceremony for SAMANTHA BEE instead!!
Kinda ironic, huh?
From the Hill:
Reporters were barred from entering a Television Academy reception for an event honoring TBS late night host Samantha Bee on Thursday, the same day she faced a firestorm in the media for using a slur to refer to first daughter Ivanka Trump.
A spokesperson for the organization told The Hollywood Reporter and other media outlets that press would not be allowed to enter the reception ahead of the awards ceremony “as a result of today’s events involving Samantha B,” according to the Reporter.
Now, I was one of those conservatives that was actually concerned with the threats that Trump was making against the media – he really did sound kinda fascist at the time. BUT, a year in, he’s hardly done ANY of the things he said he would do. All he’s done is talked bad about the media – so what?
Meanwhile, reporters are actually being prevented from reporting on an event by LIBERALS protecting a LIBERAL who attacked the president’s daughter.
So. That’s hilarious.
