On CNN on Thursday, host Brooke Baldwin addressed the same topic NBC’s Megyn Kelly mentioned earlier with regard to TBS’s Samantha Bee attack on Ivanka Trump: Double standards.
“Conservatives have been pointing to a double standard on how liberal stars who say these offensive things are treated, versus their conservative counterparts,” she said. “And in many cases, rightfully so.”
Baldwin then played a series of clips of Keith Olbermann, who is famous for his over-the-top condemnations. The litany of insults in the clips she plays, as well as in her additional summary after the clips, was impressive in both scope and variety. After the long set of examples is run through, Baldwin says “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 then moved on to Samantha Bee, showing the clip that has been everywhere today. Here’s her commentary following that clip.
