After the hit show ‘Roseanne’ was canceled following a tweet from star Roseanne Barr, many are openly pondering the double standards in the entertainment industry. And now pressure is mounting to give the same treatment to liberal ideologues Joy Behar, Bill Maher, and Samantha Bee.
Wait, Bill Maher makes comparisons to Trump being a gorilla all the time?
They get classified as "jokes" by the media and he is of course allowed to keep his show and not have his life ruined
Bill Maher is a liberal, Roseanne is a free-thinking Trump supporter

Remember when Joy Behar referred to homeschooled children as “demented” while on air?

Bill Maher, Samantha Bee, and Joy Behar have all said reprehensible things on television and social media. But they almost never see any retribution and are still gainfully employed.
But some are arguing that this needs to stop on both sides:
I’m not gonna take part in a purge of Bill Maher. I don’t agree with many of his views, and don’t even have HBO. But he’s one of the few people on the Left willing to share a country with dissenting views. So it’s myopically stupid to turn on him. We need more of him, actually.
