Samantha Bee-itch

I've never seen "Full Frontal With Samantha Bee".  It's not from lack of opportunity.  On two occasions, I tried to watch the show but found it to be tedious and preachy, a poor combination for what is supposed to be humor.  Now we have further proof of the insensitive bogus superiority that the show claims.

In the latest episode, there was apparently a report from CPAC by a "correspondent".  The reporter found a guy with his hair shaved off the side of his head and made fun of him for his "Nazi hair."  This attack was shown on national TV.  It turns out, however, that the fellow had just started having chemotherapy and radiation for a stage four cancerous brain tumor.  The shaved area on his head was the result of the treatment.

I guess there's nothing like having an unfunny comedienne make fun of signs of your illness by calling you a Nazi.

After a major amount of outrage on the internet, the show apologized in a tweet.

It's not enough.  It's really not enough.
