This message is to CEO, John K. Martin;
I am deeply troubled that you would have a person such as Samantha Bee working for TBS. This woman has a terrible trash mouth and what she said about Ivanka Trump is absolutely unforgivable. I don't understand why there are so many hateful people in a country as great as ours and I am asking for you to fire her. She does not represent your organization well and it makes me sick that she would say such an ugly word about Ivanka. Makes me want to throw up, it's so vile!
