Liberal Hate Mongering

Her slanted liberal views and bashing of everything Conservative without real thought or consideration of ideas other than her own. Bee is a lazy pseudo intellectual who spits liberal lies nightly. Keep your children away from this show.

She’s Obsessed With Trump and Not Funny

There’s nothing funny, original, or entertaining about her show. It’s actually odd that it is still on TV. We are over a year into a new administration and yet she still seems to regurgitate Trump material. It’s either really bad propaganda, or the writers are just awful. Either way, the host needs a therapist because I think Donald Trump broke her. Maybe worry about life back in her home of Canada where truckers have the Prime Minister in hiding.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (49):
Kids say (4):

This no-holds-barred series offers lots of fun, irreverent humor with a feminist flair. But behind the sex jokes and strong language is some intelligent commentary about the American political climate, as well as relevant social and economic issues.

Bee's brand of sharp humor is occasionally crude, but the overall show is full of laugh-out-loud moments. Fans of The Daily Show with John Stewart will be drawn to it, and people looking for some good satire will certainly find it here.
