In the rush to denigrate President Donald Trump and all things conservative, “Full Frontal” host Samantha Bee swept up a cancer patient in her partisan assault… and then tried to quietly delete the video when the colossal screw up was realized.
But then, the internet is forever.
Advancing the left’s narrative that Trump and his supporter are the second coming of Nazi Germany, a clip mocking pro-Trump attendees at CPAC 2017 referred to a patient undergoing chemotherapy for stage 4 brain cancer as having “Nazi hair.”
Stephen N. Perkins, editor-in-chief of OUTSET, shared the offending clip in Twitter:
*Warning for harsh language.

It appears that the young man in the photo also responded with a direct appeal to the Canadian “comedian.”
Also, it's not a Nazi haircut. Richard Spencer's is, but mine's from cancer. 🤷🏼♂️🤷🏼♂️

Backed into a corner with nowhere to turn, Samantha Bee had little choice but to apologize:
@meg_kelly16 We deeply apologize for offending you and @_that_kyle. We only learned of his condition today & have removed him from the piece
— Samantha Bee (@iamsambee) March 9, 2017
But that didn’t get her off the hook with social media users:
That’s not the point @FullFrontalSamB. You’re looking at young people and associating them with nazis because of their haircut. Disgusting.

You’re just not a cool person. @FullFrontalSamB @_that_kyle

@FullFrontalSamB and maybe add that not everyone with that hairdo is a Nazi. For example- millions of dykish punk rock gals.

@FullFrontalSamB @_that_kyle How about instead of apologizing for “offending” him, you apologize for being crass and shallow?

@_that_kyle – Once again, the Left trying to be funny. If you do it to one of them, they go ballistic and threaten boycotts. @iamsambee
