Sarah Silverman vs. Huckabee and O’Reilly
Just in case you were wondering, Sarah Silverman doesn’t like it when people tell her what to do with her vagina.
The controversial comedienne had strong words about Mike Huckabee’s comments regarding women’s health when she stopped by MSNBC yesterday.
“I guess I’m stunned, but at the same time, it’s so bizarre,” she said in the interview. “He says he wants women to control their libido, you know, I too would like to control my libido and my reproductive system.”
Silverman isn’t shy when it comes to speaking about politics. In fact, the funny woman often brings up issues regarding women at her comedy shows. She says she wants the audience to be aware of what is going on in the world, particularly when she feels the remarks are hypocritical.
“These are people who are anti-big government, and yet they want to make laws about my vagina, and what I do with my body,” she said. “I don’t think that would be tolerated if we started legislating men’s bodies.”

Silverman also doesn’t play coy when she’s trying to get her point across. Take, for example, a video she recently starred in that features she and Jesus discussing abortion. As you might imagine, this viral YouTube skit ruffled a few feathers, including those of Bill O’Reilly.
In the video, “Jesus” states that “fertilized eggs are not people. People are people.” He even drops the F-bomb by saying “I’m Jesus F****** Christ.”

The Fox News personality called Silverman’s video “very offensive” and stated he wanted to throw a pie at her. O’Reilly’s guest for the night, Laura Ingraham, also had an opinion about Silverman, calling her a “degenerate, foul-mouthed slob of a person.”
Twitter was filled with different takes on Silverman’s video. Here is a sampling:

Apparently it's considered funny to mock Jesus. Why do we continue to let them get away with it? #SarahSilverman

If you're so edgy #SarahSilverman, replace your Fake Jesus with a fake Mohammed. I dare you.
