Anti-Trump comedian Sarah Silverman’s new show “I Love You, America” was just canceled after only one season.
Per Breitbart, on the October 25, Silverman once again attacked President Donald Trump, this time saying he has gone “full Hitler.”
Like many liberals, Sarah Silverman mischaracterized what “nationalist” means after the president said at a campaign rally that he considers himself to be one.
After showing the clip of the president calling himself a nationalist, Silverman scoffed that she heard Trump use the “n-word,” and by that, she meant “nationalist.” She went on to say that he went “full Hitler” and insisted “his bigotry is no longer masked by his rhetoric.”
The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Hulu is cutting ties with I Love You, America With Sarah Silverman.
Silverman, the show’s creator and host, made the announcement Wednesday morning via her prolific Twitter feed. The variety-talk series, a mix of monologue, interviews and field segments designed to unite a politically fragmented country, debuted in late 2017 and released 21 episodes as part of its bifurcated first season.
The news comes on the heels of rival Netflix canceling its recent string of late-night efforts from comics Michelle Wolf and Joel McHale. The moves have called into question the streaming community’s ability to crack the topical format, a challenge in part because viewers come as they please to episodes that are often designed to feel timely.
Well, Hulu cancelled I LOVE YOU AMERICA and we’re all pretty damn heartbroken.
… So in traditional twitter funeral style, I’ll be RTing the love.

Sarah Silverman’s Hulu series has been canceled.
The comedian took to Twitter to share the news while expressing her disappointment in the streaming’s decision to ax “I Love You America.”
“Well, Hulu cancelled I LOVE YOU AMERICA and we’re all pretty damn heartbroken,” Silverman shared. “… So in traditional twitter funeral style, I’ll be RTing the love.”
Silverman’s show debuted in 2017 and ran for 21 episodes. The “Funny or Die”-backed show was described as a comedic political talk show.
“We are so proud of ‘I Love You, America’ and congratulate Sarah, the producers and the entire team for engaging thoughtful conversation and showcasing such diverse points of view every week,” Funny or Die said in a statement to The Wrap.
“Whether it was connecting with firemen in Mineola, Texas over ‘pooping their pants’ stories, or going on a blind date with a conservative lobbyist in D.C., Sarah’s commitment was boundless and there is nothing more to say than “we lerve you” to the whole crew.”
