Comedian Samantha Bee called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c—” on her show “Full Frontal” on Wednesday.
Bee closed the segment by taking aim at Ivanka Trump for the Twitter photo. Bee called on the first daughter to use her powers of persuasion with her father to change the policy that many feel is cruel.
“You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful picture of you and your child.Let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices, you feckless c—. He listens to you. Put on something tight and low cut and tell him to f—— stop it. Tell him it was an Obama thing and see how it goes, OK?”
This is the tweet that started it all:
Megyn Kelly called Bee’s insult “disgusting.” “How is this acceptable?” she wrote on Twitter. “And how are we expected to take any of these publications seriously if they gleefully repost something like this at the same time they (rightfully) condemn @therealroseanne? You know the saying Love is Love? Well Hate is Hate.”
Media guru Howard Kurts settled for an intimating “ahem.”
Amid the Roseanne uproar, not seeing much outrage over Samantha Bee calling Ivanka the C-word (for posting a picture with her son)
Ari Fleischer, who served as George W. Bush’s press secretary.
I remember when a congressional staffer to a backbench GOP Congressman criticized the way the Obama children dressed at a Rose Garden event. It made the network news.
The MSM was outraged for days. She lost her job.
Compare ABC’s reaction to Roseanne Barr’s tweet w TBS’s non-reaction to Samantha Bee and you’ll see a double-standard in action. There’s no uprising against Bee. Why? Because she is liberal. Because the MSM protects Obama and his aides, but not Trump. The hypocrisy is sickening.
Bee released a statement on Thursday apologizing to Ivanka for her remarks.
“I would like to sincerely apologize to Ivanka Trump and to my viewers for using an expletive on my show to describe her last night. It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it,”
