TBS talk show host Samantha Bee created a lot of controversy when she called the president’s daughter a “feckless c**t” on her cable TV show.
She attacked the president’s daughter over a tweet Ivanka Trump posted of her child.
“Ivanka Trump, who works at the White House, chose to post the second most oblivious tweet we’ve seen this week,” Bee said on her show, “Full Frontal.” “You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child, but let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices, you feckless c***!”
“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,” Bee said in a statement Thursday.
A TBS spokesperson said that Bee will address the controversy when her show returns to the air on Wednesday.
As conservative political analyst Ben Shapiro pointed out, “Full Frontal” is not a live show. It is recorded in advance, so therefore TBS and the producers had no problem with the insulting segment to begin with, so how sincere is the apology that she initially made?
Whatever he is going to say on Wednesday is most likely an effort to stop possible advertiser backlash.
