Samantha Bee slammed for calling Ivanka Trump a ‘feckless c–t': ‘How utterly disgusting!’
Samantha Bee is facing heavy criticism for calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless c–t” on “Full Frontal” Wednesday night.
“Let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices you feckless c–t!” Bee said in response to Ivanka not challenging her dad’s immigration policies.
“He listens to you. Put on something tight and low cut and tell your father to f–king stop it. Tell him it was an Obama thing and see how it goes,” she added.
The segment was critical of a tweet where Ivanka was photographed holding her 2-year-old child, calling it “oblivious” given the forced separation of parents and children that the Trump administration was enforcing against undocumented immigrants at the U.S. border.
“Ivanka Trump, who works at the White House, chose to post the second-most oblivious tweet we’ve seen this week,” Bee said.
Coming just days after “Roseanne” was pulled by ABC over a racially-charged tweet, many — particularly those on the right — expressed outrage over what they considered a double standard. The oft-repeated charge on Fox News and elsewhere asserts that left-leaning and liberal media figures like Bee (or Bill Maher ) are held to a lower standard than conservative counterparts.
Both TBS and the White House did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.Bee’s comments elicited reactions on Twitter, who sharply criticized her comments.
