Samantha Bee apologized on Thursday for having used a vulgar epithet to describe Ivanka Trump on her TBS show, saying she had “crossed a line.” TBS also issued an apology, but took no disciplinary action against the late night host. The apt description was delivered on Wednesday’s episode of “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee”. Friday morning, it became clear that Ms. Bee’s apology was not good enough for Donald Trump.
Ms. Bee insulted Ms. Trump toward the end of a nearly seven-minute segment devoted to the issue of migrant children. Appearing on a screen in the background was a photograph of Ms. Trump holding one of her children, which the president’s daughter had posted on social media earlier in the week. Ms. Bee described Ms. Trump’s posting of the photo as “oblivious,” given that the topic of migrant families was prominently in the news.
“Let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices, you feckless c*nt.”
The studio audience gasped — before breaking into cheers.
