On Wednesday, TBS comedian Samantha Bee viciously lashed out at White House adviser Ivanka Trump, calling her a “feckless c—” for not challenging the President’s policies on immigration.
“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—.”
“He (the president) listens to you! Put on something tight and low cut and tell your father to f—— stop it.”
This comes one day after Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet directed at Valerie Jarrett. Roseanne has since apologized for her comment and ABC released a statement notifying the cancellation of the “Roseanne” show on their network.
TBS, which is part of Turner Broadcasting System, airs Bee's show "Full Frontal."
So far, there are no plans to cancel the show. Full Frontal Executive Producer Miles Kahn even celebrated Bee’s vulgar slur, which seems to have been scripted and pre-approved:
So, “feckless cunt” seems to be trending.

Sadly, the Left and mainstream media appear to be indifferent to the sexist and revolting comments directed at Ivanka Trump. In fact, some have even attempted to defend Bee’s behavior.
CNN host Brooke Baldwin said those who claim “double standard” are right:
“Conservatives have been pointing to a double standard on how liberal stars who say these offensive things are treated, versus their conservative counterparts,” she said. “And in many cases, rightfully so.”
Here is the full clip:
The word "c—" is the most vulgar way to describe a woman. Women in the public sphere are too often the target of mean-spirited jokes about their looks and choices. Offenders like Samantha Bee should be held accountable.
This is not how we #ChampionWomen. People on both sides of the aisle should work to be more respectful and work together without resorting to personal attacks. ALL women deserve to be treated with civility, regardless of their political views.
