Samantha Bee Apologizes After Attack on Ivanka Trump That White House Calls 'Vicious'
The White House strongly condemned Samantha Bee’s recent remarks about White House senior adviser and first daughter Ivanka Trump on her show, Full Frontal, Tuesday. Bee referred to her a "feckless c+++," sparking outrage.
Bee went after Ivanka for her father President Donald Trump’s stance on undocumented immigrants. "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. "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."
- The White House is asking TBS, which airs her show, to publicly reprimand her. Bee apologized for the comment Thursday.
- This latest development comes after Roseanne Barr’s television show was cancelled when she likened Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Bee's language was "vile and vicious."
