Comedian Samantha Bee is apologizing for a remark that she made last night about Ivanka Trump.
On her TBS show, 'Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,' she laid into President Trump for not taking action to stop illegal immigrant families from being separated.
Then, she set her sights on Ivanka saying, (and we have to quote it here since they're removing all the clips from YouTube and Twitter):
"Ivanka Trump, who works at the White House, chose to post the second most oblivious tweet we've seen this week. 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***. Put on something tight and low-cut and tell your father to fu**ing stop it. Tell him it was an Obama thing and see how it goes ok?"
Yikes! Ding DONG with that mouth!
Well, ole' Sammy got quite the tongue lashing from pretty much everyone. The White House called her comments 'vile and vicious,' and she got a LOT of reaction on social media as well, so much so that she decided to issue an apology today.
TBS apologized too saying the words shouldn't have been aired and they regretted that it happened.
Now keep in mind folks, this it not a 'stream of consciousness show'...it's WRITTEN prior to broadcast. The script gets approved for air, so, I dunno, maybe she should NOT have written that line for herself, right?
Well, who knows, maybe one of her writers wrote it for her...either way, it was on the teleprompter, right?
Or wait, was it possibly a Ron Burgundy moment? Planned by one of her employees in an attempt to try to get her fired?
