The White House May 31 wasted little time criticizing comedian Samantha Bee for calling the president’s daughter a “feckless c**t” during the May 30 opening monologue of her political show, “Full Frontal” on TBS.
“The language used by Samantha Bee last night is vile and vicious. The collective silence by the left and its media allies is appalling,” said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, as reported by The Wrap. “Her disgusting comments and show are not fit for broadcast, and executives at Time Warner and TBS must demonstrate that such explicit profanity about female members of this administration will not be condoned on its network.”
Bee, who was commenting on President Trump’s immigration policies, opined that Ivanka Trump, as a mother and advisor to her dad, should do more to impact policies that have separated members of the families of undocumented immigrants.
Trump made illegal immigration a cornerstone of his campaign, calling for the construction of a wall between the U.S. and Mexico to keep out immigrants he claims are flooding across the border from Mexico and Latin America.
Since the election, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have increased rounding up undocumented workers following minor run-ins with the law, including traffic citations.
“Let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices you feckless c**t!” Bee said on the monologue. “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.”
TBS and Time Warner have not responded publicly to the issue.
