Comedian Samantha Bee again apologized on her show “Full Frontal” on TBS to Ivanka Trump for calling her a “feckless c***.” But it was a half-hearted apology that insulted others, specifically Ted Cruz (R-TX) and all men who were offended.
Bee issued an angry apology for her controversial remarks regarding White House Senior Adviser Ivanka Trump, saying, “it is a word I have used on the show many times hoping to reclaim it.” She lost numerous advertisers for her rhetoric, but still has a show.

“Hi, I’m Samantha Bee,” she stated at the beginning of her show. Following her apology and the show’s opening credits, Bee appeared to mock those who had a problem with what she said by introducing a panel of men who would hit buttons to censor her. “Welcome to Full Frontal. I’m Samantha Bee. Sorry for breaking America,” she said in a sarcastic tone. “Listen, I wanted to introduce you to some exciting new additions to our show. These are our new mandatory censors who will be with us from now on.”
Bee looks like she’s aged 15 years over all this. “You know a lot of people were offended and angry that I used an epithet to describe the President’s daughter and adviser last week. “It is a word I have used on the show many times, hoping to reclaim it,” she tried to explain. “This time I used it as an insult, I crossed a line, I regret it and I do apologize for that.”
“I want this show to be challenging and I want it to be honest,” Bee continued, before inserting several jokes and criticism of the Trump administration’s policies into her monologue. “The problem is that many women have heard that word at the worst moments of their lives,” Bee continued. “A lot of them don’t want that word reclaimed, they want it gone. And I don’t blame them,” she said. “I don’t want to inflict more pain on them. I want this show to be challenging, and I want it to be honest, but I never intended it to hurt anyone. Except Ted Cruz,” she joked, eliciting laughter from the audience.
Not funny in the least. She has a thing for Cruz… a special hatred and fear of him. His Christianity and conservative principles are like garlic to a Hollywood vampire. “Many men were also offended by my use of the word,” she added, “I do not care about that.” Fair, because they don’t care about your show either.
“I hate that this distracted from more important issues,” Bee whined. For the record, her whole show is one huge distraction from really important issues. “I hate that I did something to contribute to the nightmare of 24 hour news cycles that were all white knuckling through. I should have known that a potty mouth insult would be inherently more interesting to them than juvenile immigration policy. I would do anything to help those kids,” she explained. “I hate that this distracted from them. So to them, I am also sorry.” Nice to know she cares more for illegal alien children than she does for her country and Americans in general.
“And look, if you are worried about the death of civility, don’t sweat it,” Bee said. “I’m a comedian. People who hone their voices in basement bars while yelling back at drunk hecklers are definitely not paragons of civility.” And she’s a perfect example of that. “I am, I’m really sorry that I said that word,” she added, “but you know what, civility is just nice words. Maybe we should all worry a little bit more about the niceness of our actions,” she concluded. Does that sound like a real apology to you? Me either.
Bee lost advertisers during the furor that followed her nasty epithet to the President’s daughter as a criticism of his immigration policies. Oh, and don’t forget she encouraged the First Daughter to seduce her own father incestuously to get him to change his immigration policies. Many on the left and in the media condemned Bee for her lack of civility in the episode, but it went way, way beyond that. TBS scrubbed the episode from the Internet and admitted in a statement that “those words should not have been aired.” Full Frontal sponsors State Farm and Autotrader suspended their advertisements on the weekly show. Noticeably absent from the show was bourbon whiskey maker Jim Beam.
Bee was aggressively defended by Hollywood celebrities. President Trump slammed Bee and her network and asked why the TBS host had not been fired for her “horrible language” and “low ratings.” A question we are all asking. Message received and apology not accepted from Samantha Bee.
I would like to sincerely apologize to Ivanka Trump and to my viewers for using an expletive on my show to describe her last night. It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.
