Embattled comedian Samantha Bee apologized to Ivanka Trump Thursday, saying her comments were “inappropriate and inexcusable” after she called the First Daughter a “feckless c***” on her television program.
Bee issued her “sincere apology” after both conservatives and liberals acknowledged the blatant double-standard just days after Roseanne Barr was suddenly fired over a string of “repugnant” tweets.
“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,” Bee said in a statement. “It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.”
Bee viciously smeared Ivanka Trump during a segment on her television program this week, asking the First Daughter to intervene in her father’s immigration policies; saying “Do something about your dad’s immigration practices, you feckless c–t!’”

FIREWORKS: Meghan McCain UTTERLY DESTROYS ‘Fire and Fury’ Author on LIVE TV
Meghan McCain unloaded on “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff on live television Wednesday, telling the journalist behind the bombshell book that “there are lots of factual errors” in his exposé and asking the reporter why people should “trust” what he writes.
“Michael, your credibility is being questioned. Trump says the book is full of lies and misrepresentations,” McCain told Wolff on ‘The View.’
McCain went on to list the errors plaguing the book; referencing reporters, newspapers, magazines, and others that have accused Wolff of outright fabricating events depicted in “Fire and Fury.”
“Did you ever interview Jared and Ivanka? How can I trust some of these quotes?”
“There are a lot of factual errors in here. So, what I want to know from you is, what do you say to people?” pressed McCain.
“I think this hits a special place for me because my family has been the subject of a book like this: “Game Change,” […] And lots of disgruntled staffers give interviews like this. I’m curious, when you talk about staff, you didn’t talk to his cabinet. Did you ever interview Jared and Ivanka? How can I trust some of these quotes?” she fired-back.

KNIVES OUT: Chelsea Clinton Says ATTACKING IVANKA ‘Fair Game’
Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton didn’t hold back during a recent interview on late-night television, suggesting attacks on President Trump’s daughter Ivanka were “fair game” because she routinely advises the Commander-in-Chief.
Clinton was speaking with comedian Stephen Colbert when she was asked if criticism of the President’s daughter was appropriate, saying “Do you have any sympathy for her?”
“Do you think she’s fair game for criticism or is she just another Presidential child?” Colbert pressed.
“I think anyone who works for the president should expect to be scrutinized for whatever decisions not only he or she is making, but whatever decisions the White House is making on any given day,” fired-back Clinton.
“It’s clear that she has supported policies and decisions that I don’t agree with, I’ve been very vocal about my opposition to President Trump,” she added.
