Liberal comedian and late night talk show host Samantha Bee faced a massive amount of backlash recently following her vulgar remarks against First Daughter Ivanka Trump. In a failed humor attempt to target the Trump administration’s immigration policies, Bee called Ivanka a “feckless c***,” and in addition, suggested she “put on something tight and low cut” to discuss immigration with her father.
Following the outrage and losing Autotrader as an advertiser, Bee finally issued an apology statement. In her statement, she “sincerely apologized to Ivanka Trump” and assured that she “deeply regret” her critical comments.
Although Ivanka Trump has not commented on the incident as of Thursday afternoon, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders did respond to Bee’s comments in a statement. In agreement with many other conservatives, Sanders believes that Bee should be penalized for her actions.
“The language used by Samantha Bee last night is vile and vicious,” Sanders stated. “The collective silence by the left and its media allies is appalling.”
“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,” she added.
The White House Press Secretary also made national headlines recently when she held back tears trying to answer a young boy’s question about safety and school shootings. Watch the video below to see Sanders choke up as she replies to the child:
