Samantha Bee is facing heavy criticism for calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless c–t” on “Full Frontal” Wednesday night.
“Let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices you feckless c–t!” Bee said in response to Ivanka not challenging her father’s immigration policies.
“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,” she added.

The segment was critical of a tweet where Ivanka was photographed holding her 2-year-old son, with Bee calling it “oblivious” given the forced separation of parents and children that the Trump administration was enforcing against undocumented immigrants at the U.S. border.
“Ivanka Trump, who works at the White House, chose to post the second-most oblivious tweet we’ve seen this week,” Bee said.
Coming just days after “Roseanne” was pulled by ABC over a racially-charged tweet, many — particularly those on the right — expressed outrage over what they considered a double standard. The oft-repeated charge on Fox News and elsewhere asserts that left-leaning and liberal media figures like Bee (or Bill Maher ) are held to a lower standard than conservative counterparts.
Both TBS and the White House did not immediately respond to request for comment from TheWrap.
Bee’s comments elicited reactions on Twitter, who sharply criticized her comments.
This is disgusting. How is this acceptable? And how are we expected to take any of these publications seriously if they gleefully repost something like this at the same time they (rightfully) condemn @therealroseanne? You know the saying Love is Love? Well Hate is Hate. https://t.co/YTjmZQ4zMV

How is this even remotely funny? Isn’t comedy supposed to make you laugh? https://t.co/oXtG91Ye0P

Question: “Dave, what do you mean the Left killed comedy?”

This absurd double standard is exactly why so many of us are pissed about @therealroseanne losing her show. Let’s settle on one set of rules applicable to everyone. https://t.co/sKfgRH2dA0

If a conservative said this about Malia Obama, they'd be dragged into the street and stoned to death https://t.co/e4b2ta8Ua8
