Samantha Bee Offers Weak On-Air Apology – Never Addresses Ivanka Trump Directly (VIDEO)

Samantha Bee crossed a line last week by using the “C” word to describe Ivanka Trump. This week she opened her show by addressing the issue but as you can probably imagine, it was like a non-apology apology.

The late-night host began the new episode of her TBS show, “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” by directly addressing the controversy that erupted after she referred to Trump as “a feckless c***” during a segment about immigration policy.

“It is a word I have used on the show many times, hoping to reclaim it. This time, I used it as an insult. I crossed a line,” she said, echoing some of the language used in her initial apology. “I regret it and I do apologize.”

Bee added: “The problem is that many women have heard that word at the worst moments of their lives. A lot of them don’t want that word reclaimed. They want it gone, and I don’t blame them. I don’t want to inflict more pain on them.” (Bee also joked, “Many men were also offended by my use of the word…I do not care about that.”)

Bee said while she aims for her TBS series to be “challenging” and “honest,” “I never intended it to hurt anyone, except Ted Cruz.”
