Samantha Bee on Calling Ivanka Trump the ‘C’ Word: ‘I Think I Handled it Well’

After calling First Daughter Ivanka Trump a c u next Tuesday on her TBS show, she seems to be getting back on her feet. She followed up her insincere apology by telling The Hollywood Reporter that she “handled it well.”

“The level of ferocity is something I hadn’t quite experienced up to that point, but I assume I’ll go through it again,” the far left comedian said. “Maybe I’ll be better prepared next time. I think we handled it well, but it was a pretty steep learning curve.”

“It affected me a lot,” Bee kept going. “I’ve been thinking a lot about it. We had a scheduled vacation around July 4, and it was a time of reflection.”

Not only did Bee call Ivanka a “feckless c***” but she also referenced incest between Ivanka and her father. What spurred this rant on? Ivanka posting a photo of her and her son on Twitter.

Bee faced heavy criticism along with an advertising boycott, so she was forced to switch gears. This is when she gave her weak apology.

“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,” Bee wrote.

Her show has racked up seven Emmy nominations despite the incident.
