Samantha Bee under fire for calling Ivanka Trump a ‘feckless c

Liberal comedian Samantha Bee found herself in hot-water Thursday after calling Ivanka Trump a "feckless c***", with conservatives citing the liberal double standard after Roseanne Barr was abruptly fired for a string of offensive tweets.

After Ivanka Trump posted a photo of her and her child amid resurfaced reports that undocumented children are being separated from their families when they are apprehended by immigration authorities, Bee referenced Barr's recent tweet.

"Tearing children away from their parents is so evil, it's the inciting incident in nearly every movie we've ever cared about", Bee said.

Late-night hosts on Wednesday discussed the Trump administration's policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the border and the aftermath of Roseanne Barr's racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett. "Ivanka Trump, who works at the White House, chose to post the second most oblivious tweet this week. Instead it's being reported as, 'Wow did you see what Samantha Bee said?' The media's outrage against Roseanne, which is justified, is kind of very selective and I'm not seeing it against Samantha Bee", he said. "Put on something tight and low cut and tell your father to f****** stop it. Tell him it was an Obama thing and see how it goes, OK".

"[President Donald Trump] listens to you. 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", Sanders said.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders demanded action be taken against Bee.

The rebuttals have been that this form of vulgar language doesn't compare to Barr's comment perpetuating racism and her history of doing so.

Bee's segment on her show featured her calling first daughter Ivanka Trump a "feckless cunt" for her inability to help stop her father's immigration policies.

"How is this acceptable?" she wrote. Now under Trump, Bee said, the situation is getting "so much worse".

"But you know what, what one person says never makes what another person says okay", Harlow replied.
