White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders blasted the “vile and vicious” language used by Samantha Bee against Ivanka Trump and called for action against her.
Bee came under fire for her attack on the first daughter during her TBS show “Full Frontal.” The comedian who once called for “straight-up decency” followed up by slamming Trump as a “feckless c-nt.”
TBS is facing backlash after Bee’s outburst while Sanders blasted the “appalling” silence from the left, especially in the wake of the firing of Roseanne Barr by ABC for tweets some deemed as a racist attack on former Obama aide, Valerie Jarrett.
“The language used by Samantha Bee last night is vile and vicious. The collective silence by the left and its media allies is appalling,” Sanders told TheWrap in a statement.
“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.
Bee’s jab came during her opening monologue in which she was criticizing President Trump on immigration.
“Let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices you feckless c–t!” Bee said. “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.”
TBS and Time Warner, currently negotiating a possible company merger which is opposed by the president, have not yet announced any action against Bee.
