Jon Stewart Defended Samantha Bee For Calling Ivanka Trump A “Feckless Cunt”

“They don’t give a shit about the word ‘cunt.’”

Jon Stewart defended Samantha Bee after the Full Frontal host apologized for calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless cunt” last week.

Stewart, who was at San Francisco’s Clusterfest comedy festival Sunday, said during an audience Q&A, “They don’t give a shit about the word ‘cunt,’” talking about the Trump administration.

Bee came under fire when she used her talk show to call out Ivanka Trump last week, saying, "Let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices you feckless cunt!”

The following morning, Bee issued an apology to Trump and her 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,” she said.

TBS also apologized for the comments in a statement. “Samantha Bee has taken the right action in apologizing for the vile and inappropriate language she used about Ivanka Trump last night,” the network said. “Those words should not have been aired. It was our mistake too, and we regret it.”

The former Daily Show host said right-wing conservatives’ reaction to Bee’s comments are a double standard, according to the Daily Beast.
