On tonight’s Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Bee delivered a special message following up on the backlash she’d received by calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless cunt” on last week’s episode.
Bee said she’d tried to reclaim that word by saying it often, but acknowledged that some women don’t want it reclaimed. Sounds kinda like attempts by the black community to ban the n-word every few years or so.
“I never intended (this show) to hurt anyone. Except Ted Cruz,” Bee quipped.
“I hate that this distracted from more important issues. I hate that I did something to contribute to the nightmare of 24-hour news cycles that we’re all white-knuckling through. I shoulda known that a potty-mouth insult would be inherently more interesting to them than juvenile immigration policy. I would do anything to help those kids. I hate that this distracted from them, so to them, I am also sorry.”
