Samantha Bee tears into Ivanka Trump with profane critique, sparking Roseanne comparisons

Samantha Bee has a message for Ivanka Trump: "Do something!"

During Wednesday's episode of Full Frontal, the late night host had a short but striking message for the president's daughter, who she criticized for posting "the second most oblivious tweet we've seen this week."

"You know, Ivanka, that's a beautiful photo of you and your child but let me just say, one mother to another: Do something about your dad's immigration practices you feckless (expletive)," she said. "He listens to you."

She also suggested a way to get President Trump to listen.

"Put on something tight and low cut and tell your father to (expletive) stop it," she said. "Tell him it was an Obama thing and see how it goes."

(Warning: This clip is NSFW.)

Bee's comment, especially the use of the c-word, didn't go without notice, as many tweeted their disapproval.

Conservative blogger Erick Erickson pointed out inequalities he sees between what liberals and conservatives can get away with saying.

"So ABC just fired Roseanne for her tweet. Will TBS fire Samatha Bee for her actual on-air monologue?," he questioned. "Seems to me that calling Ivanka Trump a 'feckless (expletive)' is just as bad as suggesting Valerie Jarrett is an ape."

He continued, "All the progressives in my timeline telling me the Roseanne situation and Samantha Bee situation are not comparable will, IĆ¢€™m sure, be fine when Trump supporters start calling Clinton, Warren, Pelosi, etc. the same as what Samantha Bee called Ivanka Trump."

NBC's Megyn Kelly also tweeted about Bee's comments.

"This is disgusting. How is this acceptable? And how are we expected to take any of these publications seriously if they gleefully repost something like this at the same time they (rightfully) condemn @therealroseanne? You know the saying Love is Love? Well Hate is Hate," she tweeted, sharing a story about Bee's comments.

Author Herman Cain also commented about canceling Bee's show.

"Hey @TBSNetwork, shall I assume the Samantha Bee cancellation news will come later today? No?" he tweeted. "You don't care that this poor man's Jon Stewart is completely horrible? Ok, then..."

Others agreed with Bee's comments.

"Ivanka Trump is a feckless (expletive). Thank you for your honesty, Samantha Bee," one user tweeted. "(Samantha Bee) is great at triggering conservative snowflakes."

&q uot;If you think Samantha Bee's vulgarity is equivalent to racism then you're either ignorant, maliciously dishonest, or a racist yourself," another said, defending Bee.

"Stop comparing it to what @TheRealRoseanne said. Roseanne used a racist term. Samantha did not," another said.

Bee also took aim at Roseanne Barr's tweet that suggested sleep drug Ambien caused her to make racist comments earlier this week.

Barr wrote in a since-deleted tweet Tuesday that "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj." The "vj" stood for Valerie Jarrett, an Obama White House aide. This led to the cancellation of her hit ABC show Roseanne.

Sanofi, who makes Ambien, tweeted a response to Barr, who claimed she was "Ambien tweeting": "While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication."

Full Frontal decided to s ee what it would be like if racism was a side effect, however, by imagining a commercial for the drug that reassured "a great night sleep and a convenient excuse are just one little pill away."

The fake ad also warned that in addition to helping you fall asleep, the drug may make you "more racist."

"I mean, you were already racist, but maybe Ambien made it worse?" the narrator says. "Until you know how Ambien will effect you, you shouldn't drive in urban areas, operate heavy machinery or visit a Starbucks."

The narrator also read off a list of "extremely not rare side effects" that all had racial undertones including, "clutching your purse as a person of color walks by," "deciding to move 'up state'" and more.
