To be honest, I found it a bit strong, but was it really any worse than other things she's said on her show?
Most of the time I like her show, as she makes good points. Sometimes she goes a little off-kilter, however, and this one was one of those times.
Bret Stephens from NBC on Bill Maher's show said it right:"We should be able to make intelligent distinctions between what Roseanne said, which was an example of hatred, and what Samantha Bee said, which was an example of outrage... her outrage at an outrageous police towards immigrants."
"So yes, she shouldn't have used either the word she used, or misused the word feckless, which really is almost as criminal, but I get her point, which is that she is furious that Ivanka Trump is participating, but not suffering, the moral consequences of an administration that is forcibly separating mothers from their children, something that should never happen in America."
Trump had no problem with people wearing 'Hillary is a Cunt' t-shirts at his rallies. Cunt's an insult that is OK when it's aimed at an opponent, but not his daughter?
