Jon Stewart Does Not Buy Trump's Samantha Bee Criticism

Bee was criticized by some for a segment about President Donald Trump's immigration policy in which she referred to Ivanka as a "feckless c-", a crude euphemism for a female body part.

Bee, a former Daily Show correspondent, got into hot water last week after she lambasted Ivanka Trump for posting a picture on social media that showed the First Daughter holding her child. TBS and Bee later publicly apologized for airing the remark. The implication or - er - joke was that the president's daughter didn't care about the Mexican children being separated from their parents at the USA border.

In many ways, Jon Stewart appears to be right. Arguing that apologizing is akin to falling in a trap concocted by the political right to moral police the left, Stewart told The Daily Beast that the contours of comedic or political discourse can not be a prerogative of one group of people.

"Her executive producer, who was the one who allowed this joke to move forward and celebrated on Twitter [should also be suspended], and anyone on the staff who said that this was something that should go forward and put their stamp of approval on it", she added. "He said, "[Conservatives] don't give a s**t about the word "c**t".

Alec Baldwin: I'd '1,000 percent' win if I ran against Trump
Alas, he has no plans to dive into the presidential race. "If I ran, I would win", Baldwin said Monday on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show .

Your thoughts on Stewart's reaction to the controversy? "There isn't. And so, create your own moral code to live by, but don't be fooled into trying to make concessions that you think will mollify them".

On Thursday, Kelly likened Bee's comment to Roseanne Barr's racist tweet about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, tweeting: "This is disgusting".

"They don't give a sh** about the word 'c***,'" Stewart said of the Trump administration.

"You know, Ivanka, that's a lovely 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 c*nt", Bee said.
