  Samantha Bee Reveals What Canadians Think Of America Samantha Bee Reveals What Canadians Think Of AmericaOn Thursday night’s "Jimmy Kimmel Live", Samantha Bee revealed what her Canadian family really thinks of the United States.

Samantha Bee is a non-funny Comedian, nasty partisan polemic, with lousy ratings. She also used sexist and derogatory speech that would have gotten any conservative fired (and did scare away some of her advertisers)

Full Frontal host Samantha Bee has felt the full force of a conservative backlash after using a vulgar epithet to describe Ivanka Trump, but the comedian still has her defenders and got some welcome support from former boss Jon Stewart, a veteran of Republican animus, at Sunday's Clusterfest comedy festival in San Francisco.

According to a report in The Daily Beast, Stewart was asked about the Bee controversy during a Q&A session. The former Daily Show host took exception to White House tactics to get the TBS show canceled arguing that it was all part of a "game" that the political right in the U.S. play. "They don’t give a s*** about the word ‘c***,’" the Daily Beast quoted Stewart saying, alluding to the Trump administration.

  Outrage as Samantha Bee calls Ivanka Trump a 'feckless c---,' says she should 'put on something tight and low cut' “Full Frontal” host Samantha Bee blasted first daughter Ivanka Trump on her monologue Wednesday night calling her a “feckless c---.”“Full Frontal” host Samantha Bee used an extreme vulgarity to slam Ivanka Trump in her monologue on Wednesday over a photograph the first daughter shared on social media, calling her a “feckless c---,“ and some predict the mainstream media won't hold Bee accountable, as they would a conservative comedian.

On Wednesday night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart put 16 years of watching Fox News to use, methodically (and using Vine) laying out his indictment of the political right 's "chronically angry war for ideological purity."

To preview Monday's Full Frontal, Samantha Bee had her old boss Jon Stewart on the show to ask him for some advice. "Guys, I did something unforgivable so do not defend me," she said .

Stewart also joked that Donald Trump, famed for his use of vulgar language in private, probably used the c-word instead of "please".

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. Bee called the picture tone-deaf given the growing scandal involving missing immigrant children and described Ivanka Trump as a "feckless c***." After a heated backlash, Bee apologized for her comments.

Conservatives have been up in arms over Bee, with some trying to make the equivalence with the firing of Roseanne Barr from her revived sitcom for racist tweets and calling out a supposed media double standard. White House Press Sec. Sarah Huckabee Sanders called Bee's comments " vile and vicious" and Full Frontal "not fit for broadcast." President Trump also tweeted that "no talent" Bee should be fired.

Stewart wasn't buying the outrage from the right, implying that Bee shouldn't have apologized, and he suggested it was all calculated and part of the "'we're the real victims' game" conservatives play. "It’s a game, it’s a strategy and it’s working,” he said.


Michelle Wolf Defends Samantha Bee, Hits Out At ‘Useless’ Ivanka Trump: ‘She’s Doing A Terrible Job’ .
Michelle Wolf slammed Ivanka Trump while chatting to The Daily Beast in a new interview. Wolf, 32, insisted, while being asked about the recent Samantha Bee controversy: “I mean, Ivanka is part of the Trump administration. She’s fair game. And she is useless. So I think it’s very fair to point out that she’s doing a terrible job."When the publication mentioned Ivanka was a big reason why her father got elected president, Wolf replied: "Yeah. Aww, she’s one of those worst kind of girls. We’re all fooled by her because Eric and Don Jr. aren’t attractive, and then we pull that, 'Well, she’s just a little girl! She’s just a pretty little girl.
