During the TBS show “Full Frontal” on Wednesday night, host Samantha Bee slammed the unfeeling tweet Ivanka Trump issued on Memorial Day, which showed a picture of her son before handing him back to his nannies juxtaposed with the fact that Trump’s administration continues to separate children from their parents at the border.
According to Esquire:
‘Then, over the weekend, as Americans were treated to a resurfaced 2014 photograph of kids lying in a wire cage, Ivanka Trump treated America to a photograph of her nuzzling her young (safe, not lost) son captioned “#SundayMorning.” The timing could not have been worse, or the apparent indifference on Ivanka’s part uglier.’
On her show, Bee said:
‘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’spractices, you feckless cunt! He listens to you!’
Actress Sally Field tweeted a message of her own speaking out about Bee’s tweet. Field said:
‘I like Samantha Bee, but she is flat wrong to call Ivanka a cunt. Cunts are powerful, beautiful, nurturing, and honest.’
The White House and other Trump supporters have come out strongly against Bee and her tweet. Perhaps, this has been fueled by Roseanne Barr’s fall from grace after ABC canceled her show due to the racist comment she made on Twitter comparing Obama administration aide Valerie Jarrett to an ape. However, it has been well-known for years that Roseanne Barr has regularly espoused racism.
