It has been nothing but trouble for TV host Samantha Bee ever since she called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c---” on her TBS show “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee.”
Now the late-night TV host is claiming that she is the one who was hurt by her Ivanka Trump slur.
“It affected me a lot. I’ve been thinking a lot about it,” Bee told the Hollywood Reporter. “We had a scheduled vacation around July 4, and it was a time of reflection.”
“I do think that being a part of the outrage machine is an inevitability now,” she continued. “That’s a reality everyone has to grapple with, not just me.”
“The level of ferocity is something I hadn’t quite experienced up to that point, but I assume I’ll go through it again. Maybe I’ll be better prepared next time. I think we handled it well, but it was a pretty steep learning curve.”
Samanta Bee’s vulgar statement was regarding a social media post by Ivanka Trump of her and her son.

“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 c--t,” said Bee.
Samantha Bee later apologized on Twitter for her comments she made on her show.
“I would like to sincerely apologize to Ivanka Trump and to my viewers for using an expletive on my show to describe her last night,” said Bee on Twitter. “It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.”
On her next show that aired the following week, Bee offered a further apology.
“It is a word I have used on the show many times hoping to reclaim it. This time, I used it as an insult,” she said. “I crossed the line, I regret it, and I do apologize for that.”
“I never intended it to hurt anyone, except Ted Cruz,” Bee joked.
