Samantha Bee’s “Full Frontal” struggling to regain advertisers after vile attack on Ivanka Trump

Imagine my distress.

From Fox News: A new report shows Samantha Bee’s late night show “Full Frontal” hasn’t been able to regain its advertisers after the host called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c—” on her show in May.

The liberal comedian came under fire when she used an extreme vulgarity to slam Ivanka Trump in her monologue on May 30 over a photograph the first daughter shared on social media.

“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—. He listens to you,” Bee said.

Bee apologized on a June 6 episode, but the damage was done as her advertisers dropped her.

Before the vulgar remark, Bee’s TBS show had 19 advertisers but when she apologized on the June 6 episode, she was down to a mere six and has been unable to gain them back weeks later, a new Newsbusters report shows.

In her June 6 opening monologue, Bee told viewers that her insult directed at the first daughter “crossed a line.”

“It is a word I have used on the show many times, hoping to reclaim it,” Bee said. “This time, I used it as an insult. I crossed a line. I regret it and I do apologize.”

Her on-air apology came after she tweeted she was sorry.

Both Bee and TBS issued apologies the following day, with the network tweeting the “vile” comment was “our mistake too, and we regret it.”

  1. It would be beneficial and Very Effective if all the Sponsors who bailed on her Vulgarity Show were listed here so that Us Patriots can call and contact them with “Thanks.”
    An effective tactic used by the Leftist Liberal = can also be effective for the Rightous Right..!!

  2. The Left, who call themselves feminists and champions of women, have been doing this for years to conservative women:

  3. TBS and every sponsor that didn’t leave her and TBS should be boycotted. The writers & editors who allowed the script should be fired and blacklisted. In fact, deport them to Mexico… somewhere squalid.

    After a certain age, when someone tells the world that they are vile and vulgar, they should be believed. To think that someone has used poor judgment is to be reserved for the unworldly high school or college student.

    A television program or personality is the reflection of the advertiser. If I were an advertiser, my money would have stopped flowing immediately.

  5. What wonderful news. At least the majority of her advertisers have some decency and aren’t buying her and the network’s “so sorry” excuse. It would be wonderful if this vile show is canceled as a result and Bee flies back to her oh-so-wacky pc native country, once-proud Canada.

  6. I spent most of my life in a foundry, and so talked with a lot of rough guys, and try as I might, at times my language sometimes leaked out to the worldly side of speaking. I tried to maintain a Christian tone, but when you get metal poured down you glove, or something like that, it can make you use some bad language that you hear all day from most others.
    But I have never used the C word like this worthless woman did. I married my wife, when she was the traffic co ordinator, and I was the shipping clerk. Before we started dating, she got angry one time, and was short with me on the phone. She later apologized, saying she was sorry for being a B—-. I told her that I didn’t accept her apology, because I don’t believe that any woman should be called that name. A woman should always be treated with the same respect that you would give to your mother. Now that doesn’t mean that you must date every woman no matter her temperament. But if you are a man, you must respect every woman, indeed, every person, but especially women. I believe that God has a special place in His heart for women, in the way that He instructed Adam to protect Eve and in the many places in Scripture we are told to give our wives a place of honor, etc.
    So when I read about Samantha Bee saying what she did about Ivanka Trump, I was actually shocked. No matter which political side one is on, they should never call a woman that, yet alone for simply publishing a picture of themselves holding their child. I think that some of these leftists are slightly insane, to do the things they do, and think it is acceptable. Robert DeNiro comes to mind as well. At one time, I thought he was a decent actor, but now, I wouldn’t pay a nickel to see one of his movies. I am not a lover of Donald Trump, but I do support many of the things he is doing for our country. And I don’t think he did this presidential thing for himself. He is a billionaire, he could be playing golf or jetting around the world. But instead, he chose to become president, and make positive changes. I think that involves some sacrifices on his part. Time will tell if his presidency will be a success, but you can bet that Hillary would not have set down with the North Koreans and worked out a deal to have them agree to disarm their nuclear weapons.

  7. Continue to pray and speak out and write for the turning all of our popular culture into something greatly pleasing to God.

  9. I think she already OWNS that word-she’s been one for as long as I can remember. BTW-I know this is a minor point,but,to be a Comedienne,wouldn’t she have to be FUNNY?

  10. I see something of T.S. Eliot’s point here: “This is the way the world ends/Not with a bang, but with a whimper….”
    It seems like our culture, having been in the toilet for some 30 years or more here, has reached a level of stagnancy so uneventful that the most grotesque vulgarity no longer shocks or surprises. Yes, it is mental illness on the demographic level, but it is also a sort of ACEDIA, a spiritual torpor and vapidity that may well take the death of the current generation and the birth of the next to cure. Why listen to people who just aren’t funny, or clever or intelligent? I do my best to insulate myself from this culture, and I hope the millenials are the last stupid generation we have to endure. (As for myself, it has gotten to the point where I cannot tolerate the sound of the human voice anymore, for the most part: I get sick and tired of hearing stupid people drone on and on, when I’m Ubering. NO, I DON’T have an aux cord!)

  11. Reblogged this on On the Patio and commented:

    Nice! Reality and consequences. And , of course, the inevitable Boomerang Effect triggers an apolgy tour! Excellent! You can still hear the sound of the toilet flushing. Very similar to the sound after the Cathy Griffin incident. Absolutely no learning curve here.

  12. No one should ever use that c-word, for any purpose, regardless of provocation.
    And, I hasten to add, it takes one to know one.
