Bee on Wednesday called the First Daughter and Senior Advisor to the President Ivanka Trump a "feckless c***." She apologized Thursday afternoon.
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. It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.

“The language used by Samantha Bee last night is vile and vicious. The collective silence by the left and its media allies is appalling,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders told TheWrap.
“Her disgusting comments and show are not fit for broadcast, and executives at Time Warner and TBS must demonstrate that such explicit profanity about female members of this administration will not be condoned on its network,” Huckabee Sanders added.
President Trump on Wednesday did manage to try to frame himself as a victim of vicious attacks, just like Valerie Jarrett. He asked ABC for an apology. On Thursday, he demanded one.
TBS also apologized, saying those remarks should not have been allowed to air.
When asked why Trump would not denounce Roseanne Barr's vile attacks, the White House press secretary said President Trump is "the president of all Americans."
