‘A FECKLESS C–T’: Samantha Bee, TBS under fire for vile attack on Ivanka Trump

Washington, D.C. — Conservatives nationwide are calling foul over a verbal attack launched upon First Daughter Ivanka Trump by TBS host Samantha Bee.

The “Full Frontal” host, referencing a seemingly innocent photo posted by Ivanka Trump of she and her toddler son, unleashed on President Trump’s eldest daughter during her Wednesday night show, calling the young mom a “feckless cunt”.

The comments drew outrage and caused network switchboards at TBS to light up with angry callers.

Bee, responding to network pressure, issued a statement via Twitter in which she sheepishly apologized.

“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,” Bee said. “It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.”

TBS also issued statement following Bee’s apology, but did not say what, if any, action the network would take upon its star.

“Samantha Bee has taken the right action in apologizing for the vile and inappropriate language she used about Ivanka Trump last night,” the statement read. “Those words should not have been aired. It was our mistake too, and we regret it.”

The controversial comments follow those by former ABC star Roseanne Barr earlier in the week in which Barr compared former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett to a monkey.

ABC swiftly fired Barr and fellow members of her top-rated “Roseanne” cast, announcing that the show would not be renewed for a second season.



‘YOU HAVE MADE HISTORY’: US embassy opens in Jerusalem, recognizing holy city as ‘true capital’ of Israel

Jerusalem, — The Trump administration officially opened a new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem on Monday, recognizing the holy city as the “true capital of Israel.”

“For many years, we have failed to acknowledge the obvious, plain reality that the [Israeli] capital is Jerusalem. At my direction, the United States finally and officially recognized Jerusalem as the true capital of Israel,” Trump said in a video address just moments before daughter his daughter Ivanka officially unveiled the embassy.

“The United States will always be a great friend of Israel and a partner in the cause of peace,” Trump added. “We extend a hand in friendship to Israel, the Palestinians and to all of their neighbors. May there be peace.”

Shortly after the unveiling of the facility, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed how “deeply grateful” he and the Israeli people are to President Trump and the people of the United States who supported the decision to place the facility within Jerusalem city limits.

“President Trump, by recognizing history, you have made history,” Netanyahu said, taking a moment to publicly recall a moment from his childhood when he was warned not to run too close to the Jerusalem border. “My mother said you can’t go any farther, that was near the border. There was sniper fire. That was then—this is now. Today the embassy of the most powerful nation on earth, our greatest ally, the United States of America, today the United States Embassy opened here. What a difference.”

Netanyahu went on to declare Monday a “great day for Israel,” and for the U.S.-Israel bond.

“We are in Jerusalem and we are here to stay,” Netanyahu said.

As America and Israel celebrated, however, clashes near the border with protestors who were opposed to the relocation left dozens of Palestinians dead and hundreds wounded.

Palestinian officials have criticized the Trump administration for its decision to move the embassy to Jerusalem. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas announced he has cut ties with the U.S., declaring it no longer fit and too one-sided to mediate peace between Israel and Palestine.

The Trump has rebuffed Palestinian’s criticism, saying that the embassy move should be viewed as a first step toward brokering peace.


BATTLE ON THE HOME FRONT: President caught in war of words between Melania Trump and ex wife Ivana

WASHINGTON, D.C.– First lady Melania Trump came out swinging on Monday over comments by President Trump’s ex-wife Ivana in which she refers to herself as the true “first lady”.

In an interview with “Good Morning America” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SuegUiqqDg) to promote her new book “Raising Trump,” Ivana Trump said she has direct access to the president whenever she wants it and speaks to her ex husband roughly “every 14 days”.

“I have the direct number to White House, but I [don’t] really want to call him there because Melania is there,” she said. “I don’t want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that because I’m basically first Trump wife.”

Smiling into the camera, she added: “I’m first lady, okay?”

But would Ivana Trump trade places with Melania if she could? No, she claims. In fact, she says she feels “sorry” for the current Mrs. Trump.

“I think for her to be in Washington must be terrible,” Ivana Trump said of Melania. “It’s better her than me. I would hate Washington.”

The comments did not sit well with the current Mrs. Donald Trump who was quick to issue a scathing statement in response to her husband’s ex. In a release issued through her communications director Stephanie Grisham (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/10/09/melania-trump-slams-ivana-for-calling-herself-first-lady.html), Melania Trump said the president’s former missus is simply a disgruntled ex who is desperate for attention and that she was simply using her former status to sell books.

“This is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise,” the statement reads.

“Mrs. Trump has made the White House a home for Barron and the President. She loves living in Washington, D.C. and is honored by her role as First Lady of the United States,” the statement continued. “She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books.”

Ivana Trump was married to Donald Trump from 1977 to 1992. She is the mother of the president’s oldest 3 children, Eric, Ivanka and Donald Trump, Jr.



Sales for Ivanka Trump’s clothing and shoe wear line are skyrocketing according to the latest numbers, despite for calls by liberal organizations to boycott the luxury brand.

Trump, the daughter of president Donald Trump, experienced a slump in public relations last month after high end retailers such as Nordstrom announced plans to pull the products from it’s stores and catalogs.

The success by the left to quell Trump’s sales was short lived, however, as conservative shoppers rushed to Trump’s defense.

“Since the beginning of February, they were some of the best performing weeks in the history of the brand,” Abigail Klem, president of Ivanka Trump HQ told Refinery29.com (http://www.refinery29.com/2017/03/143713/ivanka-trump-brand-reputation-sales-trump-inauguration). “For several different retailers Ivanka Trump was a top performer online, and in some of the categories it was the [brand’s] best performance ever.”

“We actually feel super optimistic because, I think, one, a lot of people support Ivanka, even across both political parties,” said Klem. “And then I think a lot of other people feel like, ‘Oh, I didn’t know Ivanka had a shoe line.’ ‘Oh, I didn’t know she had a handbag line.’ And they’re buying it.”

Lyst, an agency which monitors purchasing data from retailers world wide, reports that from January to February, Ivanka Trump sales increased a massive 346 percent.

The move to boycott the Ivanka Trump brand was part of a campaign known as “Grab Your Wallet,” which called for shoppers to boycott retailers that carried Ivanka Trump or Donald Trump merchandise. The attempt, said Lyst’s U.S. public relations director Sarah Tanner to Fox News, did little to hurt Trump’s brand (http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2017/03/08/ivanka-trumps-fashion-sales-are-skyrocketing-says-company-president.html).

“With that, there was also another movement to support the brand as well that we’re seeing,” she said. “That’s definitely what we’re seeing here.”
