The Full Frontal host spoke with the Daily Beast about her controversial statements, and even more controversial apology. Back in June 2018 — yes, it feels like a lifetime ago for us too — Bee made headlines for calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless c---,” and was swiftly criticized by talking heads on all sides of the political spectrum. The question of taking it too far is one that Bee takes seriously. In addressing the controversy, she splits a very fine hair: she was not apologizing to Ivanka Trump or the MAGA stans.

She speaks, finally! After remaining silent for days during the raging debate over the separation of migrant children from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border, Ivanka Trump finally decided it time to weigh in — but only after her father, the president, had signed an order to end the policy. And the Internet was pissed. SEE ALSO: We read Ivanka Trump's insufferable new book so you don't have to First, here's Ivanka's tweet. Thank you @POTUS for taking critical action ending family separation at our border. Congress must now act + find a lasting solution that is consistent with our shared values;the same values that so many come here seeking as they endeavor to create a better life for their families — Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) June 20, 2018 And that's when the fire and fury of Twitter rained down on Ivanka, who has tried to make happy families her "thing" in the White House despite failing miserably at it.

You're my hero." https://t.co/wQztUt2VQh — Mrs. Betty Bowers (@BettyBowers) June 20, 2018 Fuck all the way off https://t.co/OWM5kHNcs2 — Timothy Simons (@timothycsimons) June 20, 2018 Thank you for ending the horror that he started? Thank you for proving he was a liar when he said that only Congress could stop this? Thank you for signing an order that won’t stand up in court? What exactly should we thank him for, @IvankaTrump? https://t.co/Nj4lcWknqF — Bill Prady (@billprady) June 20, 2018 this fuckin sycophantic nepotistic clueless administrationhttps://t.co/rQHD5rSu4T — darth™ (@darth) June 20, 2018 Fucking fuck the fuck off, you useless fucking fuck. https://t.co/bj1i5wwWao — Dan Savage (@fakedansavage) June 20, 2018 You realize he was the one who started the family separation, right? And that his administration (OF WHICH YOU ARE A PART) has been planning this from the start? https://t.co/wREDW1B5YB — Geraldine (@everywhereist) June 20, 2018 Since @IvankaTrump suddenly cares about families being torn apart, perhaps she can take a moment from her busy schedule serving as apologist-in-chief to find out what's going to happen to the thousands of children who have already been separated from their parents. https://t.co/RKWf4Wr6Xf — Caroline O. (@RVAwonk) June 20, 2018 And, yes, "feckless" was quite a popular word in case you were wondering (h/t Sam Bee). You're shameless, disgusting, and ... wait for it ... FECKLESS. Resign. https://t.co/afQZuCyHcL — Jamie O'Grady (@JamieOGrady) June 20, 2018 What a feckless thing to say. https://t.co/P1U3CX8pwh — Hemant Mehta (@hemantmehta) June 20, 2018 Say, that's...feckless. https://t.co/W28N4mktMA — Quinn Cummings (@quinncy) June 20, 2018 There you go, being feckless, again. https://t.co/a13gFrI7zW — fakejenrauls (@jenrauls) June 20, 2018 Feckless. https://t.co/Xw8TIx0zkL — hola soy matt y tu (@yantastico) June 20, 2018 To say that Ivanka has failed the same people she claimed she would represent and defend while in the White House is being kind, as is labeling her complicit. With such a publicity stunt as this, it's crystal damn clear how much of a gross opportunist Ivanka is and calling her anything less is too kind.
