After issuing an apologetic statement for calling Ivanka Trump a "feckless c--", Samantha Bee is planning to revisit the controversy Wednesday on her TBS show "Full Frontal", a spokesman confirmed Sunday, according to CNN. According to the former Daily Show host, Donald Trump is just about the last person to have an actual, honest problem with the word, despite what his outraged tweets on the subject might suggest.

Bee said her language was "inappropriate and inexcusable".

On Twitter, Autotrader said Bee's comments were "offensive and unacceptable" and suspended its sponsorship of the show.

"ABC, the same network that canceled "Roseanne", allowed anti-Trump Joy Behar to keep her jobafter saying Christians who believe Jesus speaks to them are mentally ill, which belittles the idea of Christian prayer".

Talking about the same, popular USA television personality Samantha Bee who hosts the show "Full Frontal", has also breathed fire on Ivanka.

The show immediately faced a backlash from some advertisers.

Barr's top-rated ABC show "Roseanne" was canceled after she attacked Valerie Jarrett, a former adviser to President Obama, on Twitter. Take it from me that few in broadcasting are so lucky.

Bee apologized Thursday for the comment.

"Why aren't they firing no talent Samantha Bee for the frightful language used on her low ratings show", the United States' president asked in a new tweet.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders called Bee's language "vile and vicious" and said executives at TBS and corporate parent Time Warner needed to demonstrate that such explicit profanity about female members of the administration would not be condoned. "A total double standard", he wrote.

Following Trump's remarks on Friday, Sal Petruzzi, a TBS spokesman, said there would be no further comment beyond the earlier apologies. President Trump called for Bee to be fired. "If we are OK with that then really, who are we?"

"Those words should not have been aired", TBS said. Despite that dire assessment of the political climate, however, Stewart says he's actually "incredibly optimistic" that the current state of affairs isn't a permanent climate that we'll all just have to sweat through forever.
