Dexter noted that the biggest problem with's Bee's insult "is that the comedian undercut her own message" that Ivanka Trump "should be held accountable for her failure to influence her father to end his cruel immigration policies, which include separating immigrant parents from children".

The backlash prompted President Trump to weigh in and resulted in advertisers suspending campaigns associated with Bee's late-night show.

There's certainly a double standard here, especially when one considers Roseanne Barr was sacked promptly last Wednesday for a tweet. Last week, Samantha Bee spoke about Ivanka Trump on her late night show, and had some less than flattering remarks.

But what you should not do is use your disagreement with government policy to slander a loving young mother who has the audacity to show how much she loves her child on social media.

But after this week's show, I won't be watching her ever again. Sometimes I should probably have a filter. Maybe I just didn't get the call? Trump is now a senior White House adviser, and only a few days ago she posted a photo hugging her son while her father's administration decided immigrant families would be split apart. That's certainly one of the biggest questions that we had entering this week's edition of Real Time with Bill Maher. This was a unusual show to watch from that vantage point, since Maher was a commentator who only occasionally dabbled into his own history in said controversy. "But in a comedy way". "OK, and sometimes you also have to apologize".

TBS, the network that airs Full Frontal, has not commented publicly about Bee's remarks.

Bee issued a statement Thursday that says her language was "inappropriate and inexcusable". And how are we expected to take any of these publications seriously if they gleefully repost something like this at the same time they (rightfully) condemn @therealroseanne?

On Twitter, announced, "Thank you to those who reached out regarding our sponsorship of Full Frontal. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it".

State Farm told CNN Money that it asked TBS to suspend its advertising in the program and will review any future placements. (He also called Clinton a "b-ch" and "two-bit whore for Fidel Castro.") Nugent also called former president Barack Obama a "sub-human mongrel" and said Obama could "suck on my machine gun". She praised the Emmy-winning host for being cathartic and censured those comparing her situation to that of Barr.

Bee had gone after Trump for failing to take action to stop the separation of undocumented families.
