Lame. Nothing to apologize for.
 
2018-05-31 2:23:53 PM  
Well, that really grabbed someone by the pussy!
 
2018-05-31 2:24:05 PM  
Not sure why she apologized, the current Administration will never apologize for anything...

What a non-apology.

"I used an expletive on my show.  I should not have done that."

Not, "the contents of my message were wrong."

But, "the way I expressed my message was wrong."

Perhaps that has something to do with the message being absolutely right.

So she met them on their level?

Wut?

What she say? Certainly not "feckless"...

I see nothing wrong with what she said.   *shrugs*    I don't think she should have apologized, but I get the impression TBS told her to do so, or else.

Well, flaunting the love of your children as you fight to have families separated for no good reason makes her a c*nt in my book.

"the way I expressed my message was wrong."

That's what she meant. Why would she lie in her apology?
 
2018-05-31 2:26:20 PM  
...but why?
 
2018-05-31 2:26:29 PM  
Cue up the conservative rage machine. I'm certain the Trump army is already demanding she have her show canceled, as retribution for poor, innocent, ambien fueled Roseanne. Because the two incidents are exactly alike.

When will Trump apologize for ... anything.  Roughly when hell freezes over.  At least Samantha Bee showed a sliver of class we could never expect out of anyone named Trump.
 
2018-05-31 2:26:39 PM  
I bet she votes for Trump in the next election, without him she wouldn't have much of a show

Because she has nothing to apologize for, but the disingenuous assholes on the right feigning outrage demand it.
 
2018-05-31 2:28:10 PM  
I think she meant to say farkless.
 
2018-05-31 2:28:12 PM  
"I wanted originally to make a joke about Ivanka, The Knights of Columbus, and an albino sloth but Roseanne beat me to it"
 
2018-05-31 2:28:17 PM  
Feckless traitor.

Democrats need to grow a pair and stop playing the "When they go low, we go high" game.  Fark that b.s.

This is just farking stupid.  Fake conservative outrage wins again, and the rest of us look like farking fools.

Well, it's not like she's on HBO...As much as I like her and her show, she needs to be careful about her language...and why resort to that kind of thing anyway.

Were the contents of her message wrong? I'd say no.
 
2018-05-31 2:29:34 PM  
Her assessment is dead on, but I can see why the outrage from the Right.  First, they don't think Ivanka is a coont. Second, that kind of language HAS to be outside a morality clause.
 
2018-05-31 2:29:55 PM  
Hey, come on!

I barely had time to post a John McCain calls Cindy a coont reference in the other thread  and she's already apologized???

Come on, if the merkin fits...

To make a point, and get attention while doing so.

I agree in spirit but this was a matter of "apologize or you're fired". There is an argument for compromise to be made in that context I think.

The network is garbage for establishing that ultimatum though.
 
2018-05-31 2:30:56 PM  
She'll be off the air by dinner.

Unfortunately.

don't be a dumb dumb, you know it was purposeful because the message was correct.
 
2018-05-31 2:31:26 PM  
Canadians really do say sorry too much. Stereotype confirmed. She just got US citizenship recently, she's got to work on that US-ian jerk swagger.
 
2018-05-31 2:31:38 PM  
Feckless =f**kles?

So much freedom of speech OR so much for the freedom of speech which ever gets you the hardest
 
2018-05-31 2:31:40 PM  

EyeballKid: Perhaps that has something to do with the message being absolutely right.


Not exactly. Samantha Bee called her a "Feckless Coont". I would have gone with "Feckless coont who helps her racist perverted dad (who has such a sexual desire for her that he pays hundreds of thousands of dollars to have unprotected sex with porn stars that resemble her) run a full scale kleptocracy out of the white house and are selling out our country to foreign money".

Now THAT is absolutely right.

Calling terrible people terrible names isn't an offensive act. It's just an observation.

I thought women could use that word to describe other women? Sort of like blacks can use the N-word.
 
2018-05-31 2:32:37 PM  
What's the opposite of feckless? You never hear someone described as feckful or having a lot of feck.
 
2018-05-31 2:32:41 PM  
I was hoping her reply would be something closer to this,

Cue conservatives responding with "But if you use that standard you have to concede Valerie Jarrett really does look like a monkey har-har."

Nah, she is doing political commentary on a show with a comedy bent, not shiatting racist shiat on twitter at 2am and blaming drugs.
These fark Your Feelings pussies are really butt humping this false equivalence for all they can.
YEAH, WHATABOUT SAM BEE EH COMRADE?

And probably picked up by HBO so they can put her back-to-back with John Oliver.

"Of course, the phrase I meant to use was 'irredeemably awful bag of fetid goat anuses.'"

The lesson here is to insult them using words that they don't understand.

If it was a rhyme, she would be fine. Bonkers Ivankers, Ivanka the Wanka, No Chutzpah Ivanka. Seems to work for her father; you know, the Leader of the free world...part of North America.
