SHS statement sounds like it was penned by Trump himself. If only they showed that level of concern when children get gunned down at school. :/

Sam Bee’s show has been ****y itself. I think her commentary is too acidic and confrontational. It goes beyond what I see on The Daily Show or Bill Maher. There are some good bits here and there. But that’s about it.

I was surprised by that as well. Late night shows can throw out some swears now but I didn't think c--- was included. At least, not in this country/

I just double checked the recording my DVR did of the first airing of the show and it WAS bleeped out.

That being said, I'm pretty sure that it is not required to censor language on "cable" stations now. AHS Cult used the C word multiple time as well as the F word.

So apparently you can say whatever you want in the name of "comedy"??????????? As long as it is directed at the POTUS and his family.

Well, selected POTUSes and family. Had she said it about Chelsea Clinton or the Obama daughters you would have never seen her again on TV. But conservatives and Trump are fair game. Full Hypocrisy.

Give it a rest. Our current president accused his predecessor of lying about his birth certificate. Where was your moral outrage then?

Also those examples were children at the time, or at least under age. Ivanka is a grown woman. Now if it was Barron, then I'd say you'd have an appropriate comparison.

She also "works" for his administration so she is fair game. Plus the language that Samantha Bee used just proves that she is qualified to be Trump's successor as President.

I don't get the offensiveness of that particular word but it seemed unnecessary. The rest of the comment was pretty funny.

There’s no comparison between what Trump says or what Roseanne tweeted but I was surprised Sam used the C-word. It was a bad decision and I’m glad she apologized. Although she was absolutely right about Ivanka.

There's no way she didn't say it on purpose, full well knowing she would just make an apology the next day. Her show isn't live like Bill Maher. She did it to prove a point. How can Roseanne/Trump supporters get on her case without being outed as complete hypocrites?
Totally planned. Good for her

That was really unfair of her to call out Ivanka like that.

That entire family is a bunch of ****s.

I'm not sure I believe that. She's said much worse about other people. I think they just all happen to be male, and we Americans get our panties into a tight bunch for the c-word for some reason. Also, the right is looking for any easy whataboutism right now to deflect from Roseanne. I'm also sure she didn't want to make the apology that has obviously been forced on her by the network.

The takeaway from this is most here seem to think it is OK to call some one a C@@t and are glad she did it. DVDtalk never fails to amaze. Nice.

Give it a rest. She crossed a line, she apologized for it. You are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.

I just don't understand the obsession with that word. It's interchangable with Dick or Asshole and is used as such abroad, but for some reason we're obsessed with it being substantially worse here. Growing up it wasn't used much but it never stood out.

It was unnecessary, but I don't get the hoopla.
