While many on the right called for Bee's apology with Donald Trump even calling for "low talent Samantha Bee's [removal] for the disgusting language used on her low ratings show", several people on the left made a decision to side with her. Regarding the political right in the USA, he said, "They don't give a s*** about the word 'c***.'" He also reportedly joked that United States President Donald Trump probably says the "c-word" instead of "please". You could not find a kinder, smarter, more lovely individual than Samantha Bee. Other comedians, such Kathy Griffin, have stepped forward to defend Bee, though the late-night host did offer an apology on the comment that was approved by her show's producers, lawyers, and network censors.

Sanders told The Wrap in a statement: "The language used by Samantha Bee last night is vile and vicious".

Before closing out the Clusterfest comedy festival in San Francisco, California yesterday, former host of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart, attended a Q&A session, where he discussed everything from his newest movie project to the name Samantha Bee called Ivanka Trump on Full Frontal last Wednesday.

But when asked about the controversy surrounding Bee's insult, Stewart said conservatives have a tendency to play the victim when it comes to their portrayal in the media.

Stewart worked with Bee on "The Daily Show" from 2003 to 2015.

"They don't give a s**t about the word 'c**t, '" Stewart said. "It's a game, it's a strategy and it's working". TBS and Bee later publicly apologized for airing the remark. "And so, create your own moral code to live by, but don't be fooled into trying to make concessions that you think will mollify them".

CNN has contacted a representative of Stewart for comment. "[Trump] says that instead of 'please, ' I'm guessing".

As The Daily Beast notes, various reports since the 1980s have suggested Trump has used the derogatory word to describe women.
