Michelle Wolf, the host of a new Netflix series whose performance at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner caused massive controversy this spring, has now come to the defense Samantha Bee’s remarks about Ivanka Trump in a new interview.
Wolf, whose own biting remarks about White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders led to a days-long controversy, deemed Ivanka Trump “useless” and “fair game” during her interview with the daily beast.
“I mean, Ivanka is part of the Trump administration. She’s fair game. And she is useless. So I think it’s very fair to point out that she’s doing a terrible job,” Wolf suggested in the interview.
Earlier this month, Bee was attacked for calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless c—” during on her show.
Bee later apologized for the remark and for distracting the media from “more important issues.”
“I should have known that a potty-mouth insult would be inherently more interesting to them [news media] than juvenile immigration policy,” she continued. “I would do anything to help those kids. I hate that this distracted from them. So to them, I am also sorry.”
