Michelle Wolf Defends Samantha Bee's 'Vile And Vicious' Attack On Ivanka

Combined Shape

Michelle Wolf, who gained fame for eschewing good taste at the White House Correspondents Association dinner, supports Samantha Bee in the comedian’s foul-mouthed assessment of Ivanka Trump.

Last month, Bee called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c–t,” which prompted widespread outrage across media and political lines. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders later said Bee’s language was “vile and vicious.”

Wolf, who attacked Sanders during a dinner meant to be a jovial affair, called the president’s daughter “fair game” in the 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 said.

Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, both serve as advisers to President Donald Trump.

Is Ivanka Trump an asset to her father's administration?
Wolf, who stars in the Netflix show “The Break,” added one more shot, referencing Ivanka Trump’s role in her father’s election to the White House.

“She’s one of those worst kind of girls. We’re all fooled by her because Eric and Don Jr. aren’t attractive, and then we pull that, ‘Well, she’s just a little girl! She’s just a pretty little girl.’ And that’s why you shouldn’t underestimate women: They’ll look like a pretty little girl and they’ll steal the children right out from under you,” she said in the interview.

Many stood up for the president’s daughter.

Ivanka Trump, who has faced criticism from the left since the start of her father’s administration because she does not shift his policies in their direction, has tweeted general response to her detractos.

In late May, she posted a series of tweets that read, “If thou workest at what is before thee, following right reason seriously, vigorously, calmly, without allowing anything to distract thee.”.

“If thou holdest to this, expecting nothing, fearing nothing, but satisfied with thy present activity according to nature… thou wilt live happy. And there is no man who will be able to prevent this,” she added. “Focus on what is before you, on what you can control and ignore the trolls! Have a great week!”

Ivanka Trump also directly addressed her critics in an April 2017 interview with CBS.

“I would say not to conflate lack of public denouncement with silence,” she said. “I think there are multiple ways to have your voice heard. In some case it’s through protest and it’s through going on the nightly news and talking about or denouncing every issue in which you disagree with. Other times it is quietly, and directly, and candidly. So where I disagree with my father, he knows it, and I express myself with total candor. Where I agree, I fully lean in and support the agenda and, and hope … that I can be an asset to him and make a positive impact. But I respect the fact that he always listens. It’s how he was in business. It’s how he is as president.”
