Liberal TV show host Samantha Bee is under fire for calling Ivanka Trump a "feckless c**t" and crudely telling the first daughter that she should "put on something tight and low-cut" to help sway her father's policies.
Now the White House is calling for TBS — the network that hosts Bee's show, "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" — to rein in its liberal mouthpiece with some discipline.
What did Bee say?
During her Wednesday monologue, Bee used vulgarities in reference to the president's daughter and made lurid suggestions that the first daughter should use her sexuality to persuade her father, President Donald Trump, over immigration policies.
"Ivanka Trump, who works at the White House, chose to post the second most oblivious tweet we’ve seen this week," Bee said, noting Roseanne Barr's controversial tweet was in first place.
Ivanka shared a tweet featuring herself and her 2-year-old son, who she cuddled closely.
Ivanka captioned the picture, "My [heart]! #SundayMorning."

The photo was widely panned by celebrities, who suggested the photo was tone-deaf because Ivanka shared it amid reports that the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement reportedly lost track of about 1,500 immigrant children during the final three months of 2017.
In response to the photo, Bee said, "You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child, but let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices you feckless c**t!"
"He listens to you!" Bee shrilled. "Put on something tight and low cut and tell your father to f***ing stop it. Tell him it was an Obama thing and see how it goes."

What's the White House saying now?
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is calling on TBS to discipline Bee over her "disgusting" and "vile and vicious."
In a statement to The Wrap, Sanders said:
The language used by Samantha Bee last night is vile and vicious. The collective silence by the left and its media allies is appalling. Her disgusting comments and show are not fit for broadcast, and executives at Time Warner and TBS must demonstrate that such explicit profanity about female members of this administration will not be condoned on its network.
TBS has yet to acknowledge the blowback Bee's remarks have caused.
