Samantha Bee gets an F for calling Ivanka Trump a cunt in the context of her show (save that for a private conversation). It pushes the envelope offensiveness-wise, plus it’s kind of stupid to call the President’s daughter a cunt the day after the Roseanne Barr Planet of the Apes fiasco. It just creates whataboutism for the Trumpskites. However, she gets an A for her use of the word “feckless,” defined as “lacking initiative or strength of character.” Dictionary gives “feckless mama’s boy” as an example of use of the word, indicating Samantha was right on with her use of this word. So “feckless cunt” is an F plus an A, which averages out to a C.
