Hosted by Samatha Bee, Full Frontal airs from 10:30 PM to 11:00 PM Eastern every Wednesday night on TBS.
In May 2018, Samantha Bee was forced to apologize for a disgusting attack on Ivanka Trump, but it wasn’t the first time she had to apologize for an offensive or stupid remark. In 2017, she attacked a CPAC attendee for having “Nazi hair.” Bee later apologized to the attendee, Kyle Coddington, because it turned out he had brain cancer.
Bee also had to backtrack from a November 2017 segment where she interviewed “superhero” and now-disgraced Democratic New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. Bee looked to Schneiderman as someone who could lead America “out of the darkness” ushered in by President Donald Trump. On May 7, 2018, Schneiderman was accused of sexually abusing four women. Bee and her staff apologized for the fawning segment the next day.
Of course there are many, many other segments and statements that Bee could apologize for, but hasn’t. Also on the show, Bee has compared ICE agents to Nazis, used vulgar language about Republicans like House Speaker Paul Ryan and Texas Senator Ted Cruz and even prayed to God to hit the NRA with a “a plague of boils.”
