"Bee isn’t new to this," Erin Gloria Ryan says of the Full Frontal host. "She should have known that 'c*nt' is a political comedy A-bomb, that performative pearl-clutching over the word would eclipse the larger point she was trying to make (about immigration). Which is a shame, because she was making a worthwhile point." Ryan adds: "Bee should have known better. Everybody who can’t resist the cheap shot should know better. When Jimmy Kimmel took a (cheap) shot at Melania Trump’s accent and made a mildly homophobic joke about Sean Hannity’s relationship with Donald Trump, Hannity was able to swoop in and play moral. Kimmel apologized, and the salient point that Kimmel was originally trying to make about Hannity—that he was so deferential to President Trump that he functioned like a media organ of the executive branch—was lost." ALSO: Why Bee's transgression is not nearly as egregious, offensive, or cruel as what Roseanne Barr did.
