TBS comedian Samantha Bee has apologized for calling Ivanka Trump a “feckless c***“ during a monologue last night condemning President Trump's immigration policy that separates child immigrants from their parents.

The backlash: Many felt the crude language went too far. TBS deleted the video clip, and White House press secretary Sarah Sanders called the comment “disgusting” in a statement, adding that ”the collective silence by the left and its media allies is appalling.”

The apology:

What she said: Bee was mocking a tweet Ivanka Trump posted of her hugging her daughter. "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***!”

  • This came shortly after Roseanne Barr’s popular show was cancelled after her racist tweet. Many on Twitter noted the contrast of the White House harsh statement on Bee, but silence on Barr.

The pushback:

CNN’s John King called for an apology, saying of the Bee’s comment, "Let me just say, one parent to another – parent of a daughter –  no, no, no!"

Not everyone was offended by Bee's line:

Salesforce rolls the dice on Slack

Salesforce's likely acquisition of workplace messaging service Slack — not yet a done deal but widely anticipated to be announced Tuesday afternoon — represents a big gamble for everyone involved.

For Slack, challenged by competition from Microsoft, the bet is that a deeper-pocketed owner like Salesforce, with wide experience selling into large companies, will help the bottom line.

FBI stats show border cities are among the safest

U.S. communities along the Mexico border are among the safest in America, with some border cities holding crime rates well below the national average, FBI statistics show.

Why it matters: The latest crime data collected by the FBI from 2019 contradicts the narrative by President Trump and others that the U.S.-Mexico border is a "lawless" region suffering from violence and mayhem.

The rise of military space powers

Nations around the world are shoring up their defensive and offensive capabilities in space — for today's wars and tomorrow's.

Why it matters: Using space as a warfighting domain opens up new avenues for technologically advanced nations to dominate their enemies. But it can also make those countries more vulnerable to attack in novel ways.
