"I don't want to inflict more pain on them". Imagine how the following justification from a right-wing entertainer would have gone over during the Obama years: "I'm so sorry for calling Michelle Obama a c*** because it distracted the easily-distractible, lame-stream media from my important words about our troops!" "We're dealing with different issues here'". Yeah, guess what? When you hurl that word at the daughter of the President of the United States, it's going to crowd out whatever else you're trying to convey. "The problem is that many women have heard that word at the worst moments of their lives. and don't want it reclaimed".
Bee apologized to the women she offended.
She added that Bee's use of the vulgar word only distracted from the immigration issues she meant to shed light on. President Donald Trump suggested she should be fired, and the White House called her remarks "vile and vicious". "But this is the most that anyone has talked about her so I don't feel sorry for her because she got what she wanted".
Bee even apologized for hoggin the news cycle.
Bee, a former contributor on "The Daily Show", reiterated her previous apology on Wednesday, and she noted that the joke had distracted viewers from more pressing issues.
Bee, anxious that she "distracted from more important issues", can rest easy, knowing that those important issues have not been overshadowed entirely by her "potty-mouthed insult". She then called her remark "a potty-mouthed insult". Ted Cruz (R., Texas), one of her frequent conservative targets on the program.
Bee concluded Wednesday night's third apology by giving those who anxious about "the death of civility" this past week something to think about.
"If you are anxious about the death of civility, don't sweat it. Civility is just nice words", Bee concluded. "Maybe we should all worry a little more about the niceness of our actions".
