Loesch: 'Kim Kardashian Has Had More Effect Politically Than Samantha Bee'
Dana Loesch doesn't have much sympathy for Samantha Bee after the “Full Frontal" host apologized for referring to Ivanka Trump as "a feckless c---" during a segment on immigration policy last week.
"It is a word I have used on the show many times, hoping to reclaim it,” Bee said during her first show since drawing the ire of advertisers, viewers and President Donald Trump. “This time, I used it as an insult. I crossed a line. I regret it and I do apologize."

Loesch, an NRA spokesperson and radio host, said you don't "reclaim" a word by using it in an insulting manner.
"Why in the world out of all words to try to reclaim would you try to reclaim that one?" Loesch wondered on "Fox & Friends" on Thursday.
"She used this word because she wanted to be shocking, she wanted to expand her name recognition. And she did, but she's not recognized in a good way."
She added that Bee's use of the vulgar word only distracted from the immigration issues she intended to shed light on.
Loesch pointed to another woman in the public eye who has used her influence to actually bring about change.
President Trump on Wednesday commuted the life sentence for Alice Marie Johnson after a high-profile campaign for clemency by reality television star Kim Kardashian West.
The phone call I just had with Alice will forever be one of my best memories. Telling her for the first time and hearing her screams while crying together is a moment I will never forget.

"I think it's incredibly interesting that Kim Kardashian has had more effect politically than Samantha Bee has had, and has also had a better impact on the headlines for all the haters out there," Loesch said.
