More on Sam Bee and the C. (Scroll down for my Daily Kos story from yesterday)
Sam Bee used the word and we all know what happened short-term, really instantly. However, I see that longer term it may turn out to have been an unplanned vitory for progressive forces. Not only has it opened discussion about when the most repellant misogynist vulargity may be descriptive and appropriate, but it may increase Sam Bee's ratings. She could have called her, like Michelle Wolf did regarding Sarah Sanders, as the Aunt Lydia of the Trump White House, but then only people familiar with Handmaids Tale. would have understood it.
She could have called her Irma Grese – The Hyena of Auschwitz - but that would have sent most everyone to Wikpedia.
This HUFFPOST top of the page story isn't as interesting as what they did with the image.

Sam Bee: Ivanka's not a feckless c--t, Is she a synthetic sycophantic sociopath. Comments? on Daily Kos
The c-word ranks among all the other obscenities and euphemisms for human genitalia as far and away the most insulting and demeaning.
The c-word is the most egregious anti-woman insult. The connotation is the person one is attacking has the some of the worst, often stereotypical, characteristics of certain women. It suggests that all there is to being a woman is her having a vagina. When someone calls a man a prick it means he is a jerk and nobody is saying all there is to him is his having a penis.
The description "feckless cunt" does not describe Ivanka. While you could make a case for the later, that word is a poor choice. phase is catchy, however feckless means ineffective, incompetent, futile, lazy, indifferent, or having no sense of responsibility. The last two definitions could be applied to Ivanka if you want to stretch the way feckless is generally used. (Below, From Dictionary.com)
If ye miss that, ye must be as feckless at the sailoring as I have found ye at the fighting.Robert Louis Stevenson
My love is so feckless, that it is a shame to offer it to Him!Samuel Rutherford
Madam, let others take their silly, feckless heaven in this life.Samuel Rutherford
