Stewart's remarks were reported by The Daily Beast, who attended Stewart's appearance at the Clusterfest comedy festival in San Francisco over the weekend. Regarding the political right in the USA, he said, "They don't give a s*** about the word 'c***.'" He also reportedly joked that United States President Donald Trump probably says the "c-word" instead of "please".
The controversy came amid the fallout from ABC's cancellation of "Roseanne" after the show's star, Roseanne Barr, wrote a racist tweet about former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett. Bee used the phrase in question during a segment urging the president's daughter to "do something" about her father's immigration policy that had resulted in the government separating some children living in the country illegally from their parents.

Stewart does have a point in regards to Trump's and his followers' response to Bee's usage of the word "cunt".
Stewart also implied Bee should not have apologized for her language because people will not be able to "make them give up this "We're the real victims" game", adding, "It's a game, it's a strategy, and it's working". "Her disgusting comments and show are not fit for broadcast, and executives at Time Warner and TBS must demonstrate that such explicit profanity about female members of this administration will not be condoned on its network", the White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.
Last week, the president asked on Twitter why the "no talent" Bee wasn't already fired.
