"People need you to know what the f— you’re doing," said Bee, addressing the president's daughter.

Samantha Bee took on Ivanka Trump and her brand of feminism on Wednesday night's Full Frontal, saying "Tonight we honor the only actual high-end project Trump ever completed."

Bee joked that President Donald Trump already "gave the 'Hand of the King' job to her husband, Jared" Kushner, so Ivanka, as reports say, is going to be Trump's eyes and ears.

"Yikes, if Ivanka's supposed to be her dad’s eyes, she’ll be spending a lot of time starting at her own boobies," said Bee. She mocked people who are hoping that Ivanka will be "your secret progressive buddy" in the White House.

"Look, I get it, people are comforted by the thought of a progressive feminist in the White House," said the Full Frontal host. "To which I say, if you wanted that you should have voted for it." A picture of Hillary Clinton appeared on the screen next to her.

News that Ivanka has met twice with Leonardo DiCaprio to talk about climate change was not impressive to Bee. “Meeting with Leo DiCaprio is not a sign that you care about climate change," she said. “It's a sign that you were a teenager in the '90s.”

Ivanka once said that the most important job is being a mother and Bee responded, “You know what another important job is? Working in the White House! Because when you work there, people need you to know what the f— you’re doing when you float your $500 billion childcare plan."
