Samantha Bee Lets Her Kids Swear As a Special Treat

By

Samantha Bee is raising her kids to be politically engaged — and high-quality swearers. Bee has three kids — ages 11, 9, and 6 — who don’t watch her TBS show, but they do have an ear for profanities.* “They love salty language,” Bee confesses to Colbert on the Late Show. “I can get them to do anything by just letting them use one piece of salty language in a conversation. That’s their treat.” She acts out an example: “Okay, guys, I really need you to clean your rooms. You can do one swear. If you clean your room diligently, we can all sit together, and you can do one high-quality swear.” Take that, Anthony Scaramucci and your “colorful language.”
