Samantha Bee Shuts Down The 'Bigots' And 'Assholes' Hating On Harriet Tubman

Republicans, racists, Donald Trump and Ben Carson were all called out.

Samantha Bee has no time for people hating on Harriet Tubman.

On Monday night, the "Full Frontal" host called out the "assholes" and "bigots" protesting the Treasury Department's decision to feature the heroic abolitionist in place of President Andrew Jackson on the front of the $20 bill.

"Yes! Finally, a black woman making a white man move to the back," Bee said.

Despite multiple media outlets hailing "uniform acclaim" for the decision, Fox News and many Republicans bemoaned the change.

Bee shut down those who dismissed the decision as "rampant political correctness" and "the bigots planning to protest by defacing the bills with racist slurs and nooses."

She also criticized "the assholes complaining that seeing the un-Botoxed face of an American hero, as they stuff their wages into a stripper's G-string, will instantly melt their tiny, thumb-sized boners."

Bee then slammed "Fox & Friends" host Brian Kilmeade -- who called the currency change "an unbelievable sign of disrespect" toward Jackson -- and explained that the seventh president was "a genocidal prick" who was "kind of like Trump with better hair."
