Samantha Bee: 'Indiana Hates Mike Pence As Much As Indiana Jones Hates Snakes'

“Congratulations Indiana! You just got rid of one of the worst governors you’ve ever had.”

Samantha Bee is back on air after a three-week hiatus ― and she’s gone full throttle for Donald Trump’s vice-presidential choice, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.

“Indiana voters hate Pence as much as Indiana Jones hates snakes,” the comedian said during her opening monologue on “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” Monday night.

Bee showed footage of people booing Pence being while he threw out the first pitch at an Indiana baseball game, along with negative headlines criticizing him as being out of his league.

“Who is Mike Pence?” Bee asked during the segment. “If you’re a lady Hoosier, you may recognize him as the governor who inspected your reproductive organs every 30 days to make sure you weren’t using them in ways that would make Jesus sad.”

Bee pointed out that Pence signed a law requiring funerals for fetuses after an abortion or miscarriage.

“The law was blocked by a federal judge, but not before Pence had closed down every abortion clinic not equipped with a full complement of funeral bagpipers, you know, for the woman’s safety,” she said. “In that state, having a miscarriage could land you in jail for 20 years, so if you’re driving through Indiana and the contractions start, cross your legs and don’t stop till you’re in Chicago!”

Bee did see a positive in Pence being picked as the presumptive GOP presidential nominee’s Veep.

“Congratulations Indiana! You just got rid of one of the worst governors you’ve ever had,” she said, while offering condolences to the Garden State.

“I’m sorry New Jersey, you were this close,” she said while holding her thumb and forefinger barely apart.
