Samantha Bee kicked off her show with a passionate monologue on Wednesday’s episode of “Full Frontal” and criticized anyone who helped Donald Trump make it to the White House.
“In the coming days, people will be looking for someone to blame: the pollsters, the strident feminists, the Democratic party, a vengeful god. But once you dust for fingerprints, it’s pretty clear who ruined America: white people. I guess ruining Brooklyn was just a dry run,” the late-night host said to rousing applause. “The Caucasian nation showed up in droves to vote for Trump, so I don’t want to hear a goddamn word about black voter turnout. How many times do we expect black people to build our country for us?”
“White people, this is the worst thing we’ve ever — no, I’m sorry, that’s a very high bar,” Bee said. “But holy shit, and don’t try to distance yourself from the bad apples and say, ‘It’s not my fault, I didn’t vote for him, hashtag not all white people.’ Shush. If Muslims have to take responsibility for every member of their community, so do we.”
Electing the “marmalade hairball” and “vial of weaponized testosterone” sent a message to the U.S.’ allies and enemies all around the world, Bee said. But despite the hate that seems to have consumed our nation, the comedian ended her monologue with a message of hope.
“We still have millions of nasty women who are not going away. And as long as women over 25 are still allowed on television, I’ll be here cheering them on. Although that may only be until late January,” Bee said, later adding, “Let’s get off the floor and get busy. Especially you white women ― we’ve got some karma to work off.”
