TVSamantha Bee Has the Best Donald Trump Takedown of the Week (So Far)
Bee is just the latest late-night host to bring her A-game in the wake of the first presidential debate.
Unlike some of her contemporaries, Samantha Bee chose not to do a live episode of her show following the first presidential debate on Monday. Instead, Bee waited to do a special episode of Full Frontal on Wednesday, and the result is a thorough takedown of the sexism Trump leveled at Hillary Clinton (among other women) during their debate. Bee's always had the political chops to be a welcome member of the EVISCERATION sphere, but her post-debate rant is particularly enjoyable: Not only does she go after Trump for his comments on Alicia Machado, Bee also skewers Lester Holt for his invisible moderator performance and Clinton for her hemming and hawing on racial inequality.
The Machado segment is certainly the star of the bit, as it culminates with Bee telling Trump he now has a problem with every woman who's been called fat. "Which is all of us," Bee explains as a photo of every woman on her staff flicking off the camera pops on screen.
In between the more important parts of her monologue, though, Bee manages to seamlessly mix in her trademark humor, my personal favorite example being her description of Clinton's infamous debate shimmy: "That is the tits-out party-girl shimmy most moms reserve for an especially good wine meme." Tits-out party girl! You won't find that kind of commentary anywhere else.
