Bee Whines About Support for ‘Used Hate Salesman’ Trump, Blames NBC

The ever pleasant Samantha Bee spent the first segment of Full Frontal Monday whining about how Hillary Clinton had taken a tumble in the polls, with Donald Trump pulling ahead in key battleground states. But for Bee, it couldn’t possibly be because Clinton had lied to the public about nearly everything, including about being a little sick. “Faced with the prospect of losing the presidency to a two-bit used hate salesman, Clinton dragged herself from her deathbed to deliver a stark warning,” about Trump, Bee opined.

Bee couldn’t stand that the public would reject Clinton’s greatness, so it must be because they are fine with a racist she concluded. “A lot of voters have decided that racism and sexism aren't great but they're not a deal-breaker, kind of like a sandwich with too much mayo,” she spat, “They think they can just scrape off the extra white nonsense.

Desperate for a scapegoat for Trump’s popularity, she lashed out at NBC for daring to give him air time:

Why do so many Americans think playing footsie with fringe hate groups isn't a disqualifier from polite society, much less the presidency? Maybe because that's the message they get from entertainment giants like NBC which gladly nurtured Trump's celebrity through all the years he was running around [talking about birtherism].

She claimed that by letting him on the air, “NBC tacitly condoned a race-baiting demagogue.” Bee slammed NBC for allowing Trump to appear on their comedy shows, and insisted it was, “because ratings matter more than brown people.” “Sure, he's making life palpably dangerous for Muslims and immigrants, but hey! He's good entertainment,” she continued.

It’s rather hypocritical of Bee to denounce a “used hate salesman” being on TV when she peddles in a similar market. For instance, back in June she prayed for members of the National Rifle Association to be stricken with boils.  She also attacked evangelicals by accusing them of backing “good old white nativism” and thinking “black people are icky.” And not to mention everything she has said about her favorite punching bag, Senator Ted Cruz, or as she calls him the, “fish-faced, horseshit salesman.” There seems to be a bit of a pattern here.

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee

SAMANTHA BEE: Faced with the prospect of losing the presidency to a two-bit used hate salesman, Clinton dragged herself from her deathbed to deliver a stark warning.

HILLARY CLINTON: Donald Trump looks at a gold-star family and sees them as Muslims, not patriotic Americans. He looks at women and decides how our looks rate on a scale of one to 10. He is feeding into the worst impulses, the bigotry and bias that lurks in our country.

BEE: To which most of America responded with a full-throated "Whatever." Americans know Trump is a sexist bigot, Hillary! They just don't care. A lot of voters have decided that racism and sexism aren't great but they're not a deal-breaker, kind of like a sandwich with too much mayo. They think they can just scrape off the extra white nonsense. Why do so many Americans think playing footsie with fringe hate groups isn't a disqualifier from polite society, much less the presidency? Maybe because that's the message they get from entertainment giants like NBC which gladly nurtured Trump's celebrity through all the years he was running around saying this.

DONALD TRUMP: The birthers have been so badly labeled, they're afraid to bring it up. Well, I’ve brought it up and I’ve reinvigorated that issue, and I’m very proud to have done it.

BEE: Proud like your kid when he drags you into the bathroom to see his poop. By ignoring that poop, NBC tacitly condoned a race-baiting demagogue.

[NBC’s The More You Know]

To their credit, NBC did sever ties with Trump after he called Mexicans rapists, if by severing ties, you mean inviting him on their flagship comedy programs to show millions of Americans what a fun guy he is.

TRUMP: Why are you hosting Saturday night live? Why?

BEE: I don’t know! [Laughter] I guess because ratings matter more than brown people. Sure, he's making life palpably dangerous for Muslims and immigrants, but hey! He's good entertainment. You know, here’s a thought. When holocaust survivors are telling you, “Hey, this guy gives me Deja Vu, maybe don't invite him up into your house to play with your adorable children.

BEE: Aw, Trump can be a total sweetheart with someone who has no reason to be terrified of him. Huh! I noticed there were no cutaway shots to “The Roots.” I wonder why. Network executives -- [applause] Network execs and a lot their audience can ignore how very dangerous Trump is, because to them, he isn't. They're not gonna be deported. They're not gonna live under a president who thinks of them as a collection of sex toys. They're not racist they just don't mind if other people are, which is just as bad. Anyway, Hillary, next time skip the appeal to basic decency and just tell people trump will raise their taxes.
