On TBS, Samantha Bee Told Trump Fans 'Protesters Are Not Your Enemy'... as Berkeley Rioted

There are dangers to pre-taping current-events shows, and that includes current-events "comedy" shows. On Wednesday night, TBS Full Frontal hostess Samantha Bee insisted to Trump supporters that "protesters are not your enemy" at about the same time that "protesters" in Berkeley, California were breaking windows and starting fires to prevent Trump supporter Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking on campus.

First, Bee offered the mandatory pop-culture reference to mock Trump as a young girl: "Remember on Gilmore Girls when Paris Geller staffed the school newspapers with  her most loyal  friends, with no regard for talent level?  It’s like that, but with the Leader of the Free World, and nukes.”

Then at the end, she offered the insincere part about protesters not being the enemy of Trump backers:

BEE: Liberal snowflakes are multitaskers. They can make a nuisance of themselves over white jobs and brown refugees! So please Trump supporters, stop screen-tweeting that 'liberals are choosing foreigners over Americans.' Protesters are not your enemy. I promise if our tantrum-prone tyrant ever locks you out of America, they will march for you too. Maybe reluctantly, but they will do it. And a lot of American Muslims will too.
