In her first new episode of 2021 – and the first since the Trump-led insurgency last week on the U.S. Capitol – Samantha Bee had a lot to get rid of her chest.
“It was the ugliest scene that has occurred on the Senate floor since … about an hour before that”, Full frontal the host said, passing to a photo of Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), whom she identified, along with Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO), as being particularly “accomplice” for inspiring the attack .
“Equally despicable, Trump’s greatest catalysts are just breaking with the president to try and save their careers,” Bee added, pointing to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC ), who ultimately voted against. the president the day after the riot.
“You don’t hate to end up this way, Lindsey Graham, you’ve been complicit in this evil for years!” she said. “And now are you disappointed with that?” Kiss my ass! The only reason you hate that it ended up this way is because you couldn’t watch the Capitol Riots from afar while drinking a mint julep.
Worse yet, Bee continued, is that just as quickly as Graham declared “count me,” he “counted himself again,” defending Trump against calls for impeachment and 25th Amendment impeachment. “No one in the Republican Party suddenly took notice,” she said. “They’re doing the bare minimum at the last minute to save their own skins.”
And no one has “scored more sanctimonies” than Vice President Mike Pence. “Just two months ago he was supporting the president’s baseless fraud allegations,” she said. “But after a riot by supporters of his own re-election, the vice president was finally stunned and furious with Trump.
“Mike Pence, be real!” she exclaimed. “You just wanted an excuse to get out of there. You’re like me at a dry marriage. I don’t care about love, I want to fuck myself for free!
Bee later concluded, “Whether they are backing off now or not, the Republicans who cheered on this angry mob have blood on their hands. And he can’t be blown away with a last minute mea culpa. If we don’t hold these assholes accountable now, it will inevitably happen again.
