Samantha Bee is officially out of the woods and back in her studio. “And that’s the one thing that’s not scary right now, because it’s really sucks,” Full Frontal host said, referring to the ever-inevitable confirmation from Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett.
“And so is it,” Bee added, moving to a news clip on the big question of whether Donald Trump will accept the results of next week’s presidential election. “Oh come on, the media, of course he won’t. Do you know how we know that? Because he said it, damn, a lot!
“Trump has cried foul every time he lost something,” she continued. “The popular vote, the Iowa Caucus, the Emmys, his erection on his wedding night. If Trump loses, he will call it a fraud and try to steal the election amid the chaos. We can stop it with a decisive victory from Biden. But if Trump wins, legitimately or not, this could be our last free election.
But since “no leader can become fully authoritarian without accomplices,” Bee turned his attention to his “toads like Grumpy Cat tribute artist William Barr”, who “politicized the Justice Department in appalling ways” and is about to use his power to “crush political dissent” if Trump tries to steal the election from Biden.
“Man, it’s amazing how much a 12 year old man wearing glasses can throw up,” Bee said. “There is nothing more American than complaining about America. But Trump has always favored the persecution of his opponents, from jailing Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to declaring war over tight-fitting suits.
“We always knew the risks of electing someone like Trump, but we were told not to panic,” the host later told viewers. “The American institutions will protect us, the courts will keep it under control, the Republican Congress will prevent it from going too far, but Trump has beaten the snot in our institutions.
But now that a full third of the Supreme Court is made up of Trump-appointed judges, and the Republican Congress has shown no willingness to verify its power, Bee has indicated that the time for panic has come.
“This is what nascent authoritarianism looks like,” she said. “Trump is trying to break our election because he’s afraid of losing. He is trying to take your vote away from you so he can have another four years to fill the courts with radical judges and limit your rights so that it is even more difficult to make your voice heard.
“But we can stop it,” Bee continued. “We won the House in 2018 by the biggest margin ever and we come back even stronger this year because there is power in the vote,” urging his audience to “save democracy” with #PinV. “Just work this P-V until we get what America needs to stay free: unity, trust, and integrity. Or to make it short, #UTI.
