Samantha Bee on the Election: ‘We Still Have Millions of Nasty Women Who Aren’t Going Away’

Here’s a clip from last night’s post-election Full Frontal special, where Samantha Bee takes a closer look at Trump’s election win: “What we did was the democratic equivalent of installing an above-ground pool: Even if we’re lucky and it doesn’t seep into our foundations, the neighbors will never look at us the same way again.” Bee points out that white people – particularly white women – voted for Trump in droves, so even if you’re white and voted for Hillary Clinton, “if Muslims have to take responsibility for every member of their community, so do we.” Bee also pointed out some silver linings down the election ballot this year and took on a hopeful tone about the future. “America is still a great country and it is still worth fighting for. It has Shonda Rhimes shows and peanut butter and Beyonce and Lin-Manuel Miranda rap-weeping at awards shows. And it has the beautiful US Constitution, which we should probably start teaching in schools,” she says. “And if Ms. Rodham’s not in the White House, that’s okay. One of those girls is going to be. We still have millions of nasty women who aren’t going away, and as long as women over 25 are still allowed on television, I’ll be here cheering them on.”
