Samantha Bee Makes Her Final Plea: Vote for ‘Hillary Goddamn Brilliant Badass Queen Beyoncé Rodham’

Who is Hillary Clinton? As of now, Election Day morning, she’s the woman America could make its first female president. But long before this day no one thought would come, Hillary Clinton was someone else: Hillary Rodham, brunette, and the “first woke white woman” in her Yale Law heyday. Public memory of that Hillary may be fuzzy now, but allow Samantha Bee to give you a brief history lesson on how the “fierce as fuck” Hillary Rodham of the ‘60s became the “fake politician robot” Mrs. Clinton of 2016. Or just look in the mirror, America; it’s all our fault. And Bill’s — okay, mostly Bill’s. And the patriarchy. So if you’ve listened to nothing else Samantha Bee has said this election (for shame!), remember her one last piece of advice: A vote for Hillary Clinton isn’t a vote for Hillary Clinton at all, if you remember who she really is. No, no, there’s a new name to be written in today and later sworn in: “Hillary Goddamn Brilliant Badass Queen Beyoncé Rodham.” Has a nice ring to it.
