Following the United Kingdom’s vote to leave the European Union last Friday, Samantha Bee addressed the idea that a Brexit win in Britain means Donald Trump could win in America.
“The Brexit vote was driven by angry, less educated, older white voters who feel screwed by globalization and the establishment, and have been fed a chip butty of xenophobia slathered in slogan sauce,” Bee said.
She admitted that “America is not Britain,” and that “being not Britain is pretty much central to the whole America brand.” Also, America is far more diverse and Britain only began dealing with immigration on a large scale in the last half century.
“Trump’s brand of right-wing, racist, anti-immigrant demagoguery isn’t American,” Bee proclaimed. “It’s a European import. And if we’re smart, we’ll stop it at the border and send it back where it came from.”
The real problem with Brexit is that they give a voice to racists and “made these hateful morons think that over half the country agreed with them,” Bee said. “This is why it’s not enough for Trump to lose. It has to be a f—king landslide.”
