Samantha Bee tore into Donald Trump on Monday’s Full Frontal for his potential cabinet picks. “Donald Trump is assembling a White House staff, now that Barack Obama’s told him that’s a thing presidents have to do,” she joked. That staff includes RNC chair Reince Priebus, an anagram of “Eerie RNC Pubis” and the opposite of an anti-establishment pick, and former Breitbart editor Steve Bannon, whose publication has peddled nationalist and anti-Semitic views.
When Bannon was announced as a senior advisor, the media reacted, saying, “Today, Trump has fueled racial concerns.” To which Bee asked, “Today? Bannon joined Trump’s campaign last summer. How is CNN just now discovering that he’s the milkshake that brings all the deplorable to the yard? We tried to warn you! We made our poor staff artist draw a million Pepes.”
The list also includes Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich. “This cabinet list isn’t just a liberal’s nightmare. A liberal’s nightmare is running out of almond milk at a brunch party,” said Bee. “This is a nightmare for anyone who thinks job candidates should have relevant experience and education beyond the qualification of being named Steve.”
