Samantha Bee decries the swearing in of ‘white male mediocrity’

On Wednesday’s Full Frontal, Samantha Bee caught up on the week in Trump and mocked his “tacky” coronation party. “Oh yeah, it really happened,” she said. “Donald Trump laid his little pussy-grabbing paw on top of two more books than he’s ever read in his life and spoke the most solemn vow he’s uttered since his third wedding.”

Trump’s “America first” speech did not sit well with Bee at all. And though she hesitates to call him Hitler as many are wont to do, Bee does believe chief strategist Steve Bannon is filling Trump’s head with “more Nazi code than Enigma.”

“The whole day was swollen with lugubrious pomp and freighted with menace that left a lot of us feeling like we’d just installed Trump Emperor of Dune,” Bee said. “It was surreal, and frankly, not very funny.” But Bee managed to mine some funny out of it, especially in mocking the pitiful inaugural concert.
