Samantha Bee called out President Trump on Wednesday’s Full Frontal for denouncing all but his most loyal supporters. When Trump fired acting attorney general Sally Yates for rejecting his immigration ban, Sean Spicer called Yates’ action a betrayal. This is because Trump values loyalty above (almost) anything else and has already rejected many of his opponents.
“It took Richard Nixon three years to compile his enemies list,” Bee said. “But in less than two weeks the Trump team has already called the media ‘the opposition party,’ fired an acting attorney general, pressured the chief of Customs and Border Patrol into resigning, purged the State Department of seasoned, career diplomats, kicked the director of National Intelligence and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs off the National Security Council, replaced them with some crazy dude he trusts—because why not?—and accused Lindsay Graham and John McCain, the proprietors of the 66 remaining vertebrae among Senate Republicans, of trying to start World War III. Sorry, guys, at the rate Trump is going, you’ll probably have to settle for starting World War IV.”
