A week ago, media organizations were calling Donald Trump “presidential” for the first time in his tenure. On Wednesday’s Full Frontal, Samantha Bee recapped what happened next.
“Sadly, ‘presidential’ Trump didn’t have long to enjoy his victory over his own tongue,” Bee remarked, referring to Trump’s claim on Twitter that Barack Obama tapped his phones during the election last year.
“That’s new. A white guy shoots himself in the dick, tries to pin it on a black guy. When has that ever happened? To be fair, there’s a good chance Trump fell asleep watching news, rolled over on the remote and woke up during The Wire. Mr. President, that’s not Barack Obama.”
“Apparently, the president’s intel on wiretapping was prepared by Steve Bannon’s news-Pepe of record reporting on a doolally radio host named Mark Levin, whose voices told him Obama is behind a silent coup against Trump,” Bee said.
“Solid. Just one of those classic coups where a president uses the might of the government to spy on an opponent and then doesn’t release any of the information he found, lets the other guy win and then isn’t president anymore. Classic coup, exactly what that word means.” Watch the clip for more.
