Samantha Bee brought the hammer down hard on President Trump’s “hard power” budget. The proposed budget would cut funding to the National Endowment for the Arts, HUD, Meals on Wheels, and the EPA, among other things, while bolstering defense funding.
“This kind of sounds like when an insecure guy tries to make his penis look bigger by shaving down everything else around it,” Bee joked. “If you don’t buy my dick metaphor,” she added, watch budget director Mick Mulvaney repeatedly calling it a “hard power budget.”
“President Trump’s budget reveals something very important about him,” Bee said. “He has no f*cking clue what he’s doing.” Mulvaney tried to defend the budget by saying things like after school programs aren’t effective, and that climate change research is a waste of money.
“Fine, you know what? F*ck it!” Bee said. “Trump’s America is already a figurative hell, it might as well be hotter than hell, too.”
