Samantha Bee attacked Harvey Weinstein, all men like him

It’s been nearly a week since the bombshell report that exposed Harvey Weinstein’s decades of sexual harassment coverups, and women continue to come out with their own stories of assault by powerful men.

So on Wednesday’s Full Frontal, Samantha Bee had a lot to work with as she launched her own assault on the Hollywood power player.

“When the scandal broke, Weinstein made an apology-like statement in The New York Post, saying, ‘I have got to change, I’ve got to grow.’ ‘I know a lot of people would like me to go into a facility.’ Oh my God, I’m so behind in the slang. Is a ‘facility’ what people call hell?”

In his apology, Weinstein said that back when he joined the workforce, things were different, and that, it seems, is his excuse.

“Oh, give me a break, White Cosby. Nobody asked for your ‘all about mea culpa.’ Don’t blame the ’60s and ’70s for your shitty decision making. It’s serial sexual harassment, not a Monkees tattoo.”

“The stories emerging from the actual victims paint a real picture of Harvey Weinstein. Specifically, a Hieronymus Bosch picture.”

Bee then offered a PSA to all men with penises. Keep it in your pants. It’s not that difficult to go to work without masturbating in front of a co-worker.

Watch the clips below for Bee’s takedown.
