Dear Samantha Bee: Unfortunately, skull-stabbing is ‘a thing’
If there’s one thing you can count on from the media, it’s that when a pseudo-celebrity says something stupid that celebrates abortion, it will be lauded from the deserts of the Huffington Post to the wastelands of Salon.com as one of the most brilliant, prescient, and also hilarious monologues ever uttered by a kind-of-famous alleged comedian. Just lately, it’s been Bill Nye the Science Guy, Trevor Noah—he’s the guy at the Daily Show in charge of creating waves of nostalgia for Jon Stewart—and now, Samantha Bee, who hosts a charming show called “Full Frontal.”
Bee took umbrage at Donald Trump’s rather blunt description of partial-birth abortion as “ripping a baby out of the womb of its mother.” Bee and the rest of the media hive immediately went in to full damage control, lest anyone realize the gruesome truth about the procedure Hillary has spent her life promoting. Bee’s resulting monologue immediately garnered quite the buzz, as her friends in the media cackled with relief over her apparent “takedown” of Trump’s abortion comments.
