On her show Wednesday, Samantha Bee told departed White House Comms Director Hope Hicks “f–k you,” attacked her for her “pretty whiteness,” called her a “bitch” and said she’s going to hell.
This is truly the wittiest thing she’s done since mocking a cancer patient for his “Nazi hair.”
From The Daily Beast:
“I cannot let another week go by without saying, ‘F**k you, Hope Hicks!’”
“You know, I’ve never talked much about Hope,” Bee continued, “because unlike every other member of the Trump orbit, she doesn’t careen onto our television screens, lobbing lies and racial invective every damn day. But that doesn’t mean she should get a pass.”
…“Hope Hicks, thanks to your force-field of bland, pretty whiteness, you’ll probably escape this nightmare presidency unscathed,” she added. “You’ll disappear into nice, wealthy anonymity in a nice town somewhere and someday you’ll go to the gates of the nice, white, Protestant heaven where St. Peter will laugh in your face and say, ‘You think you’re getting in here? You helped burn down democracy, bitch, get your ass downstairs!’”
Incidentally, Samantha Bee and her husband Jason Jones in 2016 fought vociferously to keep poor black and Hispanic kids out of her own child’s exclusive school in the Upper West Side of New York.
“To portray any opposition as classist or racist is as bad as it can get,” Jones said at the time.
It’s worth noting Bee’s “two minutes hate” session is also fully monetized on YouTube, whereas the average pleb gets censored if YouTube’s voice recognition software detects a single curse word regardless of context.
Samantha Bee enjoys a “white liberal privilege” the rest of us could only dream of.
