Samantha Bee Spells Out How Trump Destroyed The Republican Party

by Katherine Barner

Samantha Bee trumps Trump flawlessly once again! The host of TBS’s Full Frontal looks back to the shitshow that was the 2016 primaries as they come to a close in her segment “2016 Primaries, What the F**k Happened?”

She traces back to last year, when Trump announced his candidacy, and reminds us how the Republicans spoke against him, like Senator Marco Rubio (“We’re not going to allow a con artist to take over the party of Lincoln and Reagan”), and Texas Governor Rick Perry (“Donald Trump’s candidacy is a cancer on conservatism and it must be clearly diagnosed, excised, and discarded”). 

The same people who pledged their support for his nomination since Cruz dropped out on May 3, when “One by one, elected Republicans turned up their collars and did the scuttle of shame into Trump’s limo—until finally, predictably, the last domino fell.” And in the words of Samantha Bee herself, “Damn, you guys rolled over faster than Melania Trump does after Donald dribbles out another unsatisfying midnight crotch tweet.”

Watch Samantha Bee exactly outline how Trump destroyed the GOP:
