Watch Samantha Bee’s Epic Trump Takedown Over 2005 Video

‘Full Frontal’ host also slams Republicans, Paul Ryan for cowardly disavowals

Samantha Bee unleashed a blistering tirade against Donald Trump for his vulgar 2005 comments about groping women without their permission on Full Frontal Monday. Paraphrasing one of Trump’s most heinous quotes in the leaked video, the host introduced the segment by saying, “Oh yeah, I’m going in on this like a bitch.”

During the monologue, Bee not only slammed Trump and then-Access Hollywood host Billy Bush for their blatantly sexist remarks, but hit the Republican nominee for bragging about committing sexual assault. “In fact,” Bee added, “‘Take a tic-tac and grab ’em by the pussy’ is the closest thing to a plan Donald Trump has described this entire election.”

But for Bee, the most disturbing part of the video was how Trump and Bush treated actress Arianne Zucker after getting off the bus, with faux chivalry and by demanding hugs. “Let’s stop that hostile work environment training module here and discuss what we’ve seen,” Bee said. “In less than a minute, these two leering dildos turned their rape culture banter into a rape culture power move that demeaned and violated Zucker in ways she is only now finding out about.”

In part two of the segment, Bee delved into the aftermath of the leak, specifically the numerous Republican men disavowing Trump’s comments with the obtuse qualifier that they have mothers, daughters, sisters and wives. “Trump’s comments are not wrong because you have female relatives — guess what, a surprising number of Americans have at least one female relative,” Bee cracked, showing a pie chart at 100 percent. “Trump’s comments were wrong because women are human.”

But Bee saved the heft of her vitriol for Paul Ryan, “the supposed intellect and conscience of the Republican party,” who has disowned Trump at numerous times throughout the campaign without dropping his endorsement. “You don’t have the courage of a single one of your convictions, but you were smart to disinvite Trump from your Fall Fest,” Bee cracked. “He wouldn’t have been able to resist grabbing a pussy like you.”
