Samantha Bee criticizes double standard for Hillary Clinton
Bee also refers to Donald Trump 'cradling Putin's sweaty sack'
Last week, the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia officially nominated Hillary Clinton for president. The convention was full of emotional speeches, rousing endorsements, and lots of balloons. But the biggest takeaway for Full Frontal host Samantha Bee was how close the general election between Clinton and Donald Trump might still be, despite all that.
President Barack Obama declared in his speech that there has never been a candidate “more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as President of the United States of America.” That endorsement was echoed by Vice President Joe Biden, First Lady Michelle Obama, Clinton’s primary opponent Bernie Sanders, both former Democratic presidents, Pentagon officials, and many others. This overabundance of endorsements and qualifications enraged Bee just as much as it pleased her.
“That is how good you have to be if you’re a woman running for president. And she still might lose!” Bee said. “To this, the least qualified candidate ever to lurch into the public spotlight and s–t on Gold Star moms while cradling Putin’s sweaty sack. Let’s hope Hillary doesn’t get lipstick on her teeth between now and November, or it’s all over.”
