Samantha Bee: Trump's budget shows 'he has no f---ing clue what he's doing'
The 'Full Frontal' host blasted the president on Wednesday
According to Samantha Bee, President Donald Trump has been “bombing harder than Mike Huckabee at an open mic night, and his Republican friends can’t get out of there fast enough.” His latest move, which the Full Frontal host obliterated in a segment on Wednesday night, is the proposed budget plan that would see a rise in defense spending and cuts for the Environmental Protection Agency; the departments of Health and Human Services, State, and Education; and more programs.
“President Trump’s budget reveals something very important about him,” she said. “No, lame-stream media, not his ‘priorities.’ Jesus, get an original idea. It reveals he has no f—ing clue what he’s doing. Surprise!” She added that the funneling of funds to defense “sounds like when an insecure guy tries to make his penis look bigger by shaving down everything else around it.”
Bee focused on Energy Star to illustrate how Trump’s budget plan could harm Americans. “It just provides options for people who want to cut their utility bills without going back to the way our ancestors did things: vacuuming with a baby elephant, doing laundry in a pelican’s mouth,” she said to footage of The Flintstones. “At least, that’s what I read in Betsy DeVos’ textbooks. But our president doesn’t give a s— about any of that.”
What he is “unhealthily obsessed with,” however, is “American carnage,” she continued. Bee then told the story of the 1995 heat wave in Chicago that left hundreds of citizens dead in the face of roaming blackouts. She noted that a “slight improvement in AC energy efficiency could have prevented the blackouts and many of the deaths, but we probably won’t see any more heat waves.”
“Right, Lucky Charms?” Bee added, referring to budget director Mick Mulvaney’s comments about global warming being a waste of money.
“Fine, you know what? F— it.” Bee exclaimed. “Trump’s America is already a figurative hell, it might as well be hotter than hell, too.”
