Samantha Bee mocks Republicans for ‘c*ckblocking’ Merrick Garland nomination
Full Frontal host Samantha Bee slammed conservative lawmakers on Monday night for going to any length to block the Supreme Court nomination of Merrick Garland.
“Why are you c*ckblocking this gentle law Hobbit?” she demanded to know.
Bee rejected the rationale from “half-melted Reagan dummy from Madame Tussaud’s wax museum” Ted Cruz and other Republicans that President Barack Obama should leave the high court with a vacancy because he is a “lame duck.”
“Jesus Christ, he’s not a lame duck,” Bee said. “He’s three trimesters away from lame duckery. A president’s term is four years; you can’t say three of them are legitimate and the fourth is garbage. They’re not Indiana Jones movies.”
Instead, she said, they are holding out for their right to see either Hillary Clinton appoint “a transgender Black Panther abortion doctor” or Donald Trump nominate “a pile of Maxim magazines.”
