Samantha Bee hammers Trump after Khan debacle: ‘Why are you allowed to have anything to say?’
Samantha Bee lit into Donald Trump on Monday’s episode of Full Frontal for wondering aloud if Ghazala Khan “wasn’t allowed to have anything to say” when her husband criticized him during the Democratic National Convention.
“She was too choked up from seeing her son’s picture,” Bee said, before asking the Republican presidential candidate, “Why are you allowed to have anything to say?”
Bee pointed out that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton accepted the Democratic nomination amid endorsements from not only lawmakers, but President Barack Obama, First Lady Barack Obama, police officers and “half the f*cking Pentagon.”
“That is how good you have to be if you’re a woman running for president — and she still might lose to this,” she said, as an image of Trump surfaced behind her. “The least qualified candidate ever to lurch into the public spotlight and sh*t on Gold Star moms while cradling [Vladimir] Putin’s sweaty sack.”
While Trump was the centerpiece of a group of the Republican National Convention’s parade of “hemorrhoidal has-beens,” Bee argued, Clinton and the Democrats managed to one-up the GOP in terms of presenting an upbeat, patriotic message leading up to Clinton’s history-making nomination, which brought Bee to tears.
“I’m not crying,” she insisted. “I just have tears coming out of my wherever.”
