Samantha Bee Monday offered a model to assuage the anxieties felt by many who fear a Donald Trump presidency, laying the blame for Trump’s election on “the Jews,” and more specifically, former Daily Show host Jon Stewart.
“Right now there are’s a lot of blaming going on,” Bee said during her final segment on TBS’s Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. “Bernie [Sanders] supporters blaming Democrats for nominating Hillary [Clinton], Hillary supporters blaming the Bernie campaign for damaging their candidate, the media blaming Hillary for blaming the media.”
“But I think we all know who’s fault it is,” she continued. “The Jews, obviously. Damn you Jon [Stewart].”
Bee also took responsibility for the role she played in helping elect Trump. “I should have thrown Gary Johnson off that f*cking wall when I had the chance,” Bee said.
But with Thanksgiving around the corner, Bee said she hopes everyone spends the holiday in their “happy place, like this guy.”
“This guy,” of course, is the man of Zen himself, Jon Stewart.
Watch the clip below to see what Stewart’s happy place looks like in Trumpworld, via TBS:

The brother of George Floyd described the condolence phone call he received from President Donald Trump during a Saturday interview on MSNBC.
Philonise Floyd was interviewed by the Rev. Al Sharpton on "Politics Nation."
While Derek Chauvin has been arrested and charged with third degree murder, the other three officers involved in the killing remain free.
"They all need to be convicted of first degree murder and given the death penalty," Floyd said.
"What was the conversation with President Trump like?" Sharpton asked.
"It was so fast," Floyd replied.
"He didn't give me an opportunity to even speak. It was hard, I was trying to talk to him, but he just kept like pushing me off, like 'I don't want to hear what you're talking about.' And I just told him I want justice. I said that I couldn't believe they committed a modern-day lynching in broad daylight."
