On Monday’s Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, the host scorched outgoing North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory for refusing to concede the election to challenger state Attorney General Roy Cooper.
Bee took the audience on a “long journey to a hot land haunted by memories of Civil War and sustained by farming a deadly, addictive drug” to show what it looks like “when a defeated party clings to power.”
“[McCrory] took his defeat like a man, by which I mean he refused to have his status lowered,” Bee joked.
Referencing McCrory’s insistence that illegal votes helped elect his opponent, Bee shot back that it was more likely his “transphobic crapper fixation” that turned off voters. “I can’t think of anything classier than crying conspiracy when you lose,” Bee said. “Oh yes I can! Crying conspiracy when you win.”
The host then tore into Donald Trump over his tweet last week proclaiming he would have won the popular vote were it not for the millions of people who voted for Hillary Clinton illegally. Bee reasoned Trump would have “won even biglier” were it not for the “ugly chicks, flag burners and Alex Baldwins who shouldn’t even be allowed to vote.”
Bee closed the segment criticizing Green Party candidate Jill Stein’s recount effort in Michigan, inviting her viewers to spend time participating in state elections instead of donating money towards a cause that’s serving to undermine our democracy.
“Remember state elections come down to a handful of votes, just ask this loser,” Bee said, referencing McCrory.
