With awards season nearing, Samantha Bee on Monday took the opportunity to dedicate her first ever “Thunderc*nt Award” to “a hero who has risen from the post-apocalyptic landscape of Trump coverage”: CNN’s Jake Tapper.
“Jake Tapper, for making cable news bearable, may I present you with our first—and hopefully not our last—Full Frontal Thunderc*nt Award,” Bee said, holding up a black t-shirt with a fierce feline design.
The Lead host thanked Bee for the recognition, acknowledging that while he can’t show the t-shirt to his children, he did have to say “similar words that start with a ‘P’” while covering the 2016 election.
“I really appreciate it,” Tapper told Bee. “I will never ever wear it, but thank you.”
