“Full Frontal” host Samantha Bee on Wednesday unleashed a righteous rant against Hope Hicks, reminding Donald Trump’s now-ex communications director that while she might “ escape this nightmare presidency unscathed,” when she’s at “the gates of the nice white protestant heaven,” St. Peter will laugh in her face.
“At times like these when the government is falling apart and the Saturday Night Massacre has turned into an 11-week bender, it’s easy to lose track of important stories, even when they really, really matter,” Bee said. “Not tonight. I cannot let another week go by without saying, ‘F*ck you, Hope Hicks!’”
“Trump’s communication director is on her way out,” Bee continued. “I’ve never talked much about Hope because, unlike every other members of the Trump orbit, she doesn’t careen onto our television screens lobbing lies and racial invective every damn day. But that doesn’t mean she should get a pass.”
Bee noted Hicks’ breaking point was the personal infighting and not the president’s support for Nazis who marched in Charlottesville, but “at least we all know what it would look like if Zooey Deschanel joined the alt right.”
“Hope Hicks, thanks to your force field of bland pretty whiteness, you’ll probably escape this nightmare presidency unscathed,” Bee said. “You’ll disappear into a nice, wealthy anonymity in a nice town somewhere.”
“And some day you’ll go to the gates of the nice white protestant heaven where St. Peter will laugh in your face and say, ‘You think you’re getting in here? You helped burn down democracy, b*tch! Get your ass downstairs!’” she added. “See you around the baking aisle, Hopie.”
