On her latest episode Samantha Bee tackled down Anthony Scaramucci and his new role in the White House and how that has had an impact on President Donald Trump.
“What does the Mooch Doctrine look like in practice?” Bee asked her audience. “Oh, worse than you could even imagine.”
“Scaramucci was working the ‘don’t think of me as your teacher vibe’ so hard, I was waiting for him to sit on his podium and tell the press corps to call him Mr. S,” Bee said of Scamarucci’s introductory press conference.
“I know you don’t know or care how government works; that has been made abundantly clear, but we don’t make bullshit discriminatory laws on Twitter,” Bee said.
“Firing thousands of active duty service members in the middle of the big push against ISIS was Trump’s version of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’” she added. “He didn’t ask anyone if it was a good idea and he didn’t tell anyone he was going to do it. But that is how we roll now.”
“I have my issues with your antebellum house elf, but Jefferson Beauregard Antietam Sessions is nothing if not loyal — to the confederacy, and to you,” Bee explained to Trump. “And how did you repay that sweet puppy-dog devotion? The same way you always repay your friends: by publicly throwing them under the bus — or the truck, or the fire engine, or whatever oversized Tonka toy your babysitters roll onto the White House law. Vroom!”
