“Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” sent its correspondents to Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration in Washington, DC last week to graciously give his supporters an opportunity to express their excitement.
“My team was at the inauguration Friday to witness firsthand the peaceful transfer of Obama’s achievements into the landfill and to allow some gloating from the other side,” Bee said on Wednesday’s episode.
A respite from Bee’s usual bashing of all things Trump, the interviewees seemed to do the work for her. For example, one young man expressed his vision of national unity to mixed results.
“We are all on this ship together,” he said. “And whether or not it’s the Titanic, we’re yet to see. Support the captain, I guess.”
One correspondent faced a black Trump supporter and could only muster the question, “Why?”
One older woman showed how well she knows the new president, saying, “He doesn’t want to toot his own horn. He’s not arrogant, he’s not egotistical.”
Another helpful Trump supporter offered this advice to those Americans who are experiencing anxiety with Trump in office: “Take two ibuprofen and a hammer, and put your hand down, and smash that fingers, and just scream, ‘Goddamn I hate Trump!'” one reveler suggested, by way of comforting words.
