WATCH: Samantha Bee Celebrates the Burial of the GOP

"Daily Show" alum and current "Full Frontal" host Samantha Bee proved again last night that she is one of our country’s national treasures. In a segment where she pretty much rounded all the bases of taking down the GOP’s ridiculous current state of the affairs, Bee declared the party dead, saying its demise began just after its last shitshow of a debate.


“The death throes started Thursday morning, when the Republican establishment suddenly woke up and realized Donald Trump was doing to their brand what his asshole son does to real elephants,” Bee announced. As she spoke, a photo of “big game hunter” Trump Jr. proudly displaying the severed tail of some poor elephant he paid lots of money to kill flashed on the screen.

From there, Bee mockingly took down Mitt Romney’s too-little-too-late repudiation of Trump and John McCain’s insults toward the frontrunner, pointing out his own role in getting us to where we are today.

“Don’t you even dare!” Bee scolded the senator. “The guy who gave us Trump 1.0 does not get to complain about the latest upgrade,” Bee said against the backdrop photo of Sarah “You Betcha” Palin.

Be sure to watch the whole clip below, which includes Bee talking about that gross thing on Ted Cruz’s lip during the debate; Bee pretending to vomit all over the camera when Trump talked about his penis; and Bee perfectly assessing the deeper implication of the bickering between the Donald and Marco Rubio: “I don’t mean to sound sexist, but I think men are just too emotional to be president.”
