Watch: Samantha Bee Plumbs the Depths of the Trump Supporter Psyche - and It's Way Worse Than You Thought

Samantha Bee assembled "an elite group of Trump supporters" on her Full Frontal show Monday night, and this well-spoken, multi-ethnic group seemed reasonable enough...for the first 30 seconds, then went totally off the rails.

When the topic of Trump's ban on all Muslims entering the country came up, the blonde woman with the pearls politely pointed out that he just wants to protect the country from Muslims. Everyone agreed that America is great because it is made up of all kinds of people, including white supremacists. 

After this lovely group asserted that the media was to blame for taking Trump's words out of context—and that Samantha Bee was probably the biggest media whore there is—she invited them to her "totally unironic" party. She brought along her fact-checker just in case, but both Bee and the fact-checker were flummoxed when another blonde woman assured them that Trump would make Mexico pay for that wall, because he said so. "How do you fact-check bluster?" Bee wondered.

We're guessing Samantha and her team needed a long hot shower after this one, and probably various recreational drugs.
