Watch: Samantha Bee Goes After Cruz and Kasich for Pathetic Math, Trump for Being a Racist Cartoon

Last night on her show Full Frontal, Samantha Bee decided to take a closer look at the winners and losers of the GOP race for the White House.

She began with John Kasich, whose numbers effectively shut him out of any real shot for the presidency, but whose delusional optimism has kept him in the race. After a clip of Kasich saying he’s “studying how Lincoln got there,” and mistakenly stating that Abe occupied fourth place, Bee decided to correct the error.

“Actually, Lincoln was second,” Bee began. “But, yes, you’re in fourth place – out of three! Behind the ghost of Marco Rubio.”

She then turned to Ted Cruz, whose delegate totals are also at also at odds with mathematics—a fact that does seem to bother the Texas Senator. 

“Ted remembered that modern math was invented by the Greeks, who also invented homosexuality, and we should just pray them both away,” Bee said.

The whole thing culminates with a look at Kasich and Cruz’s current plan to team up in an effort to block Donald Trump from getting on the general ballot, and the fact that Trump’s been (possibly) in one big, awful fake out for months now. The Donald, who’s trying to tack back toward “presidential” after months of being a racist, sexist, double racist cartoon is, per Bee, “like a grotesque caterpillar turning into a somehow even more grotesque butterfly.”
