Watch: Samantha Bee Shuts Down Conservative Whining About Tubman on the $20
Samantha Bee dedicated a segment of Full Frontal last night to the discussion of money—or as Bee helpfully explains, “for those of you who haven’t heard of it, it’s like Venmo for old people.” The centerpiece of the discussion? Harriet Tubman replacing Andrew Jackson on the front of the $20 bill, and right-wing freakouts about a black woman “making a white man move to the back.”
“Look, I know that change is difficult,” said Bee, in faux empathic tones. “I still haven’t gotten over Roseanne replacing the original Becky with Becky with the good hair.” (Double points for sneaking in the BeyoncÃ© reference.)
“When we make such a dramatic change to something no one ever looks at, we have to consider the fragile feelings of white men who, tragically, only appear on seven out of seven bills currently in production,” Bee added.
From there, she took down Fox and Friends’ Brian Kilmeade and anyone else confusing Jackson with a Founding Father. As always, it’s absolutely worth a watch, below.
