Watch: Samantha Bee's Scathing Takedown of GOP Lawmaker Who Is 'Worst Person in Tennessee'

Samantha Bee ferreted out a truly awful lawmaker from Tennessee on Full Frontal on Monday and exposed her for all her hatefulness. Her name is Sheila Butt, and she espouses just about every type of hatred possible. She opposes abortions even for rape and incest victims, since those crimes are "hard to verify," in her twisted view.


“Right, those crimes are totally unverifiable,” Bee said. “So we should go with the likeliest assumption that girls are lying whores that just like the prestige of claiming to be raped by their fathers? It’s called Occam’s Razor, libtards!”

Butt also might have a little racism problem, having espoused on social media that, “It’s time for a Council on Christian Relations and an NAAWP in this Country.”

Bee gives her the benefit of the doubt. Maybe that WP doesn't stand for "White People." Maybe it stands for Walden Pond. Or maybe Walrus Penises.

Yeah, that's probably right.
