Watch: Samantha Bee Mocks Ultra-Rich SuperPAC Donors for Backing Losers - to Their Face

Nearly everyone in America agrees that money in politics is ruining elections -- even Hillary Clinton.

“Money as speech turns our constitution upside down,” Clinton said. Oh yes, she went there.

“That lady with the $60 million super PAC is right -- but what about the real victims of super PACs?" asked Samantha Bee, host of "Full Frontal."

"I’m talking of course about the donors," explained Bee.

Because, let's face it: The unrecognized victims of super PACs are often the ones who give the most. In fact, Bee sat down with one millionaire victim who seems to get scammed into supporting the wrong candidate every election.

“[Having given to] Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush... I don’t seem to bring much success with me—except money," the donor told Bee.

“Sometimes the millionaires with the most to give have the most to lose,” Bee mused.

And even though Jeb Bush received over $100 million, "Mel" calls Mitt Romney's loss “the biggest disappointment" in his life.

"I want to influence as much as I can for the good of the country, which I love a lot," "Mel" told Bee.

Aw, poor guy.
