Samantha Bee Slams 'Crotch-Fondling' Trump for Faulting Hillary Clinton for Her Husband's Infidelities

As America prepared to watch the second presidential debate after being horrified by Donald Trump's 2005 Hollywood Access tape, Trump somehow managed to "make a last-minute play to non-consensually grab the media narrative," "Full Frontal" host Samantha Bee described.

Trump somehow felt the only way to offset the damage from his "crotch-fondling" talk would be to round up four women, all claiming to have been victimized by the Clintons, and fly them to St. Louis to be used as some sort of “rape victim human shield," Bee explained. 

Bear in mind, this is a man who, in the same debate, seemingly humped a chair while he wasn't lurking behind his political opponent in the creepiest way possible, Bee pointed out.

Of course, Trump's strategy may have appealed to his base, but it failed to resonate with the people Trump desperately needs to win: swing-state-residing suburban women. 

“Rubbing a woman’s face in her husband’s infidelities is not the way to America’s heart,” Bee noted about Trump's strategy on what she calls "the night we gave up." 

“We love wronged wives," Bee continued, noting, "This is the same America that is still obsessed with Jennifer Aniston. Her ex-husband has split up with the woman he cheated on her with, and we still want to know if she’s all right.”

“Why can’t we lock [Bill Clinton] and Donald Trump in a closet together so they can grope each other to death?” Bee asked, because "none of it is Hillary’s fault and none if it erases what Donald did."

Following the debate, pundits overwhelmingly came out against Trump's strategy, from MSNBC’s John Heilemann to Hugh Hewitt, who referenced "Lord of the Rings" in his harsh critique.

Of course, the sh*tshow wouldn't be complete without “one candidate threatening to jail his opponent then stalking her on stage like he’s Leatherface and, finally, fornicating with a chair. When you’re a star, the chairs let you do it,” Bee said.
