Samantha Bee Takes Responsibility for Trump's Win by Revealing Which Demographic Really Ruined America

"Full Frontal" host Samantha Bee is in mourning for Hillary Clinton's tragic loss, wearing a purple jacket much like Clinton in her concession speech.


"How did everyone get this so spectacularly wrong, pollsters, the media... us?" Bee asked. 

She then went on to explain that perhaps she jinxed the system. After all she starred in "Law and Order" shorty before it was canceled, and delivered a tasteful interview in Playboy shortly before they canceled nudity. 

"I guess I didn't notice the pattern because yesterday, I voted in an American election for the first time and I broke America," Bee joked. "I am so sorry... and please, don't even think of writing something stupid like, "What a lucky break a Trump Presidency is for comedians, the jokes just write themselves. No, shut up." 

Bee went on to explain exactly why the results horrify most of late night, including both the Jews and Muslims who work on her show.

"Believe it or not, this isn't a great day to be part of the most diverse staff in late night. They're not in a very joke-y mood," she concluded after reading a script they wrote. 

"I should have hired more white dudes," Bee joked, but asserted that "This isn't good for anyone."

"Our democracy just hoiked up a marmalade hair ball with the whole world watching. What we did was the Democratic equivalent of installing an above-ground pool. Even if we're lucky and it doesn't seep into our foundations, the neighbors will never look at us the same way again!" Bee continued. 

The host also pointed out that, while looking around for someone to blame, "once you dust for fingerprints it's pretty clear who ruined America," Bee said, pointed to the fact that 58% of white people voted for Trump, while only 8% of black people did). 

"The caucasian nation showed up in droves to vote for Trump, so I don't want to hear a word about black voter turnout. How many times do we expect black people to build our country for us?" Bee asked. 

She then explained why white people should be held accountable in their own way:

"If Muslims have to take responsibility for every member of their community, then so do we."
