David Tennant Helps Samantha Bee Mock Trump and Brexit By Reading Scottish Mean Tweets

"They voted 'remain,' you wiggy slice."

Samantha Bee spent the majority of her show on Monday discussing last week's Brexit referendum and how it relates to Donald Trump. 

She talked about the presumptive GOP presidential nominee's gaffe in Scotland where he praised the U.K.'s surprising decision to leave the European Union, calling out Scotland for taking "their country back" — the only issue was Scotland had overwhelmingly voted to remain in the EU.

Bee invited Dr. Who's David Tennant to read a selection of mean tweets aimed at Trump.

"They voted remain you wiggy slice," the actor said, as he read the tweets "with pleasure." He continued, "Scotland voted to stay you witless fing cksplat."

Bee compared the Brexit decision to the current state of United States politics.

“While the Brits were waking up in the ruins of their nation, and saying ‘Oh God, what have we done?’ A lot of Americans were looking over and saying ‘Oh God, what are we about to do?’” said Bee.

The Full Frontal host showed a series of clips of Brexit supporters voicing their opinion. On one man she superimposed a photo of a "Make Britain Great Again" hat after he used Trump's words to describe Britain.

"The Brexit vote was driven by angry, less educated, older white voters who feel screwed by globalization and the establishment and have been fed a chip butty of xenophobia slathered in slogan sauce,” said Bee, adding “Even a brain-damaged baboon couldn’t miss the parallels between the U.S. and Britain.” She deftly segued into a clip of Trump comparing the U.K. and the U.S.

The parallels continued. She showed Brexit supporter Boris Johnson on screen and said he's basically "Trump with his hair on backward." She flashed between photos of David Cameron and Paul Ryan, saying, "Then there’s the sad conservative leader who gambled the nation’s future on his ability to control extremists in his own party and lost."

She said it's important that Trump not only lose in November, but that he lose by a "fing landslide."

“Trump’s brand of right-wing, racist, anti-immigrant demagoguery isn’t American. It’s a European import," said Bee. "And if we’re smart, we’ll stop it at the border and send it back where it came from."
