Samantha Bee Presents Her Ode to Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s "Omnipresent Spokescobra"
"Kellyanne’s true superpower is deflecting questions like Supergirl deflects bullets," said the 'Full Frontal' host.
Samantha Bee thinks Kellyanne Conway deserves more credit.
On Wednesday’s show, the Full Frontal host devoted a segment to the first American woman to run a successful presidential campaign. "Tonight we want to celebrate a truly special female woman, Donald Trump’s omnipresent spokescobra, Kellyanne Conway."
Conceding that Conway’s “amazing at her job,” Bee decided that “tonight, we honor her.”
"Kellyanne did turn Trump’s upended Porta Potty of a campaign around and get him elected pretty much single-handedly while raising four children and probably being interrupted every three minutes by the alpha bro jockstraps Trump likes to surround himself with."
Transitioning into Conway’s past in the conservative women’s movement, Bee showed some clips of what she said was "long before Trump grabbed her for his campaign," including footage of Conway's comments on "femininity replacing feminism."
But, she said, “I know Kellyanne doesn’t believe those homophobic things in her heart because Kellyanne doesn’t believe anything in her heart.”
Before Trump hired her for his campaign, Conway spoke on television networks about Trump and his “unpresidential” behavior until "she sang a different tune," according to Bee.
“But Kellyanne’s true superpower is deflecting questions like Supergirl deflects bullets,” said Bee, showing interviews with Conway avoiding endless queries about Trump’s tweeting.
Bee's advice to Trump was to take more lessons from Conway's network interviews. "Have you learned nothing from Kellyanne? Smile, take the question, don’t answer it, complain about Hillary Clinton. It’s not a difficult formula!"
Concluded Bee, "Which raises a difficult question: Why the hell is he the president instead of her? Kellyanne is the soulless Machiavellian despot America deserves! Lean in!"
