"There were more golden shower jokes on the internet than golden shower videos," the host exclaimed.

Samantha Bee has moved to a new night on TBS, but that hasn't changed her main target: Trump. 

Taking aim at the president-elect during Wednesday's show, Bee tackled the recently released unsubstantiated Russian reports released in full by Buzzfeed, which included claims of Trump paying prostitutes to perform "golden showers."

"We’re supposed to believe Trump is paying people who do work for him?" Bee quipped about those reports that supposedly include certain activities the president-elect witnessed while in Moscow.

The host admitted that the claims were probably “bullshit, but the fact that it's plausible bullshit is a terrifying statement of what our nation has come to." Bee noted that the only verified thing about the reports was “how much joy it gave me.”

Following President Barack Obama's farewell speech in Chicago on Tuesday, Bee joked it was "just one of those moments when the first black president gives a farewell speech while the next president pays chicks to pee on a bed.” The main victim, Bee said, was the "memory foam mattress" that can "never forget."

Following the news reports, there were more "more golden shower jokes on the internet than golden shower videos," Bee added. 

Trump was not the only one to draw Bee's ire, however, as she also took aim at Trump’s recent pick for attorney general, Jeff Sessions, playing on his Southern name by making a few additions, dubbing him "Jefferson Beauregard Confederacy Scarlett O'Hara Cotton Gin Sessions III." "He’s a 70-year-old white guy from Alabama, there's a very good chance he’s dropped an N-bomb or two, and that’s not even counting when he sings along with his Outkast albums," Bee said. 

Bee ended the show with an all-white barbershop quartet harmonizing her theme song in what she named a “more appropriate” version for “the era we’re entering.”
