Bee: The Republican Party 'Punishes Black and Brown Voters for Just Wanting to Vote'


After expressing glee about NASCAR removing the confederate flag and HBO removing "Gone With the Wind," Full Frontal host Samantha Bee delivered a monologue about how "while some racist sh** is going away, one thing that isn't is the way the Republican Party punishes black and brown voters for just wanting to vote." According to Bee, "Republicans work incredibly hard to make voting difficult; especially for voters who are black, indigenous, or people of color. Republicans' key voting bloc is older, whiter people who are one heartbeat away from the great Cracker Barrel in the sky. Meanwhile, the electorate has become more diverse and more likely to reject campaign promises that sound like they come from the most uncomfortable parts of Splash Mountain." Bee also seemed quite excited that "Republicans' base is shrinking." The TBS host spent the rest of her monologue trashing the 2013 Supreme Court decision on Shelby v. Holder as well as voter ID laws.
