Samantha Bee Fawns Over Impeachment Announcement: 'I Just Got Chills'


Full Frontal host Samantha Bee began her opening monologue Wednesday night by expressing her excitement that "the Democrats announced articles of impeachment this week." After playing a clip of House Judiciary Committee chair Jerry Nadler announcing the articles of impeachment, Bee declared: "I just got chills." The left-wing comedian had a slightly different reaction to a clip of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy admonishing the House Democrats for going down the impeachment rabbit hole, telling him: "your mouth is saying it's easy to defend the President but I bet your sphincter's telling a different story." Bee went on to slam the Republican strategy as "Kava-Noise," where "white men who have done something awful shout into a camera at us until it goes away" before complaining that "it kind of works." According to Bee, "after they turn hearings into 14-hour tantrums, they get headlines like 'Impeachment Devolves Into Partisan Brawl,' 'Partisan Fireworks.'" In addition to trashing President Trump, she also went after Devin Nunes; whom she described as a "national sweat depository" and a "newborn baby fawn." Bee proceeded to play "Congressional Match Game," asking the question "Dumb Devin is so dumb, he just tripped on his own (blank)." At this point, a video of the game show "Match Game" appeared where the contestant gave the word "boner" as her answer. As her monologue came to a close, Bee admitted that "impeachment is a slog" while "begging" the American public to "pay attention, watch the hearings, read the reports, (and) don't let them shout you into apathy."
