Samantha Bee Horrified That Hong Kong Protesters Like Trump, Republicans


Left-wing comedian Samantha Bee traveled to Hong Kong to meet with pro-democracy protesters committed to holding “China accountable for their actions,” airing her interviews on Wednesday’s edition of Full Frontal. A bewildered Bee confronted one of the protesters: “this is a photograph of you with Marco Rubio and you look happy. Please explain.” The protester explained that the Florida Senator introduced the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act. After learning this, Bee remarked “Marco Rubio did something that I like. Every day holds the possibility of a new miracle.” She seemed excited that “both the House and Senate agreed to pass legislation protecting democracy” before whining: “unfortunately, it wasn’t our democracy.” Eventually, Bee spoke to a group of pro-democracy protesters dressed holding Trump signs, telling them “I see that you are really going for a look. I am cool with it, I swear, but I will say that most people, if they saw you like this, would run screaming into the forest and not come back for like three to ten days.” One of the protesters shot back: “Actually, President Donald Trump is the number one people in the world that could stand against China. Therefore, we try to raise the name of President Trump to help us.” According to Bee, “this place is bananas. Here, Trump is like Nelson Mandela and Luke Skywalker rolled into one righteous freedom fighter but will he deliver?” As one of the protesters attempted to put a MAGA hat on Bee, she visibly cringed and ducked. Towards the end of the segment, Bee put on glasses designed to resemble Pepe the Frog after stopping at a jewelry store and declared “I hate myself.”
