In recent weeks, Full Frontal host Samantha Bee has used her show as a platform to advocate for progressive policy positions, from student loan forgiveness to gun control. This week, Bee has a new target in her crosshairs: the Electoral College. Bee began her rant against the Electoral College by declaring that "Trump's so-called election is just one of the many reasons the Electoral College sucks and should be abolished." Later, Bee asked "why did our country's founders stick us with the Electoral College instead of something that actually makes sense?" Bee answered her own question: "partly, it's because they were a bunch of elitist pricks who thought the average person was too dumb to choose a leader." After putting up a picture of President Trump, Bee claimed that the Founders' elitist position "wasn't that far from the truth." Bee made the claim that the Electoral College was created "out of pressure to protect states that were at a population disadvantage because they had so many of those pesky three-fifths people." According to Bee, the Electoral College "enabled the worst thing our country ever did, which should be reason enough to consign it to the ash heap of history."
