Bee Rejects Idea That Mental Illness Causes Mass Shootings: 'It's The Guns, Stupid'

During Wednesday’s edition of Full Frontal, host Samantha Bee rejected the idea that mental illness played a role in the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. According to Bee, “painting mass shooters as mentally ill is unfair to the vast majority of mentally ill people who aren’t stocking up on killing machines.” After describing the mental illness argument as a “lazy assumption,” Bee put up pictures of President Trump and Fox News’s Steve Doocy and said that “it would be like if I assumed that you were all feeble-minded scrotes who could only manage an erection while stroking a gun.”  Bee proceeded to direct a message at President Trump: “We know what causes mass shootings and you do too. It’s the guns, stupid, you know, those weird metal thingies that have controlled every decision you’ve made your entire political career.” Bee also complained that President Trump “found another scapegoat in his speech, citing people who immerse themselves in a violent fantasy world where they’re constantly being attacked by enemies.” As the Fox News logo appeared in the background, Bee declared “not that one, this one” before playing a clip of President Trump talking about how “gruesome and grisly video games” contribute to “the glorification of violence in our society.”
