<p><em>Full Frontal </em>host Samantha Bee joined the set of Wednesday&rsquo;s <em>PBS NewsHour </em>to promote her TBS show and in the process, she claimed to be an <strong>&ldquo;independent&rdquo; </strong>despite being<strong> &ldquo;excited for Hillary&rdquo;</strong> and defended her show&rsquo;s near constant use of <strong>&ldquo;salty language&rdquo; </strong>despite a drove of critics (which she argued she ignores).&nbsp;</p>

<p>Co-host Gwen Ifill first broached the subject on Bee&rsquo;s political leanings by asking if she was &ldquo;a Democrat, Republican or neither&rdquo; to which Bee comically responded:<strong> &ldquo;I would, I mean, I definitely I think my leanings are very clear from the show but I prefer to think of myself in a more independent way, I think.&rdquo;</strong></p>
