Samantha Bee to Hillary Clinton: ‘It should have been you’

I thought —   and feared —   that you being elected would unleash a wave of misogyny in the U.S. And you would have been attacked for doing things that would now seem inconsequential.”

She continued, “Hell, I was supposed to talk about you on my show for the next four   years —   and now I’m saddled with that pint of flat orange Fanta who gives me way more material than I’d ever want. Addressing Clinton directly, Bee said,   “I’m only going to say this once —   though you deserve to hear it 100 times —   it should have been you. Show Full Article And you would have made mistakes. Read Bee’s full introduction at the Women in the World website. We may not know what the future will hold, but I’m hopeful that there is one.”
Bee also joked that she was   surprised Clinton was able   to   make it to   the conference. The Full Frontal host saluted the former senator and secretary of state Wednesday while introducing her at the   Women in the World Summit   in New York. But as we’ve seen, that happened anyway — which is why we can’t allow ourselves to dwell on the fact that I had a celebratory blue sequin custom suit made for my post-election show, and could barely wear it. “At least we’re hoping.”

Bee’s remarks culminated with her welcoming “Hillary Rodham Beyoncé Clinton,” who then participated in an   interview with   New York Times columnist   Nicholas Kristof. As Donald Trump approaches   his 100th day as president,   Samantha Bee   is more   convinced than ever that Hillary Clinton should be the one sitting in the Oval Office. “I assumed by now Hermione would have returned to her rightful home at Hogwarts, where she’s rumored to be the new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor,” she   said.
