Samantha Bee Roasts Donald Trump At 'Not The WHCD'
Samantha Bee held her long-awaited "Not The White House Correspondents' Dinner" in Washington, D.C. on Saturday night and let me say... she did not disappoint.
The "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" star announced she was holding the event back in January after Donald Trump was sworn in as president of the United States.
As her fans know, Bee is never one to shy away from calling Trump out.
Saturday night's event was no different. While the press and even our past (dead) presidents weren't in the clear either, Samantha Bee made it clear President Donald Trump was her biggest target of the night.
Bee started off subtle by commending the press and simultaneously calling Trump out for undermining them, but things got heated pretty quickly. Bee said,
We are living in a Golden Age of journalism. Unfortunately, that's partly due to a golden president who's rumored to enjoy golden showers.
She also called out President Donald Trump over his proposed wall at the Mexico border. She said she wanted her "Not The WHCD" guests to have a great time, so, she said,
As I promised you in the invitation, at a later date, I will date Mexico to pay for all your drinks.
Then Bee took the trending news to a new level. She told Trump: "You sold people on huge expectations and lies... You're basically the presidential Fyre Festival."
We also got some special Trump digs from Will Ferrell in his George W. Bush impersonation. Yeah, that really happened.
For the longest time, I was considered the worst president of all time. That has changed. I needed eight years of catastrophic flood, a war built on a lie, an economic disaster. The new guy needed a hundred days. He's now widely considered the worst president of all time. I come in second. I'm fine with that, no one remembers second place.
With these legendary comedians, the jokes never get old.
