The results of the 2016 Presidential Election are still very fresh, and for most people the reality of it has yet to really sink in. Right now there are many Americans and voters who just aren’t ready to deal with the fact that in a few months, our nation will swear in Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of our great United States. It has the bizarre feel of an alternate universe plot line, and it’s going to take more than just a few tear-filled days for just over half of America to wrap their heads around this.
To put it bluntly: we must now come to terms with the fact that an audio-animatronic Donald Trump will be in the Hall of Presidents at Disney World forever. People will go and hear moving speeches from George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and the former co-owner of the Miss Universe Pageant.
That’s our truth, America.
That doesn’t mean that everyone has to quit their grieving quite yet though. After a particularly brutal breakup, we generally allow people a couple of weeks to wallow in self pity before we tell them to take a shower, drink some coffee and buck up. We’re still very much in the throes of the “pity party period” – so to speak – and it’s for that reason that this Samantha Bee rant is the perfect “breakup song” for horrified Americans. Unlike Stephen Colbert’s eloquent, thoughtful and candid speech that encouraged unity, the monologue from Bee is enthusiastically anti-Trump. It empowers all Clinton, Johnson, Stein and Sanders voters to wait out the storm by basking in the hilarious afterglow of her witty one-liners and perfectly crafted jabs.
So if you need to watch something that will allow you to indulge in all of your most annoyed, scared, sad and pissed off feelings, then this is the late-night rant for you. And check out the slideshow below the video for a list of her most quotable zingers, in case you want to save them for later or share them on social media.
