The morning after Samantha Bee’s critically applauded TBS special “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner,” the comedian was put in the hot seat when Jake Tapper asked her how it felt to be the face of the Democratic party’s problem.
The “State of the Union” host read a story in The New York Times from Sept. 2016 which said, “… the Democratic Party’s problem in the age of Trump isn’t really Jimmy Fallon, it’s problem is Samantha Bee. Not Bee alone, of course, but the entire phenomenon that she embodies: the rapid colonization of new cultural territory by ascendant social liberalism.”
Although Bee laughed it off, Tapper asked, “How does it feel to be the face of the problem?”
“Oh my God, my name was in an article,” Bee joked. “I’ll wait for all that evidence to roll in and then I’ll make up my mind after that. … It’s one person’s opinion, one wonderful chap.”
