Samantha Bee: 'Fire And Fury' Is 'The Book-Length Version Of A Trump Tweet'
On Wednesday’s broadcast of “Full Frontal,” Bee said that “as fun as” Wolff’s tome was, it was also “riddled with inaccuracies, thinly-sourced and full of typos.”
“Fire and Fury is basically the book-length version of a Trump tweet,” said Bee. “Only vaguely truth-adjacent but incredibly distracting, which is too snide because while everyone on cable news was fixated on Michael Wolff’s shoddy ninth generation Xerox copy of Game Change, there were actual things happening. Like news and stuff or whatever, I don’t know, mostly to brown people.”
It was a “real racist win-win,” said Bee. “Either they gather a list of undocumented immigrants or Hispanic people avoid answering the census and lose congressional representatives and funding.”
Bee said “2018 is going to be a really notable year” and urged viewers to “retain our eye on the ball.”
“We can’t count on pundits to back,” she added. “They’re going to retain getting distracted by the nonsense of the day, like fruitless speculation approximately Trump’s mental health.”
