Samantha Bee Attacks Conservatives, Calls Fox Nation ‘Substance-Free Propaganda’
Leftist spent part of a Wednesday night monologue going after Tomi Lahren, Jeanine Pirro and others
Controversial late-night comedian Samantha Bee (pictured above left) is no fan of Fox News’ new streaming service, Fox Nation.
The subscription service includes content from Fox hosts and regulars such as Laura Ingraham, Jeanine Pirro, Tomi Lahren, and Tyrus from “The Greg Gutfeld Show.”
Yet Bee — with apparently nothing better to talk about — spent part of her Wednesday night show going after the streaming service.
“It’s like television, Grandpa, but you get it on the smaller screen that you use for writing racism on Facebook,” she said, referring to the older viewers who watch Fox News. Fox Nation is meant to capitalize on Fox’s younger viewers and to expand on that demographic.
Bee referred to a story in The New York Times that called Fox Nation “Netflix for conservatives.”
“Which means it’s for people who like Netflix but wish its World War II documentaries weren’t so mean to the Nazis,” Bee said.
The comedian then did something truly odd and desperate: She picked out specific moments from Fox Nation shows and aired them without context.
One person she targeted was Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, who does “10 Minute Justice” for Fox Nation.
Bee played a clip in which Pirro took on the migrant caravan and said, “Are you people stupid? And don’t give me this racism nonsense. We fought a Civil War to make sure we put an end to the stain of racism and slavery in our nation; we’re not racist.” She then said Americans were the real “victims” when it came to illegal immigration.
“It’s like ASMR [autonomous sensory meridian response] for sociopaths,” Bee joked in response. ASMR videos are a viral trend; people use sensitive microphones to eat food or make other noises that are considered to be pleasant to people’s ears.
Bee also went after “10 Minute Justice” for not being exactly 10 minutes long in each and every episode.
The comedian — clearly straining — also targeted any hosts who even mentioned the idea of a “war on Christmas.” She also criticized Tomi Lahren for defending Melania Trump’s red Christmas decorations at the White House.
“Yes, we shouldn’t look down on their tree color, that’s what skin color is for,” Bee said.
The comedian ultimately concluded about Fox Nation, “It’s just pure, substance-free propaganda squirted right down your slobber hole.”
She added, “On top of that, it’s a great way for Fox to squeeze some extra bucks from all the olds who sign up but forget to unsubscribe.”
