Samantha Bee‘s Full Frontal is off this week, but produced a special web-only segment devoted to ripping some of the more reprehensible people supporting Sen. Ted Cruz, “Princeton’s unwanted fetus.”
These include Kevin Swanson, the fervent anti-LGBT Colorado preacher who has endorsed Cruz and also averred his belief that homosexuality is punishable by death. Bee plays some clips from Swanson’s highly agitated speech at his National Religious Liberties Summit last November, where he said (among other things) that he’d spread cow manure all over his body if his son came out as gay.
Another Cruz supporter is Mike Bickle, the founder of an extremist doomsday sect whose endorsement Cruz touted in January. Bee replays a sermon in which Bickle seems to be saying that Adolph Hitler was a wake-up call from God, telling Jews to convert to Christianity.
“By the way,” Bee concludes, “when Democrats start calling for the execution of gays and Muslims, I promise I will hit them just as hard.”
