‘Oh, Kill Me’: Samantha Bee Reacts When Asked if She’s Considering Running for Office

Following the broadcast of her ‘Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner’ special last night, comedian Samantha Bee appeared on CNN’s State of the Union to discuss her program and a number of other politically relevant topics.

Considering that there is a former reality TV star occupying the White House and chatter among liberals about getting big name celebrities to run for office in the coming election cycles, Bee was pressed on her thoughts on tossing her hat into the political ring.

Engaged in a bit of a friendly back-and-forth with host Jake Tapper about the issue of celebs running for office — with Bee saying perhaps Tapper should run — Bee was asked if she were running for anything.

“Oh, kill me,” she reacted. “Please no!”

As far as the idea that Democrats should take a page out of the GOP book and throw out a celebrity as a candidate, she wasn’t altogether sold on it.

“They should take a page out of somebody’s book,” Bee stated. “I don’t know that that solves all the ills of the Democratic Party. But I’m willing to try anything.”
