Samantha Bee Really Wants the Election to Be Over: ‘I Want America to Be Happy Again’

Samantha Bee may be having a moment with her hit late night show, but she feels that enjoyment is maybe not the best emotion to describe this election.

Bee sat down last night with former Daily Show colleague Stephen Colbert, who pointed out that Donald Trump might be great for comedy, but on the other hand he could win…

Bee said that despite the “buffet” of comedy, “I want it to be over so badly! I want to live my life. I want America to be happy again.”

She admitted she and her staff had “terrible anxiety” going into the debate, but they were relieved at the outcome.

On her show Wednesday, Bee went off on the media for setting up a pretty remarkable double standard for what Clinton had to do at the debate versus Trump.
