As America heads into award season, Samantha Bee decided to give her congrats to a certain “hero” who emerged from the “post-apocalyptic landscape” of the 2016 election.
The Full Frontal host gave props to CNN’s Jake Tapper last night, and offered him thanks for “making cable news bearable” this year. Bee decided to make a t-shirt out of the insults she’s been receiving online, and in recognition of Tapper’s work, Bee decided to give him her show’s first, very full frontal “Thunderc*nt Award.”
Tapper thanked Bee for the shirt, but said he will never wear it, even though he has said “similar words that start with a ‘P’” as part of his election coverage. I wonder what word Tapper might’ve been talking about?
