Samantha Bee Unleashes on Hope Hicks: ‘You Helped Burn Down Democracy, B*tch!’
On Wednesday night, Samantha Bee had some harsh words for outgoing White House Communications Director Hope Hicks.
After tacking numerous headlines from former FBI Deputy Andrew McCabe‘s firing to the controversy surrounding Cambridge Analytica, the Full Frontal host had something to get off her chest.
“It’s easy to lose track of important stories, even when they really, really matter. Well, not tonight,” Bee said. “I cannot let another week go by without saying… ‘F**k you, Hope Hicks!'”
Bee admitted that she “never talked much” about Hicks because she “doesn’t careen onto our television screens lobbing lies and racial invective every damn day” unlike others in President Trump‘s orbit, but added “that doesn’t mean she should get a pass.”
She ripped Hicks for saying that she “doesn’t like politics” in a New York magazine piece and for leaving the White House because she didn’t like the in-fighting instead of for things like “Charlottesville.” Bee also mocked how Hicks reportedly made cookies and left notes for staffers in silver marker.
“At least we all know what it would have looked like if Zooey Deschanel joined the alt-right,” Bee quipped.
Bee then addressed Hicks directly:
“Hope Hicks, thanks to your force field of bland pretty whiteness, you’ll probably escape this nightmare presidency unscathed. You’ll disappear into a nice wealthy anonymity in a nice town somewhere. And some day you’ll go to the gates of the nice white protestant heaven where St. Peter will laugh in your face and say, ‘You think you’re getting in here? You helped burn down democracy, bitch! Get your ass downstairs!’ See you around the baking aisle, Hopie.”
