The 2016 Election was a national embarrassment, and a catastrophe for the nation. So who deserves the blame for all this? White people.

During a fiery opening segment on Wednesday’s post-election episode of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, host Samantha Bee blasted white voters for putting Donald Trump in the White House instead of Hillary Clinton.

“In the coming days, people will be looking for someone to blame: the pollsters, the strident feminists, the Democratic party, a vengeful god. But once you dust for fingerprints, it’s pretty clear who ruined America: white people. I guess ruining Brooklyn was just a dry run,” Bee said. “The caucasian nation showed up in droves to vote for Trump. So I don’t want to hear a goddamn word about black voter turnout. How many times do we expect black people to build our country for us?”

Bee added, “White people, this is the worst thing we’ve ever— no, I’m sorry, that’s a very high bar. But holy s—, and don’t try to distance yourself from the bad apples and say, ‘It’s not my fault, I didn’t vote for him. Hashtag not all white people.’ Shush. If Muslims have to take responsibility for every member of their community, so do we.”
