On this week's "Full Frontal" Samantha Bee took down Donald Trump and the entire Republican Party (yes including Fox News) for playing their tune on the dog whistle of anti-semitism. In particular she brought receipts by playing clip after clip of Fox News going after billionaire George Soros. (In spite of what Louie Gohmert says, it's anti-Semitism.)
Here's some highlights of her riff:
Soros is, per right-wing conspiracy nutjobs, a “demonic Nazi commie supervillain who controls everything from world governments to when people poop.”
“The idea of Jews as wealthy, scheming world-dominators is as old as Mike Pence thinks the earth is.”
“I know Trump has a daughter who’s Jewish...I forget her name – she’s never really come up on the show.”
“But that doesn’t mean he can’t be anti-Semitic. His daughter is also a woman and he sure hates those!”
Sam Bee reminded viewers that right wing xenophobics “don’t traditionally make exceptions for Jewish people." Ya think?
