Samantha Bee Tears Into GOP’s ‘Shrill’ Impeachment Defense

Samantha Bee got chills when she heard House Democrats finally announce articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump this week. “And not like the bad chills when I saw Taylor Swift’s creepy smooth cat body,” she explained. “The good chills like when I see Idris Elba’s creepy smooth cat body.” 

“Congressional Republicans have decided that the best defense is a loud offense,” the Full Frontal host said, cutting to clips of GOP Congressmen Louie Gohmert, Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz and Kevin McCarthy screaming about how unfair the whole thing is. Bee named this strategy “Kava-noise” after Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, explaining, “That’s when white men who’ve done something awful shout into a camera at us until it goes away.” 

“My god, can you imagine if a woman tried that strategy?” she asked. “I get accused of being shrill even when I’m sleeping. And it wouldn’t work for people of color either. If any of them tried to pull a Louie Gohmert, they’d get swatted by the white ladies filming them at all times.”
