Samantha Bee has been, and always will be, the breath of fresh and funny air we need during our low points. And wow are we in the midst of a low point. On November 15th’s episode of Full Frontal, Bee took down “critically acclaimed pervert” Louis C.K. alongside GOP Alabama Senate nominee and accused child molester Roy Moore.
Louis C.K. and Roy Moore are in the same pen these days. The New York Times released an article on November 9th detailing sexual misconduct accusations made by five women against Louis C.K. The famed comedian, who later claimed the stories were true, proves to be yet another corrupt Hollywood power player in the ranks of Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Ed Westwick, and Roy Price, head of Amazon Studios.
Before she touched upon Louis C.K., Bee started off Wednesday night’s show laying into “senatorial candidate and sophomore enthusiast” Roy Moore and his supporters. Moore has recently been accused of attempted rape and engaging in sexual activity with underaged girls but is still in the running for the senate seat and is being backed by fellow Alabaman Republicans.
Behind her, a photo of Louis C.K. appeared on the screen.
Bee notes that important progress has been made within the entertainment industry, but there is still something lacking. She reminds us that everyone in Hollywood is “raving about” Daddy’s Home 2 starring Mel Gibson, who was accused of domestic abuse in 2011.
To prove that Alabama “is better than liberal, sex-crazed Hollywood,” Bee told citizens to register to vote before November 27th in order to vote in the special election. She concluded, “Please prove all of us Yankee assholes wrong about you.”
