Hours after the U.K. voted to leave the European Union, Donald Trump arrived in Scotland and praised its people for their Brexit decision.
“They took their country back, just like we will take America back,” he tweeted.
Apparently no one told Trump before that tweet that every region of Scotland voted to remain in the E.U. — but there were plenty of angry Scots ready to tell him afterwards. Trump’s mentions were loaded with attacks from Scottish tweeters, something that Samantha Bee noticed during her segment on Brexit during Monday’s “Full Frontal.”
So Bee brought in the Scottish star of “Broadchurch” and the man formerly known as the Tenth Doctor, David Tennant, to read out the most scathing tweets that Scots launched at Trump, including one that called him a “ludicrous tangerine ballbag.” Tennant suppressed his Scottish accent during his run on “Doctor Who,” which makes his enunciation of the colorful insults all the more delightful.
Unfortunately, when Bee asked Tennant if there was any way to fix Brexit with the TARDIS, the Doctor revealed that the vote was a fixed point in time. Curse you, wibbly wobbly timey wimey.
Tennant is currently filming the third and final season of “Broadchurch,” which is set to air on ITV and BBC America in 2017.
