Samantha Bee Blames ‘Penis Goblins’ for Steve Bannon’s Rise to Power (Video)

“This is the true story of how Steve Bannon brought the alt-right into our world,” she says on “Full Frontal”

Samantha Bee is crediting “penis goblins” for helping Steve Bannon to his current perch as Donald Trump’s chief strategist.

During Wednesday’s “Full Frontal,” Bee took a look at passages from author Joshua Green’s book about Bannon’s rise to prominence, entitled “Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency.”

“This is the true story of how Steve Bannon brought the alt-right into our world,” the host said. “Like a reverse Buffy standing at Hellmouth going, ‘Come on in, demons!'”

Bee referenced Bannon’s previous experience working for a company involved in paying gamers to play “World of Warcraft,” and linked this to his ability to popularize Breitbart.

“He set about turbo-charging the website’s white-populist agenda and ‘f– everyone’ attitude,” she said. Bee added, in reference to the so-called Gamergate flap, “Meanwhile, his beloved penis goblins had discovered a cool, new multiplayer game: coordinated rape threats. So many rape threats.”

“Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET on TBS.
