Samantha Bee Teams Up With ‘Fellow Nasty Woman’ Madeleine Albright to Tackle Misogyny in Politics (Video)

TBS late-night comedian asks female leaders from around the world to share their experiences with misogyny

Samantha Bee teamed up with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, a.k.a. a “fellow nasty woman,” to explore misogyny female politicians face in the United States and abroad.

According to Albright, “men are afraid of women,” and Bee found no shortage of video evidence to prove Hillary Clinton’s opponent Donald Trump and his supporters unleashed an array of sexist attacks on the Democratic presidential candidate this election.

“When Mr. Trump talks about her in terms of her voice or her looks, I think he thinks he’s being subtle. I don’t think he’s being subtle,” Albright said. “It kind of gives permission to others to if not say it, think it.”

Bee then met up with several other foreign female leaders, including Norway Prime Minister Erna Solberg, Chile President Michelle Bachelet and Croatia President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, to see if they faced similar challenges from the male population in their countries.

“I have seen some misogyny come down, but not disappear,” Bachelet said, explaining a male president showing emotion in public would be considered “sensitive,” but tears streaming down her cheek in public would make her look “hysterical.”

President Grabar-Kitarovic shared another misogynistic phenomenon: Her face being photoshopped on pictures of Ice T’s wife Cocoa in a bikini. Or even worse, a fake porn.

“There are instances when it becomes just outrageous,” she said. “When I google my name, I see all sorts of photos that are not me, especially bathing suits, it makes you feel like an object.”

Watch the video above, and keep a look out for a quick cameo from Cocoa, herself.
