Samantha Bee Flawlessly Breaks Down the Comey Firing on ‘Full Frontal’ (Video)

”A shockwave bombshell earthquake! Oh how I pity anybody in the DC area who was baking a soufflé when the news broke,“ she says

On Wednesday night’s edition of “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee,” the host didn’t even need to make any jokes as she broke down the immediate aftermath of FBI Director James Comey’s firing on Tuesday.

In her (now apparently frequent) segment “Our Weekly Constitution: What the F— Is It This Time,” Bee laid out how the news media and members of the White House reacted following the “shocking” news, as many reporters described it.

“A shockwave bombshell earthquake! Oh how I pity anybody in the DC area who was baking a soufflé when the news broke,” she quipped.

Bee then ran down the — let’s be honest, unbelievable — series of events that followed the Comey firing. The termination letter was hand-delivered to FBI headquarters, but Comey was in Los Angeles and heard about his firing on the news. Then news choppers followed him down the highway in what Bee called “in a weird echo of the O.J. case.”

Back over to Washington, Press Secretary Sean Spicer was hiding in the bushes because “he’d rather get Lyme disease then talk to the press,” as Bee put it.

THEN the media started comparing the situation to when President Nixon fired the special prosecutor looking into the Watergate scandal. The comparisons would be tenuous at best until Henry Kissinger showed up sitting in a chair next to President Trump.

How he got there nobody knows, but as Bee speculated, “He never left! He’s been trapped in the dumbwaiter all these years.”

Despite most of the segment being taken up with the sheer amount of news that came out of the termination, Bee found time to put in her two cents.

“I don’t like James Comey, nobody does,” Bee said. “Comey’s a bit of a turd. But at least he’s an independent turd.”

“This president has wiped his ass with the Constitution so many times the National Archives started leaving passive-aggressive notes asking him to chip in for toilet paper,” she added.
