On Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Bee came to the defense of comedian Michelle Wolf, who has been catching flak for, among other things, essentially calling White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders a liar at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. Bee agrees with Wolf that Sanders is indeed a liar, but it seemed as if Bee is equally impressed with Sanders’s lying prowess.
“She is smart. She’s savvy. And she has the eerie ability to make towering falsehoods unwatchably dull,” Bee said. “Sarah Huckabee Sanders is like a public relations Dementor, sucking the energy out of the White House press until they can’t really fight back, turning them into tragic journalistic husks called Maggie Habermans” — Maggie Haberman being a New York Times White House correspondent who has gone after Wolf for her performance.
Bee took issue with the press for its negative reporting of Wolf’s performance and defense of Sanders, as Sanders calls the press liars or fake news on a seemingly daily basis. And Bee had video of several examples proving her point that Sanders deserved the insult.
