But, as Samantha Bee reminded us on Wednesday’s Full Frontal, they’re screwed, too. Because while a Donald Trump presidency is perhaps only viscerally dangerous for some, it is bad for everyone. In her words, “What we did was the democratic equivalent of installing an above-ground pool. Even if we’re lucky and it doesn’t seep into our foundation, the neighbors will never look at us the same way again.” Bee has a lot more to say on the subject, as well as a very apt finger to point, which you can watch above. Meanwhile, if you need us, we’ll just be over here making guttural moans.
