Late-Night Lately: Colbert Persona Returns, Samantha Bee's Ode to Kellyanne Conway, Seth Meyers' Inauguration “Closer Look”
On Wednesday’s show, Full Frontal host Samantha Bee devoted a segment to the first American woman to run a successful presidential campaign. “Tonight we want to celebrate a truly special female woman, Donald Trump’s omnipresent spokescobra, Kellyanne Conway.”
Conceding that Conway’s “amazing at her job,” Bee decided that “tonight, we honor her.”
“Kellyanne did turn Trump’s upended Porta Potty of a campaign around and get him elected pretty much single-handedly while raising four children and probably being interrupted every three minutes by the alpha bro jockstraps Trump likes to surround himself with.”
Before Trump hired her for his campaign, Conway spoke on television networks about Trump and his “unpresidential” behavior until “she sang a different tune,” according to Bee. “But Kellyanne’s true superpower is deflecting questions like Supergirl deflects bullets,” said Bee, showing interviews with Conway avoiding endless queries about Trump’s tweeting.
Bee’s advice to Trump was to take more lessons from Conway’s network interviews. “Have you learned nothing from Kellyanne? Smile, take the question, don’t answer it, complain about Hillary Clinton. It’s not a difficult formula!”
