Samantha Bee on Wednesday urged viewers not to get caught up in the apparent conscience developed by Republicans who helped President Donald Trump encourage last week’s riot by his supporters on the U.S. Capitol.
They are just doing “the bare minimum at the last minute to save their own skins,” said the host of “Full Frontal”.
Bee then suggested that “whether they distance themselves” from Trump “now or not, the Republicans who cheered on this angry mob have blood on their hands.”
“And that cannot be taken away by a last minute mea culpa,” she added. “If we don’t hold these assholes accountable now, then it will inevitably happen again.”
