Sam Bee Just Savaged “Future President” Mike Pence At Mock Correspondents’ Dinner

In this disturbing, if amusing clip, Samantha Bee roasts “future president Mike Pence” for his Christian extremism and his virulent misogyny.

Styled in a dystopian future clearly inspired by Margaret Atwood’s seminal work The Handmaid’s Tale, which has recently been turned into a television special on Hulu, a dour Bee opens by thanking President Pence “for allowing me this rare exception to the no-woman-chatter in public law.”

She goes on to skewer the notorious bigot for his advocacy for gay conversion therapy and his constant slut-shaming. “It’s so nice that we can finally stop demonizing immigrants and minorities and focus on the real enemy: gay children.”

Her dark comedy is tempered by the fact that the dystopia she imagines is not too far from the realm of possibility.
