If one thing was gleaned from the National Republican Convention, it’s that while the party remains divided, millions of "we want Trump"-chanting Americans are still fawning over its umpa-lumpa coloured nominee.
To determine why, Samantha Bee takes her very own campaign bus deep into the Republican heartland to encounter some average Donald Trump voters in a Full Frontal special. What she finds is both hilarious and chilling.
One lady, who refers to herself as a ‘Trump-ette’ tells Bee, “He’s talking to the teenager in all of us which is really awesome because hey, guess what government, we’re really mad at you and we’d really like a change, that would be super awesome if you could do it our way.”
“So what we need is like a teenage tantrum president?” Bee replies bemused.
Finding her own question to ask and answer, the woman enthusiastically continues, “Think back to when you were a teenager, all those adults walking around being hypocrites, that sucks right? Totally!”
Elsewhere Bee’s fellow reporter meets a young man who doesn’t seem to understand the concept of sexism.
“I don’t see it being a smart idea to put a woman in office. I mean, I’m not sexist or anything…” he reasons about Hillary Clinton.
Surprisingly, his girlfriend agrees, and says, “We don’t need a woman as a president, we’re too dramatic!” before proceeding to reveal she’s regularly the victim of sexism in the workplace, but you know, that's life.
