Taking a page out of Chris Matthews’s playbook, Full Frontal host Samantha Bee devoted the second segment of her show Wednesday to declaring war on Vice President Mike Pence; who would become President if the liberal goal of President Trump’s impeachment and removal from office comes to fruition. Bee had a particular beef with Pence’s pro-life voting record and his failure to implement Planned Parenthood’s agenda at the Department of Health and Human Services.
After playing a clip of a talking head accusing Pence of trying to “remake women’s reproductive healthcare in the United States,” Bee declared “It’s a bit less that Pence is remaking women’s health care as much as it is sending it back to the 1600s.” Bee also accused the Vice President of turning the Department of Health and Human Services into “his own personal Stepford Department” and described him as “the absolute scariest person to be calling the shots at this agency.” Pence’s voting record before joining the Trump administration appeared to horrify Bee most of all; she labeled him “one of the most radical anti-choice Congressmen ever to hold office.”
Eventually, the host began taking shots at the actual HHS Secretary, Alex Azar, for “revamping HHS’s Title X funding in order to strip Planned Parenthood of funding” and “pumping money into faith-based and abstinence organizations like Obria.” Bee made it clear she did not approve of Obria’s declaration that “reproductive decisions should prioritize the couple ‘as opposed to the needs and desires of the woman as an individual,’” responding to that line of thinking by reciting a slightly altered version of the left-wing, pro-choice slogan “my body, my choice.”
Citing the high number of people working at the Department of Health and Human Services with ties to the state of Indiana and/or Vice President Pence, Bee gleefully referred to HHS as “the Indiana mafia.” She proceeded to trash the team at HHS as “the most f***ed up group to come out of Indiana that wasn’t formed by Joe Jackson.”
The TBS host spent the rest of her monologue trashing a variety of initiatives spawned by HHS and the Trump administration, including the “Conscience and Religious Freedom Division.” Bee concluded that “Mike Pence doesn’t give a sh** that a godless President is disgracing his party because, if anything, it gives him the room and influence to do what he cares about most: gutting reproductive healthcare and protections for trans people.”
Bee’s pro-choice rant against the Department of Health and Human Services came just hours after CBS gleefully reported on the opening of a “ginormous” new Planned Parenthood facility in Missouri. Regardless of which party controls the White House, the abortion lobby can always count on the supposedly “objective” media as well as liberals masquerading as comedians to go to bat for them.
