Facing the reality of what went wrong Tuesday night has not been fun. Millions of us spent all day Wednesday trying to figure out what happened. How did we get here?? I have a few theories and Samantha Bee took the words right out of my mouth on her special post-election episode of Full Frontal.
“It’s pretty clear who ruined America — White people! I guess ruining Brooklyn was just a dry run. The Caucasian Nation showed up in droves to vote for Trump so I don’t want to hear a goddamn word about black voter turnout. How many times do we expect black people to build our country for us? White people, this is the worst.
And don’t try to distance yourself and say #notallwhitepeople,” she continued. “If Muslims have to take responsibility for every member of their community, so do we. Oh, does that feel awful? Yeah. 63 percent of white men said ‘If I can’t be in charge, burn it down!’ And a majority of white women faced with the historic choice between a female and a vial of weaponized testosterone said, ‘I’ll take option B. I just don’t like her.’
Hope you got your stickers, ladies. Way to lean out!”
At the end of her segment, Bee points out a few good things that happened on Tuesday. Many women of all races and religions have succeeded in breaking their own glass ceilings in this election, and while it’s not nearly enough – at least it’s a start, and it’s something we can hold onto for now.
