TV comedian Samantha Bee has turned on New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman with a vengeance — retracting her past praise in a profane rant against the disgraced former pol.
In the opening monologue on the latest episode of her weekly cable program, “Full Frontal,” Bee went on a coarse tirade that called the domestic abuse allegations against Schneiderman “especially infuriating, given his supposed woke bae-ness.”
“Now, Schneiderman was a guest on my show, so this is a little complicated for me to talk about, but — just kidding, it’s not complicated. F–k you, Eric Schneiderman!” she said, to cheers and applause from the audience.
“No, no, let me say it louder,” Bee interrupted, before repeating the insult with audio reverb added.
Bee also gestured to a video screen with the message printed out in flaming capital letters, flanked by images of two hands flipping the bird.
“The good legal work that you did does not absolve you. It will not give me not one second’s pause about tearing you a new a–hole on television. I give zero f–ks … Eric Schneiderman, you are trash and we do not need you!” she fumed Wednesday night on TBS.
Bee’s foul-mouthed about-face came a day after her show re-labeled an online video clip of an interview last year during which Bee gushed to Schneiderman, “You a superhero!” for opposing President Trump.
The Nov. 8 segment is now titled “Former AG Tricks Sam Into Thinking He Was Decent” on YouTube, where a description notes, “We taped this segment before the allegations against Eric Schneiderman came to light, and we sincerely apologize for characterizing him as a hero when, to so many women, he was the vilest villain.”
