Sen. Elizabeth Warren joined Samantha Bee on Full Frontal for an interview because Bee was feeling down in the dumps about the Donald Trump presidency. Bee asked, “OK — you’ve spent your whole life fighting for the working class, and the guy who wants to dismantle economic protections for those people actually won. Do you ever feel like, you know what, f*** those people?”
“No” was the defiant answer from Warren, who has had her share of hurdles this year, including being barred from speaking on the Senate floor by Sen. Mitch McConnell. McConnell coined the now-famous phrase, “Nevertheless, she persisted,” in response to Warren continuing to read from a 30-year-old letter by civil rights leader Coretta Scott King.
Warren went on to say, “This is who I am. This is my family. This is how I grew up — and yeah, Donald Trump lied to them, lied to their faces; but the answer is: then point it out, hold them accountable, and offer them something better.”
Full Frontal With Samantha Bee airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. on TBS.
