While Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton had a successful Tuesday with the five states voting in the primaries, there was one issue with her victory speech, according to male pundits: She didn't smile enough. MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough was the headlined instigator, directing in a tweet that the former Secretary of State "smile" after her "big night." 

Samantha Bee — host of the new TBS late night show Full Frontal — didn't agree with Scarborough's slight. In response, the comedian has started a #SmileForJoe campaign on Full Frontal's Twitter, beginning with a photo of herself frowning, coupled with the caption: "Ladies, it's very important that you #SmileForJoe."

Now, Bee is retweeting similar photos from other women directed at the MSNBC host.
