Samantha Bee Warns America to Learn from Brexit — Don't Let Donald Trump Become President

Following the United Kingdom's vote to leave the European Union, parallels were drawn between the Brexit vote and presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Essentially, if the U.K. were foolish enough to leave the EU, could America actually put Trump in office? 

While the latest poll numbers suggest otherwise, Samantha Bee issued a stern warning to the United States on Monday's Full Frontal, in wake of the Brexit vote. 

"The Brexit vote was driven by angry, less educated, older white voters who feel screwed by globalization and the establishment and have been fed a chip butty of xenophobia slathered in slogan sauce," Bee said. "Even a brain-damaged baboon couldn't miss the parallels between the U.S. and Britain."

Bee continued by making more comparisons between the political figures in each country; former London Mayor Boris Johnson is a Trump equivalent; U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, who will step down following the vote, is the country's version of House Speaker Paul Ryan. 

However, the most indicting part of the Brexit vote, Bee posits, are the increasingly racist comments after the result — many of which she notes can be found with the hashtag #PostRefRacism at your own discretion.

"The vote made these hateful morons think that over half the country agreed with them," she says. "This is why it's not enough for Trump to lose. It has to be a fucking landslide.

"Trump's brand of right-wing, racist, anti-immigrant demagoguery isn't American. It's a European import. And if we're smart, we'll stop it at the border and send it back where it came from."
