Samantha Bee: Kellyanne Conway Is the Supergirl of Deflecting Questions

Samantha Bee on Wednesday took a moment to thank Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway for both changing history and possibly ending it.

In a scathing takedown, the Full Frontal host explained why Trump’s “omnipresent spokescobra” wasn’t being celebrated by feminists as the first woman to run a successful presidential campaign.

“Oh my god, you guys, it’s so unfair,” Bee said sarcastically. “A woman pulls off the historic feat of electing a sexual predator who thinks women should be punished for having abortions and feminists don’t celebrate her with a Vogue cover.”

Bee then turned her attention to Conway’s history of “fighting for, and/or against women’s rights,” pointing out that she once spoke about against PBS cartoon Arthur for including a child with two moms, and a speech she gave at a Women’s Conservative Network gathering where she argued that “looking feminine” was a more important attribute to women in the workplace than their feminist ideologies.

“As racists who don’t feel like racists keep telling us, we should never judge anyone by what they say or do, but only by what’s in their heart,” she explained, all while standing in front of a picture of a man in an “All Lives Matter” t-shirt. “And I know Kellyanne doesn’t believe those homophobic, sexist things in her heart because Kellyanne doesn’t believe anything in her heart. She will say literally anything.” Bee then cut to a series of clips where Conway spoke out against Trump just weeks before she was hired as his campaign manager, criticizing the president-elect for all of the “unpresidential” things she now defends him for in various TV interviews.

After suggesting that “Kellyanne’s true super power is deflecting questions like Supergirl deflects bullets,” Bee broke down Conway’s winning strategy, which is to “smile, take the question, don’t answer it [and] complain about Hillary Clinton.” She then said that Conway’s ability to adhere to this formula while Trump blurts out “fake news” whenever he’s unsatisfied with a reporter’s inquiry suggests that she’s more qualified to be president than her boss.

“Kellyanne is the soulless, Machiavellian despot America deserves, not this undisciplined, hobbit-handed omni-shambles,” Bee argued. “Lean in, bitch. You’re the one with superpowers. You changed history and also possibly ended it. So… welcome to the hall of fame. If you’d like to pick up your award, it’ll be behind our studio in the alley where women will be getting their abortions a year from now. Thanks for everything.”

    Love it. Proof that Kellyanne is nothing more than a paid mouth piece who will sell her soul, if she had one, to the highest bidder. Anyone who can lie like she does has no character whatsoever in my book.

    • Patrick says:

      The correct term is prostitute. She is prostitute, selling herself to the highest bidder.

      • Scott says:

        Your a jerk for calling her that

        • A fan of TV says:

          *You’re.

          We’re all jerks. So is she. It’s how we got to where we are in political discourse.

          In reality, though, she has sold herself for a never-ending pack of lies. That’s prostitution without the sex.

    • Scott says:

      Mary your a typical liberal you lose so you have to insult people you dont Agree with . Well get over it loser

      • JScout says:

        Scott – Learn some grammar and punctuation, not that it will help with your comments.

      • Steven says:

        Nothing Mary said is a lie.

      • A fan of TV says:

        Lol. Your willful blindness to the reality that the right loves words like Libtard, loves calling people loser, etc says a lot more about you than us lefties ;)

      • Mary says:

        I know reality hurts but nothing in my statement was a lie. Do a little research and see where she stood when Cruz was her guy. Calling me a liberal doesn’t change the facts, so I think you need to get over it. You voted for the clueless TV Reality man who is out for himself and she is his paid b…h.

      • John says:

        The problem with people like Scott is that they refuse to see any other side. They won’t even entertain it. When you are unwilling to even listen to other difference of opinions…it’s all over. P.S. Scott – you’re sentence totally contradicts itself…you scold her for insulting people…and then turn around and call her a loser. How do you not see it?

  2. Georgia Madman says:

    Boo Hoo. The soulless woman is Hillary Clinton. She sold it a long time ago and now that she doesn’t have anything left to sell, they’re shutting down the Clinton Foundation. But we’ll still have to endure four years of Samantha’s whining.

    • Steven says:

      This isn’t about Hillary. More deflecting!

    • Mary says:

      Wow you sound just like Kellyanne, deflecting because you cannot come up with a logical denial with Trump’s BS. The election is over and we have to endure 4 years of the uneducated like yourself trying to justify his words and actions or at least until he is impeached.

      • Scott says:

        Your a crying little liberal with no facts to back up 90% of your arguments. So be good liberal and shut up

        • JScout says:

          It’s you’re, not your. The apostrophe replaces the missing letter(s). Did you go to school?

        • Mary says:

          Wow what is the matter, have you been slapped in the face with reality about your “golden boy”. I believe this is still America and I am free to voice my opinion so be a good little sheep and go follow the herd.

        • Sara says:

          Unfortunately for you Scott there are facts to back up the argument….you just refuse to acknowledge them….because they won’t serve your purpose. There is literally video evidence….and yet you still refuse it. I honestly think if God came down and handed you evidence you would still call it lies.

    • JScout says:

      Deflection alert. Georgia – try to say something good (and true) about Kellyanne as that is the subject here.

    • A fan of TV says:

      Nearly everyone in politics lacks a soul. It’s the shills who really ruin discourse, governance, etc. Pretending that list does not include Conway or Trump, Tillerson et al is evidence that those who elected these tools had no idea what they were actually buying into. Sad!

    • Rex the Wonder Dog says:

      “smile, take the question, don’t answer it [and] complain about Hillary Clinton.”

  3. rob horine says:

    Ms. Bee, you are the epitome of FAKE NEWS!

    • Greg says:

      Uhhh… sorry but name one thing she said in that piece that wasnt true? Looks like you have gone to the trump school of deflecting.

      • Mary says:

        Yes like Trump everyone is fake news when they talk negative about him. He graduated from Trump University and must of not asked for his money back.

    • Kelly says:

      Whatever makes you feel good about yourself buddy. Cause that’s what it’s all about…you.

  4. Collette says:

    IMO SB is a disgusting pill in the same class as Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham and Chelsea Handler.

  5. Natalie says:

    Thank you! Kellyanne Conway is a disgusting pretend human being. She & Ann Coulter should have to live together on an island so they can kill each other & save the rest of the sane world from their crap.

    • Colby says:

      Ah, so she’s a “pretend human being” now. I’m trying to remember what usually happens when a person or group is dehumanized by others, especially when it’s done by people in power (usually the government) or people with notoriety…. I mean, you’re probably outraged because you believe that Trump did the same thing, right? Perhaps you think that he should be held to a higher standard—and I don’t entirely disagree. But on this issue in particular, everyone should be held to the same standard. Dehumanizing anyone is wrong, no matter who does it. It’s ridiculous to say that Ms. Conway isn’t a real person, or isn’t a real woman (which is also a popular—albeit ridiculous and harmful—criticism) because of what she believes. Or, according to Samantha Bee, what she says but doesn’t believe. Criticize her policies and/or her statements. Convince me that your way is the better way. Don’t tell me that I shouldn’t listen to Trump or Kellyanne Conway because they’re not really human. That just makes you look desperate. Plus, I’m not interested in agreeing with someone who wishes death on people they don’t like. Seems creepy. You do you, I guess.

      • Steven says:

        The trouble is it’s not what she “believes”. It’s what she’s paid to believe. Also who exactly are you trying to equate Kellyanne too? A slave? The Jews? Either way that is terribly offensive and not at all the same thing.

    • Scott says:

      No you should go on that island and they can get rid of you .

  6. larry says:

    LIberals are such sad and pathetic people. Bee is a clown, nothing more……..

    • Mary says:

      Wow the reality must hit close to home for some of you. Sad and Pathetic are the ones who refuse to acknowledge what is in front of their eyes.

  7. Douglas from Brazil says:

    I hope Trump to deport her.

  8. You can’t stump Conway. Bee can’t handle that

  9. Notice how the only hosts that down America are foreigners like Bee, Noah, Maher, Oliver

    Stay the hell out if you don’t like things here

  10. Mollymoo says:

    Why do we laud people who respond to disagreements by insulting others? It’s on both “sides” and it’s beyond pathetic.

  11. JScout says:

    Impeach Vladimir Trump. Come on Republicans, you know you’re going to do it. Go ahead a start now.

    • Mary says:

      I think they already have it in the works. Personally after listening to some of these hearings I believe that Pence and the transition team picked most of these candidates. I guess that is what happens when a clueless man gets elected.

  12. A fan of TV says:

    Why anyone lets her get away with not answering questions is beyond me. She’s a skilled snake, but she’s also as transparent as they come. Hold her feet to the fire. So what if she never wants to do another interview with you – eventually, she’ll have made enough ‘no more access for you’ decisions that there won’t be anyone left to report what she does spin. It’s well past time for reporters to quantify her responses with ‘she chose not to answer the questions asked and instead reiterated the same talking points that got her client elected.’ Stop reporting her fake answers and spin, and stop accepting interview opportunities with her.

    • Mary says:

      I know right. The media shouldn’t even waste their time and effort because it is the same thing and will continue to be repetitive. Maybe they should do a 24 to 48 hour blackout and not say his name once, that would drive him batty. We all know how much he loves himself.

  13. Q says:

    “Kellyanne Conway” is just another name for “trainwreck in lots of makeup”. She’s crazy as hell and not even trying to get saner so she’s a perfect fit for the incoming president. God help us.

  14. Swear says:

    Didn’t know this website was becoming a political site, instead a site on television news….

    • Rex the Wonder Dog says:

      When a failed reality TV show host gets elected president, what can you expect? How is that not TV news?

  15. marc bionda says:

    You liberals are a joke and just don’t get it..Deflecting questions? You voted for a corrupt woman who REFUSED to answer any questions under oath on Benghazi, her emails, lied about EVERYTHING, even things that were pathological, like being under sniper fire?Lmao, you just refuse to see the evidence about what a corrupt evil woman she was. Trump made lewd comments, but he did not say THAT HE GRABBED WOMEN’S PRIVATE PARTS, he said when you are a star, you can..Hillary was married to a rapist of women, YES A RAPIST, and she covered for him. You liberals are all “everybody gets a trophy, entitled sore losers”. We had to put up with 8 years of Obama’s lies, and unconstitutional actions, along with watching him give billions of dollars to a terrorist nation that calls for the death of Israel and America. Samantha Bee needs to go back to the trailer park she looks like she crawled out of, and she wishes that she had a fraction of the ability and class of the woman she is trashing. Seriously, watch the full TESTIMONY of Hillary in front of Trey Gowdy, and just maybe you’ll see what diverting from answering questions really means! Samantha Bee is so pathetic that she can’t come up with any new material, her whole show is covering for Hillary and other dem’s, and bashing Trump…Go ahead, I gave you the hard truth as to why you dem’s lost the whitehouse, now pick apart my grammar, since you have nothing factual to say! You morons spoiled cry babies need pacifiers!

  16. Sharyn says:

    Samantha knows what she’s talking about. She is right on the money and I love that she’s there to be able to give some comedy along with such horrifying news for the Americans. But the comedy is accurate Fair it needs to be said. Thanks Sam

  17. Sharyn says:

    Just a thought I believe kellyanne is in love with Donald Trump. Have you ever really watch the way or saw the way she acts around these guys like a teenager. Well done Samantha.
