The Daily Show on Wednesday refused to hide its disgust with the outcome of the presidential election.
Flummoxed by the idea that Hillary Clinton, an “experienced politician,” lost to Donald Trump, a “racist, fake gynecologist,” correspondents Michelle Wolf and Hasan Minhaj put voters on blast for electing the former Apprentice host.
Up first, Wolf was nearly brought to tears as she spoke of female voters who decided to cast their ballots for “the guy who said women who get abortions should be punished, who walks in on teen beauty queens changing, [and] who would ‘grab a p—y.”
She then fumed, “It’s not even about not voting for Hillary, it’s about people voting for Donald Trump,” before adding that the latter was “the worst thing to happen to women since yeast.
“We’ve always known that there are some men that are against women,” she continued. “What f—king blew my mind this election is that 42 percent of women voted for Trump… Some of those women didn’t want Hillary to become president because she’s a woman. That’s right: women can be misogynists, too, just proving that women can do anything that men can do — except be president.”
Minhaj, who spoke second, was concerned with just how fast the country seems to have forgotten Trump’s proposal to forbid Muslims from emigrating to the U.S.
“On Dec. 7, 2015, Donald Trump called for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States… Seriously, how is that not instantly disqualifying?” he asked. “Even if that’s not why most people voted for him, open racism should just be a deal breaker. You may not personally be a racist, sexist xenophobe, but that comes with the package… so if you take that deal, what you’re telling me is, ‘Hey man, I don’t hate you. I just don’t care about you.'”
