This week's Variety cover story features a profile of and interview with "Full Frontal" host Samantha Bee, who gave her unique reason for despising GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump:

"I waitered for so long that I literally have PTSD from it, and now, when I feel people being unfair to one another — when I feel people negating other people — it takes me right back to that place of having people be so awful to me because I was serving them food," Bee told Variety's Brian Steinberg. "When I see Donald Trump, I think of all the dinners I served at the lobster house."

"Full Frontal" — like most politically-minded late-night shows — leans heavily on Trump criticism, but Bee promised she'd maintain her edge even if his opponent, Hillary Clinton, wins in November.

"If Hillary Clinton is elected, the tsunami of misogyny that will emerge will overtake all of us," she said. "You can see what happened when we had a black president, and you will see the same if she becomes the leader of this nation. I feel there will be no shortage of things for us to talk about."

If, on the other hand, Trump ends up in the Oval Office: "I’m not sure we’ll have a world, so we’ll see."
