Samantha Bee on "basket of deplorables" flap: "Hillary Clinton is the only woman I know who can trip over her own d**k"

"Don't alienate the deplorables," Bee advised. "You can't win a four-way race with just plorables"

"Full Frontal" host Samantha Bee returned from hiatus to weigh in on Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's inability to generate positive headlines.

"I swear to God, Hillary Clinton is the only woman I know who can trip over her own dick," Bee responded to Clinton's "basket of deplorables" comment. "Did your team just decide, 'Hey, nothing else is working, why don't we try insulting Americans into voting for her?'"

"When you see 'grossly generalistic' in the prompter," she advised Clinton, "that's when you take a breath and think, do I want to keep talking? You don't barge ahead and torpedo your campaign with a dumb, dumb remark — that's Bill's job."
