Samantha Bee thinks Republicans upset over Donald Trump's sexism don't get it: "The comments were wrong because women are human"

On Trump: "Muslim-banning, Mexican-insulting, race-baiting, disability-mocking, alt-right-channeling demagogue"

Samantha Bee wants everyone to fear the "P."

The "Full Frontal" host called out Hillary-hating Republicans Monday night — including Ted Cruz — who continued to support Donald Trump, even as the presidential nominee removed any doubt that he was a misogynist in the wake of "Pussy-ghazi."

"A whole lot of Republicans were grappling with the discovery that their Muslim-banning, Mexican-insulting, race-baiting, disability-mocking, alt-right-channeling demagogue might not be such a good guy after all," said Samantha Bee.

Bee berated members of the Republican Party who still supported Trump — like vice presidential nominee Mike Pence and Sen. Mitch McConnell — but lambasted the fact that they denounced Trump by saying they themselves are the fathers, brothers and sons of actual human women.

"Trump's comments are not wrong because you have female relatives," said Bee, noting that 100 percent of Americans have female relatives. "Trump's comments were wrong because women are human and if you hadn't stood cravenly by while he insulted them for a year, then you wouldn't be in the pile of elephant shit you are today."

Bee also called Paul Ryan a "pussy" for not standing by his "convictions."

The segment also featured Republican strategist and CNN contributor Ana Navarro, who had reacted to Trump's "locker room talk" in a Saturday segment from CNN by yelling at Scottie Nell Hughes when she was asked not to use the word "pussy" because her daughter was listening: "You know what Scottie? Don't tell me you're offended when I say pussy, but you're not offended when Donald Trump says it!" an enraged Navarro had said, pointing to the camera.

"We're almost looking forward to you and Susana Martinez defeating Hillary in 2020. At least you'll be an adversary worthy of her," Bee said, addressing Navarro.
