Samantha Bee Reverses the Gender Roles in Donald Trump’s Leaked Video

After a video was released recently of Donald Trump making sexual comments about a woman back in 2005, women are fighting back. One well-known talk show host and comedian, Samantha Bee of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, found a unique way to bring attention to what Trump said in the video. She’s just released her own parody video of the situation, showing what it would be like for a woman to be making comments about men similar to what Trump was overheard saying about a woman.

Cosmopolitan shared the video of the gender-swapped scenario. In it, Bee opens the video saying, “You know what looks a little bit luscious to me… balls.” Another line that is especially noteworthy is Bee’s comment, “I have kind of access to men’s balls,” to which the other woman in the video responds “That’s why I’m on television,” taken almost straight from the conversation between Trump and Billy Bush.

Later in the day, Full Frontal followed up on the video by releasing a parody statement:

In it, they clarify that it was an “off the record” conversation, it was “just classic girl talk,” and that “men should be flattered” by the comments she made. She makes it clear that what Trump said in his “apology” for his actions is not acceptable. Trump clearly will not take responsiblity for his past behavior, as he has shown us again and again during the race towards the 2016 election.
