Samantha Bee aired her first ever "Trump-positive" piece Wednesday night, and no, this isn't a joke.
The "Full Frontal" host described the surprising segment as her first and last pro-Trump story, stemming from a recent trip she took to Iraqi Kurdistan, where she visited female soldiers and refugee camps, and even met a family whose child was named after Trump.
"While our media are finding ways not to say Steve Bannon sucks his own c-ck, our troops are kicking ISIS' ass with help from our allies the Kurds," Bee said. "Most Americans couldn't find Kurdistan on a map, but for once it's not because we're dumb," Bee said, explaining it's likely because the Kurds are "the largest ethnic group in the world without their own country."
The most surprising thing Bee learned on her trip was how much the Kurdsish people actually love Trump. After meeting the family who named their child after Trump, a confused Bee said, "Huh? What is going on here? Do the Kurds really like President Muslim ban more than they like President Muslim?"
"They love Trump," she said. "OK. Are we in the middle of making Samantha Bee's first, and probably last ever, Trump-positive field piece? Why do the Kurds love our first WWE president so much? Why are they the only people outside of Russia that his presidency gives hope to?"
There is a reason that the Kurds might be Trump's biggest fans, though. Bee explained that Trump is the first ever U.S. president to directly arm the Kurdish people in their fight against ISIS.
But Bee is a little doubtful in their alliance with POTUS.
"But the Kurds are aware that President Four Loko is just using them as mercenaries in the war against ISIS, right?" she asked.
"The Kurds aren't stupid,” Bee said. "Surely they know Trump changes his mind more often than he changes communications directors. Why would people who've endured so much instability trust our least stable president?"
