Samantha Bee Interviews Glenn Beck
Samantha Bee is the first one to admit that she never expected to be holding hands with Glenn Beck while wearing an ugly Christmas sweater and talking about how similar they are. But we do live in interesting times.
The Full Frontal host welcomed the conservative commentator onto her show for an interview, and it’s not the trainwreck their respective audiences may have predicted. Bee started the segment pointing out that Beck had been acting weird lately, and by “weird” she meant apologizing for his divisive rhetoric and giving to charities for women and immigrants. And so Bee had him on the show because, in her words, “Because I think that our future is going to require a broad coalition of nonpartisan decency. It’s not just individual people against Donald Trump, it’s all of us against Trumpism.”
Beck agreed and it wasn’t the last time the pair found common ground during the interview. “”My message to you is: Please don’t make the mistakes that I made,” Beck told Bee. “And I think all of us are doing it. We’re doing it on Facebook, we’re doing it on Twitter. We tear each other apart, and we don’t see the human on the other side.”
