As Samantha Bee and other late-night hosts have pointed out, President Trump’s New York jet flyover demonstration in celebration of essential workers this week may not have been the best way to support them.
On her at-home edition of Full Frontal — filmed in front of a greenscreened forest background and hilariously titled Little Show in the Big Woods — Bee addressed Trump’s undermining of one especially essential service during this time: the U.S. Postal Service.
“Look, I know it’s hard to get excited about the Postal Service, because it’s just always there, quietly doing its job,” she said. “But the Postal Service is hot as hell! How hot? I mean, the workers wear knee shorts. They give it to us in the rain, sleet and snow. And it’s the only federal agency built entirely on the principle of licking stuff.”
