Samantha Bee Falsely Calls Coronavirus Response ‘Racist’

Late night talk show host Samantha Bee went on a tirade in the most recent episode of her show, claiming that pointing out the coronavirus’s origin in China is “racist,” as reported by Newsbusters.

Bee referred to numerous media commentators who refer to it as the “Wuhan virus,” in reference to the Chinese city from where the disease originated, or the “Chinese coronavirus.” She commented that “China, we know it’s not your bad,” and then said that Fox News host Brian Kilmeade should “shut the f*** up.”

She then went on to claim that “tying coronavirus to China and Chinese people isn’t just a racist dog whistle, it’s a whole racist orchestra,” before adding “the coronavirus is not an excuse to be racist.”

Bee then said that “racism is like America’s weighted blanket. When everything is stressful, nothing makes us feel more secure than treating other people like trash.”
