Samantha Bee: "The Republican Party tolerates anti-Semitism, and benefits from it"

In light of the massacre in a Pittsburgh synagogue on Saturday, Samantha Bee called out President Donald Trump and his Republican Party for using racist dog whistles and promoting anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

"Trump and many other Republicans reacted to the shooting by condemning anti-Semitism always nice when we can agree that some hate crimes are bad," Bee said on Wednesday's episode of "Full Frontal" on TBS. "But the truth is: The Republican Party tolerates anti-Semitism, and benefits from it."

"Mainstream conservatives would never say anything negative about Jewish people outright," the late night host continued. "But there are other words they use like: 'coastal elites,' 'globalists,' 'Hollywood liberals' or 'Jon Leibowitz.'"

Currently, Bee added, "the biggest, loudest dog whistle is George Soros," the billionaire philanthropist and Holocaust survivor, and "Full Frontal" played clip after clip after clip of Soros' name being dropped on Fox News in connection to liberal conspiracy theories.

Soros is best known for starting a foundation called Open Society. However, in right-wing circles, Bee pointed out, he is regarded as a "demonic, Nazi, commie super-villain" who controls well, everything.
