The 5 ladies of the Seattle Metropolis Council, who had been attacked by way of misogynistic tweets and emails for a latest vote wherein they sided in opposition to efforts to construct a brand new NBA arena on the town, have a brand new sixth lady on their group who scored mightily on Monday evening. (Heads up! There’s grownup language within the movies.)
Comic Samantha Bee used a section on her TBS present “Full Frontal” to defend the councilwomen in opposition to the Web trolls who went after them for being the 5 in a deciding 5-4 vote in opposition to a SoDo land-vacation measure earlier this month. Bee is a former “Each day Present” correspondent who obtained her personal late-night gig in February.
Monday’s section, known as “The Seattle Seawards” (yup, you get it), featured Bee explaining a bit of of the backstory and the standard Web hate that’s directed towards ladies who trouble to do issues equivalent to run for president, speak about politics on TV or criticize actually any online game. Add to the checklist “ladies who dare stand between a metropolis and its males’s skilled sports activities group,” Bee stated.

“Why did these loopy, sports-hating harpies stand between a city and the group it doesn’t have but?” Bee requested. “Did they wish to construct a ballet arena or a ‘Intercourse and the Cityplex’ or one thing?” The section then launched into footage of the councilwomen explaining what it’s they needed to guard by voting in opposition to the arena plan.
Bee then launched the “seaport-loving savers of delivery jobs” full with nicknames and among the nasty feedback they obtained: Lorena “The Gavel” Gonzalez, Debora “Slam Dunk” Juarez, Lisa “Lay Up” Herbold, Kshama “The Socialist Slasher” Sawant and “Supersonic” Sally Bagshaw.
Bee ended the present by having the Seawards share a number of extra of the names they had been known as and threats they obtained, together with Juarez and her have to “get her ass again within the kitchen.”
