Comedian Samantha Bee joined Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of The Union” Sunday and claimed that there is no “smug liberal problem” in the U.S.

Bee hosted “Not the White House Correspondents Dinner” on Saturday night as a response to the main event and used the show to mock Trump and praise journalists.

“I’m not talking about you, but is there a smug liberal problem?” Tapper asked his guest.

Bee initially tried to dodge the question, responding, “I just can’t take responsibility for the way the election turned out.”

Tapper pushed back, stating, “You told [Hillary Clinton] not to go to Wisconsin.”

“Is there a smug liberal problem?” Bee said, addressing Tapper’s initial question. “I’m, I guess, you know, I don’t, I don’t think there is.”

Bee went on to explain that she doesn’t care how people receive her show because she does it for “people like me.”

“I do the show for me and people like me and I don’t really care how the rest of the world sees it, quite frankly…We make a show for ourselves.”
