TBS’ Samantha Bee inferred that millionaire NFL athletes were being treated like slaves Wednesday.


“Hey, wow! And what a conversation we’re having! Talking about black people and their owners and how they should be grateful for the privilege of working on a field. Who says Trump is taking us backwards!,” Bee said. (RELATED: Samantha Bee: There Is No ‘Smug Liberal Problem’ [VIDEO])

Bee also attacked Newt Gingrich after he said on Fox News, “If you’re a multi-millionaire who feels oppressed, you need a therapist, not a publicity stunt.”

Bee retortred, “No if you’re a multi-millionaire who feels oppressed, you’re a Fox News personality, and you still need a therapist!”

Samantha Bee also criticized President Trump for supposed hypocrisy on patriotism.

“And, if anyone knows about treating soldiers and first responders with respect, it’s the guy who decided to fire transgender soldiers and deport paramedics who happen to be Dreamers!”
