Samantha Bee is calling out former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows for his “gossipy” text messages about overturning the results of the 2020 presidential election. During Thursday’s episode of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, the late night host delighted in Meadows’ 2,000-plus text messages, which he handed over to the House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection.
“More than 2,000 text messages! This proves definitively that Mark Meadows is a gossipy little bitch,” Bee said gleefully. “Some of the most damning texts came on election day, like when Fox News host Sean Hannity promised Meadows he would push his listeners to get Trump elected.”
While Meadows was receiving “damning” texts on election day, even more messages came after, Bee said, telling her listeners, “In the days after the election, Mark Meadows’ phone kept blowing up in a group text that included villains such as Ivanka Trump, Hope Hicks, Jared Kushner and Jason Miller.”
She quipped, “In other words, they were basically only missing Jafar and Ursula the Sea Witch.”
Bee also dug into the specifics of Meadows’ texts, including a message from congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene — who is currently being sued by some of her constituents over her involvement in the Jan. 6 attack — in which she urged Meadows to have Donald Trump “declare Marshall law.”
Bee told her audience, “if you’re thinking, ‘that’s not how you spell martial law,’ you are very correct,” before joking, “Marshall’s Law, as everyone knows, is that no one should pay retail prices for quality yoga pants.”
While she found plenty of enjoyment in the thousands of texts that had already been disclosed, Bee said Meadows was sitting on even more: “It’s also hard to paint the whole picture when we don’t have the whole picture. There are more than 1,000 texts Meadows refuses to turn over. Damn! Mark Meadows, you are messy. Delete my number!”
Full Frontal with Samantha Bee airs Thursdays at 10/9c on TBS.
