Samantha Bee Gets Real In Her Conversation With Glenn BeckDecember 20, 2016
"Full Frontal" host Samantha Bee isn't shy about her political leanings. She's a well-known liberal firebrand, and she frequently and graphically insults Republican lawmakers, conservative news correspondents and especially Donald Trump. Pair that with Glenn Beck, whose rise to fame was through his emotional, divisive, highly conservative show on Fox News, and you've got a recipe for a full-on brawl.
But instead, the two had a surprisingly civil (though intense) conversation about divisive politics in the U.S. and the importance of seeing political rivals as human beings.
When Beck asked why Bee would invite him onto her show, she said, "Because I think that our future is going to require a broad coalition of nonpartisan decency."
A sentiment he seemed to agree with. In fact, he said a part of why he wanted to sit down with her was his own regrets about the extremity of his show.
"I helped divide," Beck said. "Please don't make the mistakes that I made."
