That is how Samantha Bee put it on her night-time show. She slammed the ex-candidates for backtracking on their criticisms of Trump, including the support voiced by Paul Ryan. Snippets here are from the Daily Beast coverage.
The host of TBS’s Full Frontal, which has fast become essential late-night viewing on a par with her former Daily Show colleague John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight, ran a special segment on the eve of the final state primaries called, “2016 Primaries: What the F**k Happened?”
[The] “last domino” was House Speaker Paul Ryan, the de facto face, voice, and abs of the Republican Party, who recently said he’d be endorsing Trump—despite the fact that he’d been very critical of him in the past, including branding the real estate heir’s Muslim travel ban “not conservatism” and “not what this party stands for.”
“He’s right! Trump isn’t what Republicans stand for,” said Bee, “he’s what they bend over for.”
Democrats were not spared ...
“We are one day away from knowing who the nominees are and six months away from the Sanders camp accepting the results,” announced Samantha Bee Monday night.
... but the spineless bunch of shape-shifters now defining the "party of Lincoln and Reagan" were the real targets of the show.
