Samantha Bee to Eric Schneiderman: 'You Are Trash and We Do Not Need You'

The late night comics have taken a week off from bashing the U.S. President Donald Trump to taking on disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

Four women have stepped forward to accuse the one time most powerful law enforcement officer in the Empire State of committing violence towards them.  Schneiderman claims the acts occurred during consensual sex.

It was just two years ago that Schneiderman took on the Daily Fantasy Sports industry and subsequently crippling it.

Samantha Bee covered the physical abuse allegations levied against Schneiderman and took no prisoners in doing so.

“New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman resigned Monday night after multiple allegations of physical abuse were published in the New Yorker,” Bee said. “This is especially infuriating given his supposed woke bae-ness.”

“Throughout his political career,” the host explained, “Schneiderman positioned himself as a feminist crusader. He championed the #MeToo movement, filed a civil rights lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein, put out pamphlets for victims of domestic violence and helped craft an anti-choking law even though he’s now accused of choking his girlfriend.

“Schneiderman was a guest on my show, so this is a little complicated for me to talk about,” the host added. “Just kidding. It’s not complicated. Fuck you Eric Schneiderman.”
