Donald Trump has only been in office for less than two weeks, but between picking fights with Australia over Twitter, whining about Senators who disagree with him, and having his cronies spew "alternative facts" to the media, he had a little left over time to sign a whole bunch of executive orders. The most controversial by far has been Trump's travel ban that blocks people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States or obtaining visas. But for the sake of not getting sued for violating the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution, the Trump Administration won't explicitly call it a Muslim ban, even though the POTUS doesn't seem to care what you call it.

Samantha Bee tore into the Muslim ban on Wednesday's episode of Full Frontal, separating her attack into two separate segments; one called "The Not-A-Muslim-Ban Muslim Ban" and the other titled "Refugees Refused." She teased the segment on Twitter prior to the episode airing.

For at least 90 days, visas will not be issued to nationals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen, despite the fact that no foreign-born persons from those seven countries have executed a lethal terrorist attack on American soil since 1975. Although many on Trump's team are struggling with what to call this very obviously bigoted ban, Rudy Giuliani admitted in an interview with Jeanine Pirro of Fox News that Trump did intend to discriminate against Muslims in particular, confessing that Trump asked him how to "legally" go about banning them (i.e: giving the ban a different name like a "travel ban" as to not get sued by human rights groups), because banning someone due to their religion is illegal and violates the Constitution. Right Vice President Pence?

Bee also addressed the refusal of refugees who are fleeing their home countries and seeking asylum elsewhere as a matter of survival.

Samantha Bee went on to call the refusal of refugees "immoral, embarrassing and inhuman," comparing it to the shameful act of turning away Jewish refugees from the United States in 1940's. She ended the segment by calling out "giant pussy" Donald Trump with this message: "You want a Muslim ban? We know you do, so say it already. Own your pointless cruelty. That is why America voted for you … except for the majority of America that didn’t."
