Two Doctors, One Time Lord: Samantha Bee Brings Geeks To The Brexit
Wednesday, June 29th, 2016 at 5:30 pm
So last week, as everyone in the world seems to know by now, Brexit happened. A portmanteaux of the words Britain and exit, the people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the economic zone of the European Union, or the EU. There are a lot of politics involved in Brexit, but frankly, we’re not so concerned with that.
What we are concerned with is awesome, geeky stuff. And to that end, on her show Full Frontal comedienne Samantha Bee managed to create an incredibly new geeky term, “British Twitter,” and coupled it with one of our favorite imports here at Geeks of Doom, Doctor Who. Not only that, she was able to incorporate not ONE, but TWO of the many faces portraying our favorite Time Lord.
The clip is just over two minutes and will probably make any and all U.S. fans of BBC America laugh — really hard. Try and keep the soda from streaming out of your nose.
She also managed to make fun of Donald Trump, whose mom emigrated to the U.S. from Scotland.
