Samantha Bee and Glenn Beck joined together Monday night in the fight against “Trumpism.”

During Monday’s episode of TBS’s “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” Bee spoke with the conservative commentator about the current political atmosphere.

“My audience is going to think that I am crazy for sitting down with you,” Bee said, to start the conversation.

Throughout the segment, Beck and Bee appeared mortified to find themselves on the same political side — what they called “catastrophists” worried about the effects of a Trump presidency. Still, Bee said she had Beck on the show because of a need for a “broad coalition of nonpartisan decency.”

“It’s not just individual people against Donald Trump, it’s all of us against Trumpism,” Bee said.

Beck explained he agreed to be on Bee’s show because, after years of criticizing liberals and President Obama, he doesn’t want to do any more “damage.”

“Please don’t make the mistakes that I made,” Beck said. “And I think all of us are doing it. We’re doing it on Facebook, we’re doing it on Twitter. We tear each other apart and we don’t see the human on the other side.”

Beck’s appearance on “Full Frontal” comes as part of his pivot towards the mainstream media, as he’s sat for interviews with both the New York Times and the New Yorker. Beck’s The Blaze media network laid off staffers during 2016 as his opposition to Trump’s presidential bid put him at odds with some other conservative media figures.
