Sam Bee's Show Trolls Sean Spicer With 'Shawshank Redemption' Goodbye

"Sean Spicer crawled to freedom through five hundred yards..."

Samantha Bee’s “Full Frontal” show has likened Sean Spicer’s escape from the Trump administration to a scene from “The Shawshank Redemption.”

After the news broke on Friday that Spicer had quit as White House press secretary, Bee’s team tweeted this gif of the movie’s main character Andy Dufresne (played by Tim Robbins), basking in the glory of his new found freedom following a prison break:

“Sean Spicer crawled to freedom through five hundred yards of shit smelling foulness I can’t even imagine,” they captioned the gif, after slightly tweaking a line voiced by Morgan Freeman’s character Red.

“Full Frontal” later used a puppet and lyrics from the Tears for Fears track “Mad Mad World” to further mock Spicer, before giving the doll a Viking-style burial at sea.
