Comedienne and television host, Samantha Bee, is planning to attend the Women's March on Washington.

According to Bee, she will not be taking her show, Full Frontal, on the road with her to the capital of the United States of America.
"We have rented a bus for people who want to go and we're just going," said Bee during a recent interview with CNN. "We're not going to do anything there. We're going because we as individuals want to go and just be there for it."

Bee sees the march -- a post-inauguration rally expected to draw up to 200,000 -- as a "just a day [to be] a good citizen."


According to Bee, her show staff and correspondents will attend the inauguration of U.S. President Elect, Donald Trump. She said that she was not surprised that the show, which has a liberal bent and often skewers political personalities, did not receive an official invite or tickets from the Trump team. Bee also revealed that the show was still figuring out how it was going to cover the inauguration as recently as one week from the event. Bee admitted that her show staff, including her, believed that Hillary Clinton would win the election and had to change multiple plans because of the surprise win of Donald Trump.



"As we were all having a gradual realization about what was happening, I thought, 'Okay, the show we thought we were going to be doing for the next four years isn't the same. It's now different. What does that mean?'" revealed Bee.
