Samantha Bee received an interesting offer from Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association president Steve Loomis on Full Frontal with Samatha Bee. During her interview with the Cleveland detective, Loomis told her that, apropos of nothing, she would make a good hooker. That's right: A Cleveland cop told Samantha Bee that she would make an excellent hooker — on national television.

Loomis was speaking to Bee about the Republican National Convention currently taking place in Cleveland, telling her about the lack of resources available to the officers in the city. Loomis has voiced his concern about the safety of the convention, going so far as to request that Governor John Kasich enforce a temporary ban on open carry weapons in the city during the event. With the RNC crowds and protestors threatening to take over the city, Loomis admitted to Bee that the Cleveland police had not received enough training and/or resources to adequately keep the peace.

Moreover, he said, policemen like himself faced professional protestors who would spray them with squirt guns filled with urine or bleach. How, you ask, did Loomis know these were the preferred tactics of protestors? Well, as he told Bee, he'd been undercover at some of these groups. After Loomis' intriguing undercover reveal, Bee jokingly asked if she could go undercover with him sometime, and that's when he dropped the hooker bomb, telling her she'd make a great hooker — even though that was absolutely not what they were talking about. "Cars would be lined up around the corner," Loomis added.

Detective Loomis did not seem to register that his comments were offensive and grossly inappropriate. It's also a sadly revealing statement about how Loomis must view his female colleagues. Does Loomis think that being a hooker is the only identity women on the force can have when working undercover? Is that how he looks at women in general — as potential prostitutes? Keep in mind, this is the same Detective Loomis who called Tamir Rice "menacing" after he was shot and killed by a Cleveland police officer in 2014. Loomis also has a relationship with Fox News — in fact, as his interview with Full Frontal was airing on TBS, he was filming a separate interview for Fox News at the RNC in Cleveland with Megyn Kelly. Something tells me he thinks she'd make a good prostitute, too.
