Determined to see if there was more to Trump supporters than meets the eye, Bee had a conversation with some of his fervent followers, promising them a party after the interview ended.

The group included people of different ethnicities, political beliefs, and levels of formal education.

Then she challenged the interviewees on Trump's comments on social issues, specifically his statements on Muslims in America.

The room erupted with Trump's followers insistently saying that he's for "temporarily" banning Muslims.

Next, Bee, asked about Trump's association with white supremacists...

But Bee fired back with a response that, unsurprisingly, didn't get a lot of love.
