Samantha Bee has delivered the most thorough, scorching, and funny response to Donald Trump’s lies about “illegal voters” costing him the popular vote that we’ve seen anywhere. Offering an overview of the Republican “voter fraud” myth, she includes a great 1970s clip of the late far-right guru Paul Weyrich, explaining exactly why Republicans always want fewer Americans to participate in elections. And she highlights current video of Reince Priebus, soon to be White House chief of staff, refining his capacity to lie on camera. Then the ever-charming Dick Morris demonstrates how a pro prevaricates.
Even if you’re growing accustomed to hearing stinky falsehoods presented as shiny facts, you may be amazed by the methodology used by Republican attorneys general to claim that there are millions of people trying to cast unlawful ballots. Or as Sam put it: “WHAT??!!”
