If there is any single incident that has conclusively proved Trump’s unfitness to be president, it is his failure to provide timely aid and comfort to the millions of American citizens suffering in devastated Puerto Rico. That is the most fundamental responsibility of his office. Instead, as usual, Trump is preening and boasting rather than […]
Trying to understand why Democrat Jon Ossoff narrowly lost to Republican Karen Handel in that special election for Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District? Not quite enough black voters were motivated to turn out, according to some analysts, while others say Republicans were even more motivated by the prospect of a Democratic victory. But as Samantha […]
Following a hilarious review of the “covfefe” kerfuffle, Samantha Bee foresees a grim future where the president’s criminal defense lawyers vet all of his precious tweets, and Jared Kushner ends up in prison (prompting Ivanka to publish a memoir of her life as a single mom, cribbed from #BlackLivesMatter activists with jailed husbands).
Samantha Bee begins with Ivanka’s bizarre repetition of an invented verb — “architecting” — and charts the downward literary trajectory of the First Daughter’s new book. Given her facility with our language, it’s not surprising that Ivanka relies almost entirely on material “borrowed” from others, tarted up with lots of fancy typefaces.
When Samantha Bee threatened to stage an alternative to the White House Correspondents Dinner, who knew that she would pull off her celebration of the First Amendment with such style? At Constitutional Hall last night, the Full Frontal host put on a remarkable live show for 2500 guests — and sitting at the front table, […]
As Samantha Bee observes, Ivanka’s press clippings suggest she is lobbying her loony dad for sanity and decency. But the Full Frontal host warns liberals against fantasizing that Ivanka, nominated to the Great Feminists in Feminism Herstory Hall of Lady Fame, is their “secret progressive buddy.”
Once described by conservatives as the intellectual leader and conscience of the Republican Party, the Samantha Bee skewers Paul Ryan for his contradicting views on Trump’s policies and wonders how a “once principled social and fiscal conservative winds up in bed with a bigoted, adulterous grope machine?”
Hearing cable news anchors and even House Speaker Paul Ryan describe the travel policy’s rollout as “confusing,” Samantha Bee was not mollified. “Confusing?” she smirked.”This was the healthcare.gov of Islamophobia!” Nor was Bee thrilled to hear Trump himself claim that the ban is “working out very nicely.” And she wasn’t impressed by Kellyanne Conway’s attempt to claim that Obama had done the same thing to Iraqi refugees (a three-Pinocchio lie).
Samantha Bee offered a clinic in how to properly debunk conservative misinformation on abortion. From her deep dive investigations into long-standing myths to her monologues responding to contemporary events, Bee set the bar for news coverage of abortion issues.
At least Sam found an amusing way to use the damned emails, in a dramatic reading by Sarah Paulson that reveals how hilariously bereft of scandal they are.
“Don’t alienate the deplorables,” Bee warned, reflecting on Clinton’s very true message about “half of Trump supporters” in a campaign speech last Friday. “You can’t win a four-way-race with just ‘plorables.'”
“No… We’re going to go with the thrice-married, foul-mouthed tit judge, who likes Planned Parenthood and thinks Corinthians is a type of car upholstery.”
Samantha Bee knows more about change than most people on TV: she’s the only woman on late night TV. And last night, she broke down why protesting the Tubman twenty is such a useless waste of time.
In the wake of the South Carolina primary, two topics dominated the late night shows: Donald Trump’s steamrolling victory — and the final, definitive end of Jeb Bush.

But the bill the president proposed to raise the hourly wage to $10.10 will likely never even get a vote in the House of Representatives, despite […]
