Which Republicans are most directly tied to white-supremacist fascism in 2018? Of course, many Democrats would go right to Donald J. Trump. But whatever your opinion of Trump on race and civil rights, he would likely be in the Reform Party or another fringe organization were it not for his devious strategy of taking over the GOP. In a weird way, Trump is the truest RINO of them all.

What about further down the ticket? Full Frontal host Samantha Bee has spent a week trying to rustle-up some GOP fascists to expose, and she’s got a nice big scalp in VA Republican Senate nominee Corey Stewart.

Bee shows the audience that not only does Stewart pal around with actual Nazis, his “land of Jefferson” campaign routine is total baloney, owing to a nasty little secret! The comic’s reveal at 2:30 is a classic.

(Editor’s Note: A National Memo email erroneously timed the reveal at 2:50, but it actually comes a little sooner. Best to watch the entire clip for maximum Bee time.)

Shut up, Stewart. Heh heh. Heh.
