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 Bee explains on Full Frontal, there were also just enough Georgians in the Atlanta suburbs stupid enough to believe that the moderate Ossoff represents the “unhinged left” — you know, those thousands of bloodthirsty wackos who were “cheering on” the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) on the baseball diamond last week. You say they don’t exist? Sean Hannity says they do! And so does “Principled PAC,” which aired an anti-Ossoff ad warning about those mad, murderous liberals.

Nothing is more unhinged than the right-wing propaganda pumped into American homes, reliably proving that there is nothing a rube won’t believe. The stupid, it still burns, hotter than ever.

During this time, your doctor will review medications with you, provide vaccinations, and manage any diseases you may have.
