Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Samantha Bee’s monologues are too restless to focus on one topic alone. This week, the comedienne begins with a funny riff on the “Q-Anon” devotees at a Trump rally who can’t tell a meaningless random-words generator when they see one, and wraps up with a shot across the bow at sleazy CBS executive Les Moonves.

But sandwiched in-between is Bee’s best gunning-down of a gun zealot to date. Taking on creepy Cody Wilson, a printable-weapon salesman who thinks the debate about homemade mass murder machines is “over,” the Full Frontal host unleashes a character assassination so deadly that you’d think it came from a Xerox.

Of course, it’s not really fair, since Wilson is fighting Bee with only one hand. What’s his other hand doing? Hint: it’s not tied behind his back.

See Sam smack a wanker.

"The money guarantees Democrats nothing heading into November 2020," Schneider, Arkin and Mutnick explain. "But with President Donald Trump's poll numbers sagging and more GOP-held Senate races looking competitive, the intensity of Democrats' online fundraising is close to erasing the financial advantage incumbent senators usually enjoy. That's making it harder to bend their campaigns away from the national trend lines — and helping Democrats' odds of flipping the Senate."
