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.
