Samantha Bee lambastes the treasure trove of damning text messages handed over to the House Select Committee by former Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, which included more than 2,319 exchanges with various Trump sycophants and Republican lawmakers.

“Some of the most damning texts came on Election Day, like when Fox News host Sean Hannity promised Meadows he would push his listeners to get Trump elected,” she continues. When Meadows pressed Hannity to “stress every vote matters”, the host replied: “Yes sir. On it.”

The ad also attempted to present Arizona Senate Republican nominee Blake Masters as only wanting a reasonable "compromise," despite his long history of backing total abortion bans.

Fox News star Tucker Carlson eulogized Ralph “Sonny” Barger over the weekend, effusively praising the founder of the vigilante biker gang Hells Angels just one month after telling Republicans to run on crime policies. Barger spent around 13 years in prison following convictions for assault with a deadly weapon and kidnapping, among other charges.
