In recent weeks, Full Frontal host Samantha Bee has used her show as a platform to advocate for progressive policy positions, from student loan forgiveness to gun control. This week, Bee had a new target in her crosshairs: the Electoral College. Bee began her rant against the Electoral College by declaring that “Trump’s so-called election is just one of the many reasons the Electoral College sucks and should be abolished.”
Once again, Full Frontal host Samantha Bee has apparently decided that her true passion is for left-wing politics, not comedy. On the most recent edition of the show, Bee complained about the “terrible, restrictive abortion laws...being passed across the south” and “the shitty men who pass these laws despite not knowing where a vagina is.” Bee actually traveled to the south to talk to “the women who are doing so much to fight back” against the abortion laws, whom she portrayed as crusaders for “reproductive justice.”
Samantha Bee used to be a comedian, back when she was yukking it up as one of Jon Stewart's sidekicks on The Daily Show. That seems like ancient history now. These days, Bee has become a full-bore polemicist given to vein-bulging screeds fobbed off as comedy.
Just a week after giving a lecture on the importance of student loan forgiveness, supposed comedian Samantha Bee devoted her opening monologue to giving a lecture on gun control during Wednesday’s edition of Full Frontal. Bee expressed her desire to “get rid of the guns” before dismissing the idea that mental illness was a contributing factor in the El Paso mass shooting: “being a racist monster isn’t a mental illness...in fact, you can be one and be a very stable genius.” Bee was obviously implying that President Trump, who once referred to himself as a “stable genius,” was also a “racist monster.”
The past couple of weeks have brought the latest example of liberal news outfits like CNN and MSNBC suddenly taking notice of a recurring problem in immigration enforcement under President Donald Trump's administration which also happened during past administrations, including that of Barack Obama. A number of shows pounced on the story of natural-born American citizen, Francisco Galicia, who was detained by CBP and handed over to ICE in a process that took over three weeks because of suspicions that he was an illegal immigrant, in spite of him having his birth certificate on him, as a number of news reports suggested that his detention was racially motivated, with much of the coverage omitting aspects of the story which help explain why the detention happened in the first place.
While Full Frontal host Samantha Bee briefly weighed in on the Democratic presidential debates, she devoted most of her opening monologue Wednesday night to promoting student loan forgiveness. After highlighting some of the candidates’ proposals for dealing with the student debt crisis, Bee declared that “we need student loan forgiveness now.”
As NewsBusters has previously reported, CNN admitted that Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not provide any new ammunition for Democrats' efforts to impeach President Trump during his appearances before the House Judiciary Committee and the House Intelligence Committee Wednesday but that did not stop some on the network from continuing to call for his impeachment anyway. Like her counterparts on cable news, Samantha Bee also called for impeachment in spite of Mueller’s lackluster appearance on Capitol Hill.
If you thought TBS’s strange comedy The Detour couldn’t possibly top their disturbing sexualization of a young girl last season, you might be unpleasantly surprised to find out they came pretty close in Tuesday’s episode, “The Game Show.” This time, the scene involves a teen boy simulating masturbation of an adult man dressed in a cow costume while also begging his mother to roll over 12 supine men and their penises. I know, I know. I did warn you that this comedy is strange.
We’re 5 episodes into TBS’s comedy The Detour, and still, nothing much has changed. The show is still relying on typical anti-Christian storylines, caricatures and stereotypes as fodder for its plotlines, and when it does branch out into something more unusual, it’s disgusting, incestuous stories that would make most pedophiles smile. Given that Samantha Bee is the creator, this comes as no surprise. The show proved a while ago that they’re not talented enough to come up with new material instead of constantly relying on cliché attacks on Christianity.
Planned Parenthood handed out their annual Media Excellence Awards last week. They used to be called "Maggie Awards," after their founder Margaret Sanger. They proclaimed "We are so thankful for their fearless and honest reporting about what is at risk when people are denied one of their most fundamental human rights — their access to health care." But some of these don't award "excellence" -- they award fake news in defense of Planned Parenthood.
During Wednesday’s Full Frontal, host Samantha Bee accused NBC’s Chuck Todd of “dropping the ball” by letting President Trump “off with softball questions about where he’s going to build his library without once mentioning his many accusers” during his sit-down with President Trump, which aired on Meet the Press Sunday. Bee had harsh words for Todd and others in the media, whom she slammed for getting “tired of talking about how the President did sexual assault a bunch.”
It turns out even the Democrats running against President Donald Trump aren’t radical enough for the Hollywood activists. During the first round of the Democratic Presidential Debate on the night of June 26, actors, comedians, and singers listened eagerly to the words of the candidates. With the exception of Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), the candidates were all dismissed by the wealthy elite on the West Coast.
