Can Donald Trump Even Read? 'Full Frontal' Is Just Asking

Full Frontal has done a lot of amazing things in its first season, but they’re apparently not ready to rest on their laurels. That’s why they decided to pack four shows’ worth of material into one episode. Seriously.

In this episode alone, Bee takes on the Alt-Right, flies to Russia to interview career trolls, and interviews some dude named Barack Obama. And just for funsies threw a disturbingly possible Trump theory up on her YouTube channel that won’t help anyone’s election anxiety. There’s simply too much material, and not enough time. Quick! To the First Impression-ator.

(The Alt-Right, Parts I and II are both amazing, but, since you’re reading this on the internet, I’m guessing nothing new. Watch at your infuriated leisure.)

Samantha Bee, I love you. I love you so much. But please, in the name of all sweet merciful crap, don’t do this again:

Obama: I’m dressed up as what happens when young people vote.

Bee: (mocks Millennials for 30 full seconds.)

I hate young people as much as anyone (and old people and middle-aged people), but when you want something from someone (and we really, really do) try not to generally insult and alienate them.

On the one hand, I know I should be concerned and alarmed at Russia’s direct, state-run interference into our elections and their attempts to influence our opinions. On the other hand, I can’t stop thinking about the dude’s comment that he’s “shaking things up.” I know that they are dangerous, but I also feel like I’ll forever imagine Russian trolls as that one guy at a barbecue who does too much blow and goes skinny dipping alone because this “party was getting lame.” No one wants you to do that, sir, and everyone thinks you’re a jackass.

Everything about this video is gospel.

And tune in next week when Sam helps pilot the first manned spaceship to Mars, interviews the late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, and takes a closer look at Eric Trump’s almost-certain alien ancestry. I’m guessing. I’m pretty sure she can do anything at this point.
