'Full Frontal' Proudly Proclaims Hillary Is Back

At this point, we all know that Clinton won Monday’s debate. Well, everyone except for CBS. But you might still be wondering how much Clinton beat Trump by. I now have the answer: Clinton beat Trump so badly, Samantha Bee now feels comfortable taking very light swipes at the Democratic nominee.

Now listen, I’m not saying Full Frontal’s coverage was in any way false, but it has been openly bias. That is because good people tend to be biased against inflamed, pus-spewing hemorrhoids posing as anal warts, but there was an open bias. For a while, the changing polls, the narrowing voter gap, effing FiveThirtyEight (which is supposed to make us feel better) all started scaring the shit out of us. And during that shitless scare, Full Frontal pulled their punches against Clinton. Partly because there were significantly more important things to punch, and partly because when something terrible is about to happen to someone you stop talking shit about them.

And for at least one glorious night, Hillary seems safely out of the woods.

So revel in it. It was a phenomenal fucking show, and one so packed with different topics and take-downs I wasn’t sure which one to highlight. Most importantly, I’m not really looking forward to the next debate. Miracles apparently do happen.
