Full Frontal with Samantha Bee debuted last week with a solid opening, which included a megamix of Bernie Sanders flagging down a waitress and a Werner Herzog inspired short documentary about the decline of Jeb Bush’s campaign.
Bee is back this week with some archaic revelations regarding the process for appointing a new Supreme Court Justice, dug up from the DM manual of the United States known as “The Constitution.” Apparently Obama’s character sheet totally gives him the ability to roll up a new judge, and the Senate’s attempt to stop him is nothing more than an attempt to adhere to a completely unofficial house rule.
Bee also manages to get through the whole segment without completely throwing recently deceased justice Antonin Scalia under the bus, even going so far as to mention a few rulings that young liberals might actually agree with. But wait, this is still a comedy show, right? Yes, don’t worry, the segment ends with a montage of the chaotic dark which was last Saturday’s Republican debate, and a frankly unexpected face turn from Donald Trump that has all of us scratching our heads.
