Samantha Bee Tackles the Trump Golden Showers Story, and It Is Glorious

“Hallelujah! It’s comedy Christmas!”

When we’re hit with unsubstantiated reports that the incoming President-Elect hired sex workers to perform anti-Obama hotel room golden shower shows, you know what that means: “Hallelujah! It’s comedy Christmas!” So proclaimed Samantha Bee on 2017’s first episode of Full Frontal – which was presumably scrapped entirely and rewritten from scratch Wednesday, following CNN’s report and Buzzfeed’s publication of the Trump/Russia dossier Tuesday night.

“The only verifiable thing about this report is how much joy it gave me,” Bee admitted, and her entire #GoldenShowers segment, while (unsurprisingly) uproariously funny, also got to the heart of the whole sordid business: that it’s wildly fanciful and wholly unsubstantiated and probably bullshit, but “the fact that it’s plausible bullshit is a terrifying statement about what our nation has come to.”
