Samantha Bee Explains How News Reporters Can’t Keep Up with Trump’s Lies

After a long hiatus, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee returned to TBS last night, and when it comes to the election, Samantha Bee had a ton of news to catch up on. In the above segment, Bee looks back on Matt Lauer’s widely panned Commander-in-Chief Forum with Trump and Clinton last week and how Lauer didn’t hold Trump accountable for all the lies he told during the interview.
