Samantha Bee Basically Has to Turn Her Show Into Snopes After Trump’s Lie About Voter Fraud

Samantha Bee is nowhere near done with Donald Trump. On Full Frontal last night, she took on Donald Trump’s latest tweet heard ‘round the world, which included the erroneous claim that he would have won the popular vote had millions of people not voted “illegally.” (Also, sidebar: The actual shady thing to have happened to voting in this country comes from the gutting of the Voting Rights Act.) Basically, hearsay that was once the province of the shouty corners of the internet has now gained popular appeal through Donald Trump’s Twitter handle, forcing the Republican establishment to collude with him. What’s another way to describe something as “post-truth”? Oh, right, a lie.
