Samantha Bee’s response to the latest installment in the Hillary Clinton email ‘scandal’ is as on point as always. Sam brought Sarah Paulson on to recite Hillary’s most scandalous emails, and well, they’re not very shocking at all. So what did Hillary really write in her correspondence? WATCH!
Samantha Bee, 47, addressed Hillary Clinton‘s most recent leaked emails on the Nov. 7 episode of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. She summed it up beautifully: “Thanks to WikiLeaks, we discovered the real Hillary: a somewhat tech-adverse workaholic who wants people to have medicine.” Sam then brought out Full Frontal‘s “best new intern”, Sarah Paulson, to read some of the emails. WATCH above!
Sarah wore a “nasty women” shirt, smart black blazer and glasses as she somberly read the emails, which included Hillary asking Huma Abedin, “You up?” and seeking help with her iPad and other devices. “Here’s my question: on this new [Black]berry, can I get smiley faces?” Sarah read. Another email said, “Can you give me times for TV shows: Parks and Recreation and The Good Wife?” Well, Hillary’s got great taste in television!
The best, though, might be this one: “Gefilte fish: where are we on this?” Ooh, so scandalous.
Before proving that Hillary’s emails are essentially harmless, Sam rolled a clip of CNN explaining that while the FBI is backing down, “the cloud of suspicion…is still there”. Sam’s response? “You created the cloud! Don’t let one off in our nation’s elevator and stand there saying, ‘Who did that? Was it Hillary?’” Exactly.
Full Frontal with Samantha Bee will air a post-election special on Nov. 9 at 10:30 pm EST on TBS — don’t miss it!
