Samantha Bee on the SOTU, Russia Investigation, and Devin Nunes Memo: “It’s Like a Turducken of Treason”

Here’s a clip from last night’s Full Frontal, where Samantha Bee recaps Donald Trump’s State of the Union address: “Rumor had it this would be an optimistic, glasses-half-full type speech. And it was — assuming that glass is half full of cyanide and I get to drink it.” Bee also recaps the Devin Nunes memo about to be released by the White House and how even the public demand to release it using the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag was pushed in part by Russian bots. “You remember Devin Nunes as the guy who already had to recuse himself from this very investigation for lying to protect the White House, so we should definitely trust him! And Nunes hasn’t even seen all the intelligence he based the memo on, so this so-called ‘memo’ of Nunes’s is more like a fun little fan fiction he wrote in his spare time,” Bee says. “The Russian interference investigation has itself been interfered by Russians. It’s like a turducken of treason. Tastes bitter, like the ashes of our democracy.”
