I was incredibly impressed by the commentary Samantha Bee did last night on her TBS show about the carnage in Orlando — particularly her scathing remarks about politicians whose only solution is to pray.
I’m not surprised by how Bee handled it, because she has shown over the last few months of “Full Frontal” how intelligent, funny, and pointed she can be when attacking a subject. She and John Oliver have taken their “Daily Show” training to even greater heights on their respective new shows, sadly leaving former colleagues Trevor Noah and Stephen Colbert well behind in the social commentary arena. She also out-did all the other late night boys on this subject by not holding back her anger, while they spewed empty platitudes like “love wins in the end.”
As Bee points out, love is nothing without action.
