Samantha Bee Breaks Down the Democratic Debate, Offers a Helpful Feminist Pro-Tip

The democratic presidential debate on Sunday night in Flint, Michigan happened against the backdrop of the city’s ongoing water crisis. And on Monday night, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee was ready to recap Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders’ latest go-around—a temporary The Walking Dead replacement that she dubbed The Standing, Barely Alive.

Bee wasted no time dissecting the crucial moments: from Hillary’s cough that, on closer inspection, may just have been a way to call Bernie a “socialist” under her breath, to Bernie’s amazing ability to tie any issue back to Wall Street, no matter how attenuated the link. But the biggest head-scratcher came when Bernie headed off Hillary’s interruptions by pointing his finger and saying, “You’ll have your turn.” Bee aptly noted the poor choice of words: “After twenty-five years, ‘Wait—you’ll have your turn’ is Hillary’s trigger.”
