Samantha Bee Puts Both Conventions (And The Election) In Perspective

It's qualified HIllary, or the guy "holding Putin's sweaty sack."

As always, Samantha Bee's take on the conventions was a serious one, served with a side of snarky humor.

After pointing out that Hillary had "athletes, preachers, the working poor, the self-made billionaire, Republicans, and oh, just for good measure, half the fcking Pentagon standing on the stage saying 'Vote For Hillary if you want to LIVE!'," Bee pointed out that it takes that much firepower for a woman who isn't the best campaigner on the planet to square up next to Cheeto Jesus.

"That is how good you have to be if you're a woman running for President," Bee said. "And she still might the least qualified candidate ever to lurch into the public spotlight and sh*t on Gold Star Moms while cradling Putin's sweaty sack."

No one can say it like Bee can, amirite? Watch and laugh.
