Samantha Bee takes a look at the current state of Trump's White House transition.

At one point she observes that he's "taking a dump in the Potomac." She does, however, give President Obama props for loving his country enough to keep the transition of power peaceful.

And as she notes, all the norms we are so used to having in place are shattered. Gone. You may want to make a list of the ones you liked best, so maybe we can restore them if he doesn't destroy the country, and possibly the world, in the next four years.

Yeah, I know. It doesn't sound very funny. But somehow Bee makes it funny in spite of things, and that is a very, very good thing.

Can you help us out?
