Samantha Bee Full Frontal Parts

Samantha Bee

Saturday Night Live had a Weekend Update sketch in the 70s called Point/Counterpoint. It starred Dan Akroyd and Jane Curtin playing pompous journalists debating the news. And it always degenerated into personal insults. Like this opening rebuttal remark by Akroyd: “Jane, you ignorant slut.”

It was almost as funny as the Claudine Longet Ski Invitational. Lorne Michaels had to apologize for that one.

Crude Crack

And so did Samantha Bee, for a crude crack she made this week about Ivanka Trump. But, like SNL, she’s still on the air. For now.

Roseanne Job Bomb

Roseanne got fired for making a racist tweet. But she didn’t just get herself fired. The intemperate tweeter may have cost hundreds of others their jobs too. She blamed Ambien.

Michael Cohen Swamp Fox

Looks like Michael Cohen could afford to pay Stormy Daniels $130,000. Though, based on past behavior, I wonder if he first tried to sell her access to the president for a future “encounter.”

Swamp Fox

According to The Hill he tried to hit up the Qatari government for a cool million in exchange for access. Also on Cohen’s client access list were Novartis and ATT.

It’s the way of the swamp. But not illegal.

Cos and Slick Willy

Bill Cosby admitted he slipped a girl a mickey and then slipped his, well, times were different then. But still.

The #MeToo movement may have locked up it’s first scraggly scalp in Cos.

For his malpractice Dr. Huxtable might spend the rest of his life in prison. And not only that, the film academy just gave him the boot.

Cos and Slick Willy

But possibly thanks to earlier feminists Slick Willy’s more lusterous silver scalp remains unruffled.

Waffle House Hero

Ok. So maybe he didn’t actually slug the guy. And a Parkland, Florida Sheriff deputy wasn’t really hiding in the parking lot. Hey, it’s a cartoon.

Waffle House Hero

But James Shaw, Jr. was a real hero when he wrestled a firearm away from a real insane shooter at a Waffle House in Nashville.
