‘Full Frontal’: Samantha Bee and Glenn Beck Make Nice, Wear Ugly Christmas Sweaters
2016 truly has been a like one long Kafkaesque fever dream, and we’ll be damned if it doesn’t get weirder. Samantha Bee closed out the year that just won’t stop with a very special holiday guest on this week’s Full Frontal.
Those of you who have been paying attention this election season probably know conservative talk show host Glenn Beck has been on some kind of apology tour this year, speaking out against Donald Trump and taking responsibility for the unhinged rhetoric and conspiracy mongering he used to traffic in at Fox News, which he now believes paved the way for a candidate like Trump.
And that’s what brought him to Full Frontal, where he and Sam Bee put on ugly Christmas sweaters and tried to one-up each other with examples of just how much their respective audiences hate the other.
Like Beck himself, you’re probably wondering why a self-described “ultra liberal harpy” like Bee would want to sit down with someone like him. “I think our future is going to require a broad coalition of nonpartisan decency,” Bee explains.
