Samantha Bee travels to Jordan to speak to Syrian refugees and the State Department about the kind of vetting that refugees have to go through to enter the United States.
Two episodes in, and Full Frontal With Samantha Bee is already establishing itself as a daring, innovative addition to the late-night slate. Bee is following in her mentor Jon Stewart’s footsteps by combining withering put-downs of dumb politicians with some actual on-the-ground reportage. Monday night’s episode, for example, featured video of Bee visiting a Syrian refugee camp in order to meet “the people we’re incoherently yelling about.”More from Uproxx.
Bee’s interviews with Syrian refugees in a camp in Jordan is interspersed with cable news footage of Republican presidential candidates like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz yelling about the refugees’ supposed threat. To dispel the myth that refugees might be ISIS fighters in disguise, Bee interviewed Kate Dorsh, a representative for the organization in charge of resettling refugees.
