Because appointment television is rapidly dying – and being equally as ruined by spoilers on social media (you people are animals) – there’s a good chance you missed Samantha Bee’s brutal “Not The White House Correspondent’s Dinner” special on Saturday night by either living your life or binge-watching The Americans.
Does it preach to the choir? Absolutely. Does that make it any less hilarious? Hell no. And as much as I get Bill Maher’s point from Friday night’s Real Time that sharing things like Samantha Bee on Facebook will never win over Trump voters – and to be clear, they won’t – he’s missing the key benefit of those interactions: Keeping the left motivated.
And God knows we need it.
