“Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” takes on LePage, “the beta version of Trump”

“Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” the TBS show hosted by former “The Daily Show” correspondent Bee, took on a person we here in Maine are exceptionally familiar with: one Gov. Paul R. LePage. While most of us have heard the rants, gaffes and off the cuff remarks LePage has peppered the airwaves with over the past six years, there might be a few people out there that haven’t — so Bee takes on all the hits, from D-Money to Ziki flies to socialist you-know-whats. She levels plenty of withering criticism of Maine as a state, too, or as she calls it, “The unheated crawl space between Quebec and New Hampshire where America hides its heroin.” Take a look for yourself!
