Here’s More of Full Frontal ‘s Genius Performance Art About Trump Ruining Words

Recommended Videos

Samantha Bee’s “Fantastic Words and Where Not to Find Them” segment is one of my favorite reactions to this administration’s bastardization of language and the weird, nonsensical stream-of-consciousness that come out of their lying mouths. One part meltdown, one part experimental film, and another part performance, it perfectly captures that weird Twilight Zone feeling I now get watching the news.

It’s an absurdist look at that surreal moment when you have to pause and go, “Di-…did the most powerful man in the nation just say that? Did she just disregard the meaning of that word? Did anyone else see that?” Well, Bee’s segment assures you, no you’re not alone or hallucinating. Those things are really happening and after the exhaustion of reacting with blinding rage, upsetting lament for our country, and stress eating (oh, so much stress eating), how else can you process it but with a terrifying montage and scrapbook of the worst sound-bites punctuated with coordinated statements and laughter?

Tag yourselves. I’m “man laughing with increasing concern.”
