Feelin' pregnant? Monday's Full Frontal with Samantha Bee broadcast a report on "crisis pregnancy centers"—antiabortion clinics that often masquerade as abortion clinics and legitimate pregnancy centers.
“A crisis pregnancy center is a fake abortion clinic,” Vicki Saporta of the National Abortion Federation says in the segment. “They want women to believe there are long-term negative consequences, like they won't be able to have children, like they will suffer from 'post abortion stress syndrome,' or that they would have an increased risk of breast cancer.”
Saporta says there are about twice as many of these "fake clinics" in the U.S. than there are actual abortion clinics.
If you've been paying attention to democratic primary results, you may have heard someone say Hillary Clinton's 220 delegate lead on Bernie Sanders is actually bigger than it looks because of superdelegates.
Samantha Bee used last night's episode of Full Frontal to explain the existence of superdelegates, and question the idea they ensure Clinton's nomination. Or, as she put it, "If Bernie gets more votes than Hillary, her superdelegates will drop her faster than she drops her fake southern accent the second she leaves South Carolina."
Jessica Williams, national treasure and feminist superhero, had a segment on Wednesday's Daily Show highlighting the struggles trans people face on a daily basis.
In the segment, Williams interviews trans woman Meagan Taylor, who was once reported to the police for being "a bit unusual," and a panel of other trans people about the bigotry they experience on a daily basis.
Williams also talks to Colorado chaplain and lawmaker Gordon Klingenschmitt, who decided to let this combination of words come out of his mouth while on camera:
“They [the transgender community] not only want to be confused with their own identity, they want the rest of us to be confused with them. Now they want the government to join them in that pretense. They’re making us into liars.”
"Donald Trump is America's back mole—it may have seemed harmless a year ago, but now that it has gotten frighteningly bigger, it is no longer wise to ignore it."
It's Super Tuesday, and as John Oliver points out at the beginning of the video below, that's a big deal—In every election since 1998, the candidate who has won the most states on Super Tuesday has gone on to be picked as their party's nominee.
In a segment from Sunday's show, Oliver takes a look at four things Trump supporters name as his assets: he tells it like it is, he's funding his own campaign and is not beholden to anyone, he's tough and he's successful.
Super Tuesday may be a big indicator in the upcoming election, but Arizona voters still have some waiting to do—Our primary takes place on March 22, three weeks from today.
