Watch Full Frontal Prove False Right-Wingers' Choice Between Helping Refugees And Helping Veterans

Definitely watch this and not the Glenn Beck interview, anyway.

Before last night's episode of Full Frontal, TBS was promoting one segment in particular: a sitdown between host Samantha Bee and right-wing agitator-turned-supposed-apostate Glenn Beck. The notion behind their summit was that the imminent presidency of Donald Trump is a horror that should unite people at opposite ends of the political spectrum on the grounds of common decency. But to me, this is just more of the false equivalency of the Rally To Restore Sanity And/Or Fear that Bee's old boss organized. Personally, I feel that any revolution in which Glenn Beck has a comfortable seat is a revolution that's not going to get very much done. If you MUST watch that segment, you can. But I feel your time would be better served by Allana Harkin's report on the choice right-wing media keep offering between helping Syrian refugees and serving the needs of U.S. military veterans, efficiently proving how false it is BY TALKING TO BOTH REFUGEES AND VETERANS.

And while we're on the subject of Syrian refugees: if all your holiday shopping is done and you still have a few dollars left, consider giving some to the White Helmets, who are on the ground trying to deal with this ongoing humanitarian horror. You can even donate in the name of a veteran you love.
