VIDEO: Clips from Last Night's Episode of
TBS' Full Frontal with Samantha Bee
On this week’s episode of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, Sam profiles the guy gunning to play Gossip Girl in the upcoming reboot, Lev Parnas, makes the case for paid family leave, and offers a brief explainer about the current situation with Iran that is (spoiler alert) still happening!

The Impeachment Trial: Show Us Parnas’ Receipts
Donald Trump’s impeachment trial has begun, and as expected, Republicans continue their attempts to hide evidence and undermine witnesses, including Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas, a man with as many receipts as a grandma on Christmas morning.

Paid Parental Leave Is Good For Business
Guess which country is the only industrialized nation without paid parental leave? Did you guess America? Great job! Despite overwhelming evidence that it’s actually GOOD for overall company morale and the economy, America refuses to institute any type of paid leave for new parents and instead leaves it up to corporations to figure out what’s best (read: cheapest) for their employees. What could possibly go wrong?
** This week, Samantha Bee unveils Full Frontal’s new parental leave policy and it’s the best one in late-night! 20 weeks full pay for moms, 4 weeks full pay for spouses/partners, health insurance and job protection for up to a year if they want to take more time off.

Iran Explainer with Gissou Nia & Michael Bennet
The situation in Iran is not as straightforward as Republicans in Congress would like you to think it is. Unsurprisingly, killing a state official without consulting Congress might not be the best move! Samantha meets with human rights lawyer Gissou Nia to learn more about the situation in Iran & also with Senator Michael Bennet, a man still running for president, to learn more about how he would have handled this.
This piece was produced by Razan Ghalayini with Grace Leeson, edited by Andrew Mendelson, and graphics by Ed Mundy.

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee airs Wednesdays at 10:30/9:30C on TBS
