Samantha Bee Tears Into GOP's ‘Shrill' Impeachment Defense
Samantha Bee got chills when she heard House Democrats finally announce articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump this week. "And not like the bad chills when I saw Taylor Swift's creepy smooth cat body," she explained. "The good chills like when I see Idris Elba's creepy smooth cat body."
