Samantha Bee Sends Out 'Full Frontal' Emmy Screeners as Fake Russian Tapes
Samantha Bee is even using her Emmy mailers to poke fun at President Donald Trump.
The host of TBS' Full Frontal sent out screeners to voting members of the Television Academy in the form of a fake Russian tape. Of course, the gag alludes to the tapes that are rumored to exist that prove Trump's alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
The case the screener comes in includes a made-up confidential intelligence report titled "Republican Candidate Donald Trump's Activities in Russia and Compromising Relationship with the Kremlin." Over the document is text from Bee that reads, "The only veritable thing about this report is how much joy it gave me."
Check out the Emmy screeners below.
