Samantha Bee starts ‘Full Frontal’ book club to read Ivanka Trump’s new book


To celebrate the recent release of Ivanka Trump’s Women Who Work, Samantha Bee and the Full Frontal team started a book club (“Ladies Who Book”) as part of the show’s ongoing sardonic series “The Great Feminists in Feminism Herstory Hall of Lady Fame.”

The book is “a strawberry milkshake of inspirational quotes” a semi-plagiarized amalgam with some 208 sources (The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is quoted 30 times) and not without problematic reminders of Ivanka’s privilege.

Bee isn’t the first late-night host to zero in on Ivanka, who was the subject of a lengthy Last Week Tonight segment in which John Oliver dissected how progressive she and Jared Kushner really are (they’re not). Bee even includes a clip from The View in which Whoopi Goldberg describes a “particularly regrettable passage” where Ivanka uses a Toni Morrison quote and asks if her reader is a “slave to time.”

Wednesday’s Full Frontal also addressed the American Health Care Act and the firing of James Comey, in which Jeffrey Toobin repeatedly reminds cable news reporters: “This is not normal.”
