As every presidential candidate announces in strong, stentorian tones that this election is the “most important election” ever, ever, ever – Samantha Bee points to the rather snooze-worthy 2010 mid-term elections.
“The year was 2010. Kesha’s brave cry for help was at the top of dance charts. The man-made disaster spewing toxic foulness wasn’t Donald Trump, but Deepwater Horizon. And, oh yeah, there was an election. Just one of those boring midterm ones that will.i.am. does not make videos about. And just like with our college midterms, most of America thought it was fine to sleep through this one.”
