Sarah Paulson gave a dramatic reading of Hillary Clinton‘s “controversial” emails on Full Frontal With Samantha Bee Monday. Bee introduced the actress as “Full Frontal‘s best new intern” performing her new one-woman show, ‘Hillary’s Emails: Yes I Am Up.’
Over a dark piano melody, Paulson recited scandalizing lines like: “One issue we must address Tuesday night, the future of women in the Islamic world”; “Can you give me times for two TV shows? Parks and Recreation and The Good Wife”; and “Gefilte fish – where are we on this?” Following further requests for help with her iPad and ways to expedite donations to victims of famine in Somalia, Paulson closed with a stunning repeated recitation of “please print.”
Bee previously broke down the non-scandal that’s been hanging over Clinton throughout the campaign and how when it resurfaced last week, the FBI concluding for a second time that there was no need to press criminal charges. Despite the Trump campaign’s insistence that Clinton’s emails contained nefarious plots, Bee noted they’re rather filled with requests like those to help doctors in Haiti or a 10-year-old Yemeni girl, as well as notes asking her staff to print out articles and countless correspondence with top aid Huma Abedin asking, “Are you up?”
“They clearly don’t know what that means, which makes me doubt Huma ever opened her husband’s laptop,” Bee cracked.
