Samantha Bee, Sarah Paulson explain what we really learned from all Hillary's emails

After "an edifying weeklong orgy of media speculation" about Hillary Clinton's emails, FBI Director James Comey said there was nothing relevant in the newly discovered trove, Samantha Bee sighed on Monday's Full Frontal. The pundits declared that Clinton still has a "cloud of suspicion" over her head, and Bee was not amused, saying in the clip's one NSFW moment: "Oh for f—'s sake, you created the cloud! Don't let one off in our nation's elevator and say, 'Who did that? Was it Hillary?'"

"You want to talk about emails instead of policy? Fine, let's do it," Bee said. "Thanks to a heroic transparency fetishist who refuses to tell Swedish authorities whether or not he raped someone, we already know what Hillary's staff used email for," she said, and thanks to WikiLeaks and also FOIA requests, we've also seen Hillary's. What's in them? "We looked," Bee said. "About a million of them are just Hillary and Huma emailing 'U up?' to each other — they clearly don't know what that means, which makes me doubt Huma ever opened up her husband's laptop. We were a little scandalized to learn that Hillary can't use a printer," she added.
