Samantha Bee: Gov. LePage should serve as a warning to America

Maine Governor Paul LePage was featured heavily on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee last night, as Bee used clips of some of the governor’s most racist, xenophobic and violent statements to warn against the election of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

“Like Trump, the governor and his core supporters see his unfiltered mouth-garbage as a feature, not a bug,” said Bee. “Let Maine be a warning to the rest of us, because, as they say, those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it or, more likely in this case, are just plain doomed.”
