On the most recent Full Frontal, host Samantha Bee lambasted the Senate for refusing to move forward on president Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland.

Bee looked at the arguments coming from the Republican senators and dismissed each one, finally asking frustratedly, “Why are you c*ckblocking this gentle law Hobbit?”

Bee also gave a warning to senate Republicans, urging them to accept Obama’s nominee or else face a Clinton nominee, a “transgender Black Panther abortion doctor,” or Trump’s “Pile of Maxim magazines.”
