Samantha Bee says she's pretty sure Donald Trump can't read

Samantha Bee hasn’t been shy about who she’s rooting for this election. And it’s not Donald Trump.

The latest example is a segment called “People Are Saying…” that showed up on the “Full Frontal” Facebook page Monday, in which Bee makes the case for why Trump cannot read.

Bee says in the segment that it first dawned on her while watching a deposition Trump gave in June that was released for public viewing in September. 

In one part Trump refused to read from a legal document, first because he said he didn’t bring his glasses, and then his lawyer stepped in and said Trump didn’t have to read it because he’s not a lawyer.

“At first, I thought Trump was lying, but then it hit me,” Bee said. “You heard it here first: People are saying Donald Trump can’t read.”

The segment continues with numerous examples of Trump’s disinterest in reading, including his saying that he doesn’t actually write his tweets, instead telling things to his staff to tweet; accusations by those who have dealt with him in the past that he hasn’t read a book in 20 years; and “Saturday Night Live” cast member Pete Davidson revealing on the “Opie Radio” XM station that Trump refused to read the scripts given to him when he was a guest host.

Bee points out what she’s doing here is showing “how easy and fun it is to take random scraps of evidence and spin them into ridiculous conspiracy theories.” It’s a¬†practice that has become widespread this election season.
