Lightning Round: Month of June

A lot happened this past June in the headlines, so much so that you might not remember everything with how quickly news develops and takes over day to day. What were the big news stories? What did POTUS Trump do or say this time? I have all those answers for you as well as a recap right here for the first month of summer, June!

Entire Month of June

Show Talked About POTUS TRUMP: 50%

Show Talked Without Trump: 50%

  • Samantha Bee puts Ivanka Trump on blast on her TV Show "Full Frontal"
