this is one of those segments that just scream 'give sam bee an hour' – it'd be great if there was time to go into more depth!

Sorry, but Christine sounds like an apologist for Kim Jong Un. She compares N Korea to America. Well, at 1:50 I might add that N Korea does not allow its people to travel, that N Korea does not allow citizens access to news or the internet outside their country, does not allow free speech that is critical of the government, does not allow free elections, or privately run media companies, does not allow those who feel oppressed to protest or organize in any way and they make demonstrations of loyalty to "Dead Leader" mandatory, especially in schools. There is no… Read more »

wait, wait, the USA does not systematically discriminate one group of people –that's North Korea, the USA systematically discriminates many groups of people.

I love you, Sam, but your wrong. Sanctions are the smallest actions we can take, and they still aren't enough. North Korea becomes more aggressive by the day, and our highest voice at the moment is a feather haired orange assclown. I'm not talking about the casual deaths of likely million's of people lightly, but at this point, our options are small and growing smaller by the day.

2 million people. Sheesh.

Wait, how does lead help people live?
Seafood – sure, coal – if that's the level their heating is on – yes, iron? The cynic in me says they'll use if for tanks, but there might be some left for construction, but lead? What is it useful for beyond bullets given it's toxicity?

It wouldn't be 25 million Americans who die in that hypothetical war. The bulk of that would be Koreans on both sides of the DMZ. The loss of American lives would be a non-issue relative to the massive humanitarian crisis that would occur on the Korean peninsula.

2:00 What group is being systematically oppressed by the government?

Hadrian Augustus
Guest

Of course it's targeting innocent poor people. That's the point. It kills off potential enemies and gives them to reason to rise against the government.

Pulling a train on a meatball grinder is the epitome of diplomacy!

Of course Trump wants more war. He has to keep feeding the paranoia and bigotry that are the staple of the GOP these days. Else their national convention would consist primarily of tumbleweeds rolling across the stage.

I don't think Twitter erase our account after our death. It would be bad for business.

Real question. Why didn't the jewish folks settle in Europe where the came from?

Such BS. Yes, the US has problems, but if I wanted to leave it, they would not shoot me for doing so. (looks for my mic to drop)

Drop the mics, cast the shade, that was brilliant!

Also the second interview was fascinating!

The narration at 1:32 might lead some to think that US bombing of North Korea led to Kim il-Sung taking power. But the Korean War was started by Kim, already in charge in the North, backed by Stalin, invading the South.

Of course USA all bad and North Korea all good. So Samantha of to North Korea or back to Canada. Tired of your Hillary shrill down here in the US.

Tbh Trump should be put to capital punishment for everything he has done.
Think about it…
What good has he done for every civilian in the country? Nothing, nothing at all, quite frankly he made Americans situation worse, made young children’s future uncertain, and brought down the economy lower then ever. Don’t be surprised if Korea takes over.

Lisa Dixon

Oh. My. God. Thank you. Thank you for covering Korea. It’s a declared war that isn’t even officially over. Just a cease fire. Thank you APUSH. People forget the Korean War.

6:17 that rising intonation indicating a question 🙁

The thing I love about Samantha Bee is that she shows how you no longer have to be a skilled prevaricator like Walter Duranty or George Bernard Shaw to whitewash a totalitarian hellscape. Any nattering blockhead can do it. What progress!

Stout Shako

I'm not against peace talks, but just saying it's worked in the past doesn't convince me. With my limited knowledge of North Korea, all past attempts at peacefully talking to them or making agreements has gone south because they didn't uphold their end of the bargain and continued testing missiles and pursuing nuclear warheads. If someone could offer me a few cases where that wasn't the case, I'd appreciate it.

I love this show, but this segment misses the mark in a big way.

Thank you for not being like Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, and Trevor Noah. I watch their videos and sometimes it's like watching the same story three times with repetitive jokes. Your content is so refreshing and different. Keep it up!

Samantha Bee and her fans seem to be really ignorant of history. How could anyone like this video?

The US has an Inventory about 6,800 nuclear warheads. If it would lose them all it would show its real psycho face. Therefore even the country that the US calls the most extreme is easy care. The US is the most problematic country on earth: mainly because the centrists and the left in the US are way too soft towards the right/confederates/white supremacists/Nazis/banks/insurancers/corporations/rich people.

300,000 in the first few days?

That's got to be low-ball. I'd expect it to be 10 times that.

Seoul is 10+ million people 200 miles from North Korea.

And the population of NK+SK is about 75-80 milion people. How could a war impact just 1/3 of the people instead of, you know, EVERYONE?

These things aren't related, the Kims aren't suddenly innocent of crimes because other world leaders are also guilty and the fact that the famine's been over for a long time and North Korean social media exists doesn't relate to the problems caused by the Kims' policies. The fact that people in the US know nothing about foreign countries in often extreme ways doesn't mean North Korea is awesome. It's not two-dimensionally evil devoid of all nuance, just like literally everything else that actually exists.

I've been a devout Samantha Bee fan for years, but this segment was utterly vile, a rendering of a standard North Korean propaganda line and a slander on the million or so Koreans, Americans, and United Nations who fought in that long ago war. For those not up on the real world history of the conflict: Korea had been occupied by Japan for forty years when it was liberated by the Japanese surrender to United Nations forces in August of 1945. The United States had very few people who knew anything about Korea. Because Josef Stalin had invaded Manchuria in… Read more »

I realized it's comedy but they just did the birth of north Korea without mentioning Japanese fascism, WWII, Communism, Mao, Stalin…

Okay, first off I get that the point of the segment is to help us understand the plight of North Korean citizens and America’s role in creating the environment they now live in. That is legit, and thank you for bringing that to light. That said, the shift from “why is Kim Jong Un such a s***head” to “why is the US such a s***head” strikes me as a pretty big whataboutism. All of the criticisms of the US are valid, but let’s not forget that Esther Lee (forgive me if I misspelled her name) is a North Korean defector.… Read more »

Sam, why blame those ppoor microphones? All they can do is repeat what you tell them, so it's neither fake nor news.

At least you did it from a seated position, for Shure, for Shure…
