Young people need to be ferreted out and challenged on their idealism whenever possible.

Even in today’s heavily polarised atmosphere, one thing everyone can agree on is that young people are terrible. Misinformed, poorly dressed. “A burden on the state,” as they say.

Not the kid on this week’s Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, though. He’s an absolute prince.

Gabe Fleisher is a 15-year-old aspiring journalist who puts out a popular political newsletter, prizing objectivity and integrity above all else. In an interview with Full Frontal correspondent Ashley Nicole Black, he refuses to take his interviewer’s subjectivity bait – even when it comes to how beautiful she is.

Also in this episode, Samantha Bee takes aim at Donald Trump (the Suddenly Susan guest star who became the most powerful man in the world a little while ago) for ignoring the developing humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico and waging a culture war against kneeling professional athletes instead.
