Samantha Bee Puts "Creation" of Trump Squarely on. . .Democrats?

Nobody seems willing to build up third or fifth national parties in the off-years. The only ones chugging away in those years, running the long game? Republicans. And as feckless and gormless as they can be, they're really good at the long game.
