Samantha Bee isn’t buying the “Golden Showers” allegations.

The “Full Frontal” host returned to TBS on Wednesday night and immediately tackled the unsubstantiated claims in a dossier alleging that Russia has “compromising personal and financial information” on President-elect Donald Trump.

“Hallelujah! It’s comedy Christmas!” said Bee. She then noted that the reports were “ludicrous” and probably “bullshit,” but the very thought that they might be “plausible” was a “terrifying statement of what our nation has come to.”

“The only verifiable thing about this report is how much joy it gave me,” Bee said. “We’re supposed to believe Trump is paying people who do work for him?”

Bee later took aim at Trump’s conduct during his press conference on Wednesday, in which he refused to take CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s question and called the network “fake news.”

“While it’s fun to watch a livid Orange Julius explain that he can’t be into water sports because he’s a germaphobe, we may have witnessed what the history books will call the end of America’s tradition of a free press,” Bee said.
