"Full Frontal" host Samantha Bee returned last night to discuss the phenomenon wherein "presidential elections are like children -- they're all the most important" according to the candidates running in them.

"The most important election of your lifetime wasn't 2008. It was two whole years later, and you didn't vote in it, and you got your ass kicked," Bee explained, referring to the 2010 midterm election that saw an unprecedentedly high conservative (and low youth, minority) voter turnout.

"2010 swept 87 Republican freshmen into the Capitol, including a host of ill-qualified and temperamentally unfit newbies," Bee continued. Among these newbies' accomplishments:

"They shut down the government, they somehow turned 60 failed attempts at taking away people's health insurance into a badge of honor, and refused to vote on immigration reform, leaving Americans so frustrated, they're willing to vote for the first two-bit wall salesman who says he'll stop Mexicans from raping their jobs."

Regarding Trump, Bee added, "If you didn't vote in 2010, you built that."
