Frank Fontana: Hey, I've been in scary situations before. Remember Libya?
Murphy Brown: Yeah, you were roughed up pretty well there too.
Frank Fontana: But I filed that away under "bad stuff that can only happen in another country." But I'm home, Murph. This is America and - I don't feel safe here any more.

Sometimes funny, but...
6 December 2018 | by javajan-58456See all my reviews

Normally there are humorous elements to this series. But not this episode. It was little more than pandering to the left (and Trump haters, or course, of which there are many). Yet, they did a good job of covering up Candace's weight problem. The series does take a point of view, and that must be respected. However, there will never be the series opposite. Hollywood is incapable of producing a series (or even an episode) that has a conservative point of view.
