So what is the timeline of this segment? Was this during the obama terms
7 January 2019 | by colcompSee all my reviews

I watched this episode with a skeptical eye as the recent episodes of this series seem to be more and more politically motivated rather than the work of writers with an imagination that wanted to "entertain" their audience. No matter how you look at it, they FAILED all around. We see a female Secretary of State visiting the border where it appears that everyone living down there is some kind of a backwoods clown who's gotten too much sun. Great job writers, you nailed it - seriously, you couldn't be further from the truth but hey don't let FACTS get in your way. Kind of like this "Family Separation" at the border was done under the previous administration, ya know POTUS44 as well as more recently. It just wasn't played up in the media because that just wouldn't be right for Hollywoodland to tell the REAL TRUTH especially when a liberal is in the White House. I'm hoping we get to see the Secretary of State get Locked up in the episode tonight as that would be quite fitting and most justified in real life, you know when HRC was the Secretary of State. This will be the LAST episode I will be watching as I prefer to watch entertainment on TV unless it's a News or Factual show, nonsense like this episode fits neither.
