It’s a crowded field of Democratic party presidential contenders at the moment. With 24 candidates already on board and several rumored to be waiting in the wings for a possible entry later, it’s inevitable that some will have to toss in the towel at some point and concede that the top of the mountain is a lot farther than they thought.
So it is that Full Frontal host Samantha Bee made the following offer: although none of the contenders made their intentions to run known on her show, she would instead provide them the chance to drop out with dignity on her program. She’ll even provide a list of reasons, including “spending more time with my family,” and a selection of balloons.
See the offer above, which may soon become the offer they can’t refuse. Not to mention, she’s threatened to crush Stephen Colbert’s glasses if they choose him instead of her.
