With reckless Islamophobia fueling politics and Twitter on both sides of the Atlantic, Muslim communities are facing a lot of scrutiny just for being Muslim. Whenever there is a mass shooting in the United States that had a Muslim perpetrator, racists call upon the entire Muslim community to defend themselves against being guilty by association. The same is not expected of all white people when there's a white shooter, which is the case 61% of the time.

Full Frontal also took on the not-so-brexy Brexit, offering a sliver of hope that the triumph of xenophobia in the UK might not lead to the same in the US election.

And for more jolly good fun, Bee recruited David Tennant for a hilarious segment, Scotsman Reads Trump Insults.
