Professional Russian trolls sit down with comedian Samantha Bee on "Full Frontal" to discuss their work as pro-Trump commenters.

Pro-Trump trolls are a phenomenon affecting websites across the spectrum of the Internet (HNHH included), often skewing and souring the political conversation.Although we won't argue for the perfection of any candidate (or their voter base), we will admit that Trumpers (AKA Trumpets) pose a distinctive and unique problem to the online conversation and election at large. It's been alleged that the Russian government finances a sizable portion of pro-Trump trolling online. This is hypothetically committed in an effort to sway the American electorate.
