In this week's Full Frontal, Samantha Bee explores the captivating prose of Ivanka Trump's Women Who Work, an "initiative celebrating women who work at all aspects of their lives." Cool.

And in keeping with the misogynistic spirit of the Trump administration, Ivanka's self-help book aims to inspire women not through personal testimony, nor cited studies, nor original advice from Ivanka herself.
