In the fifty-third episode we explore the Appeal to the Law, starting with Trump and Giuliani claiming that paying off Stormy Daniels and colluding with Russia were both fine because there's no law against it. Then we heard Louie Gohmert using a child's excuse for disrupting a Congressional hearing.

In Mark's British Politics Corner we look at Dominic Cumming's defence for breaking the rules everyone else had to follow.

In the Fallacy in the Wild, we check out examples from Air Bud, Frasier, and Terminator 2: Judgement Day.

Jim and Mark go head to head in Fake News, the game in which Mark has to guess which of three Trump quotes Jim made up.

Then we break down the Russian bounties scandal.

And finally, we round up some of the other crazy Trump stories from the past week.
