Oh no. Trump is outside Maureen's house. Well, he's too close at least. He's at the U.N., and that is not good. It is really not good. Luckily, Hayes Brown from Buzzfeed comes by to process the news so you don't have to! We talk about world affairs, the importance of the free press in modern society, and the X-Men.

Also, Trump's lawyers are dumb. Why are they so dumb? And Trump called the leader of North Korea Rocket Man. Why is everything so dumb? Is it dumb on purpose? Is it to make US feel dumb? We talk about what this uncertainty does to our minds and our attention spans.

Oh, and we talk about how Elton John is awesome. Get on our rocket, Sayswhovians. We're going to the moon.
