In the sixty-third episode we explore the Ad Hoc Fallacy, starting with Trump making shit up about why he lost the election (and also pretending he didn't lose the election).

In Mark's British Politics Corner we look at Piers Morgan interviewing Matt Hancock and Nigel Farage.

In the Fallacy in the Wild, we check out examples from 12 Angry Men, The Simpsons Movie, and Uri Geller's appearance on The Tonight Show.

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

Then we break down Trump's post election lawsuits, of which Trump has currently won 2 and lost 34.

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