In the seventy-ninth episode we explore the Appeal to Accomplishment, starting with Trump talking about how successful his imaginary friend is, and suggesting non-successful people shouldn't be able to criticize people like him.

In Mark's British Politics Corner we look at Boris Johnson touting the success of the very unsuccessful Track and Trace system.

In the Fallacy in the Wild section, we check out examples from a Beauty and the Beast, The Bourne Legacy, and Smallville.

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 talk about the sanctions hearing against the Kraken lawyers, which was amazing!

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