In the eighty-first episode we explore the Appeal to Common Folk, starting with Trump claiming he's a blue collar worker, and then claiming he and his followers are actually super elites. Then Don Jr talks about how much he loves trucks, guns and meat.

In Mark's British Politics Corner we look at Nigel Farage, who embodies this fallacy.

In the Fallacy in the Wild section, we check out examples from SNL, Scrubs, and the Barbie version of the Prince and the Pauper.

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Then we talk about the unbelievably flawed Ivermectin study which has now been withdrawn.

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