In the fifty-seventh episode Jim and special guest host Chris (Mark's away this week) explore the Politician's Fallacy, starting with Trump explaining his motivations for the China tariffs and the Muslim ban.

In Chris' British Politics Corner we look at Brexit.

In the Fallacy in the Wild, we check out examples from Yes Minister and the world of British professional football.

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

Then Jim talks to Dr. Norma Mendoza-Denton, one of the authors of the new book Language in the Trump Era: Scandals and Emergencies

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