We'll take a look at Trump's ability to rook gullible Republican donors.
Meanwhile, the media has been having a debate about Trump's voter base. On one side you have people who believe it's entirely driven by racial resentment. On the other, you have those who insist it's all rooted in economic anxiety. But what if the real problem is that we've all just taken sides in a dumb debate? Joining us to travel to a middle ground is University of Connecticut history professor James Kwak.

Joining us to talk about how fact-checking is still losing the battle of confirmation bias is New York Times columnist Emma Roller.

On this week's show, we talk to the Sweet Meteor, live from deep space, about its bold plan to annihilate the planet and extinguish all life on Earth.
