Talking Trump (w/ David Roth)
Who is Donald Trump? The great David Roth, co-owner of Defector Media and a columnist at the _New Republic_, joins Matt and Sam to answer that harrowing question. From Trump's odd lies about his baseball talents to creepy White House Christmas decorations, this conversation was the perfect opportunity to unpack the neuroses, self-protective measures, cruelty, humor, and sheer weirdness of a terrible president on his way out of office. Also: Sam finally gets to do his Melania "impression"!
