Hosted by Negin Farsad, Fake the Nation is all the comedy about politics without any of the politics about politics. Every week Negin and a cast of her funniest, smartest and most politically astute friends (John Fugelsang, Lizz Winstead, Dean Obeidallah and others) gather 'round the political roundtable to break down the news, make you laugh, think, and deliver a gut punch to the American political system.
Rhea Butcher (Take My Wife) and Robin Thede (The Nightly Show) join Negin in LA to discuss the chaos sewn by the travel ban, our fraying foreign relations, and some mental health survival strategies. Plus, Trump's primetime SCOTUS nominee rollout. But first: Beyoncé is pregnant and Robin is thrilled.This episode is brought to you by the DecodeDC podcast, Shari’s Berries (www.berries.com code: FAKETHENATION), and Hello Fresh (www.hellofresh.com code: FAKE35).
