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.
Stephanie Butnick (Unorthodox) and Azhar Usman (Ultra American) join Negin to discuss the collapse of the latest G.O.P health care bill, the upcoming tax reform battle, and how the right spins the Trump-Russia scandal. Plus, America’s infrastructure is in a state of crisis. How did we get in this mess and what can we do about it? The panel weighs the pros and cons of private financing for public works.
