39. Russia Isn’t Going Away (w/ Christian Finnegan, Benari Poulten)
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.
Christian Finnegan (Black and White) and Benari Poulten (Garbage Time With Katie Nolan) join Negin to talk about the latest Bill O’Reilly sexual harassment scandal, the Senate showdown over Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, and the gender pay gap. Plus, they take another look at Trump’s Russian entanglements, including Erik Prince’s apparent effort to set up back-channel communications between Russia and Trump.
