44. Comey Gets Canned (w/ Benari Poulten, Kaitlin Fontana)
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.
Negin phones in from a gig in Salt Lake City, Utah to chat with Benari Poulten (Garbage Time with Katie Nolan) and Kaitlin Fontana (The Box) about the biggest news of the week: Trump firing FBI Director James Comey. They discuss the Comey fallout and ponder the all-dude Senate working group that’s rewriting the latest G.O.P. health care bill. Plus, Negin drops knowledge on the (unsurprisingly) huge chasm between our social media selves and our IRL selves.
