40. Syria, the Tax Day March and Sleep (w/ Dean Obeidallah, Michael Caruso, Gianna Palmer, Nora Ritchie)
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.
Dean Obeidallah (SiriusXM) and Smithsonian Magazine editor Michael Caruso join Negin to discuss Trump’s strategy in Syria, Sean Spicer’s ill-advised Holocaust remarks, and the FBI’s secret court order to monitor Carter Page, a former Trump adviser. They also ace a quiz about the Kentucky Coal Museum. Plus, Nora Ritchie and Gianna Palmer from the Fake the Nation production team jump behind the mic to discuss the Tax Day March and sleep as a status symbol, respectively.
