Dan Savage, Eli Sanders, and Rich Smith talk about the bombshell New York Times story that proves Donald Trump lied about being a self-made billionaire. (Spoiler: Trump's daddy gave him a whole lot more cash than Trump has ever acknowledged.) Will this shredding of a core Trump myth change anything at all?

Then, Katie Herzog talks about the case of Jack Smith IV, the “woke” journalist who was fired from Mic amid allegations of sexual misconduct. Was this the right response to these particular allegations?

Finally, Rich and Eli talk with Dan about the new movie on Russian election interference Dan made them watch: Active Measures. It’s impressive. It’s also a lot.

Plus, as always, the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.
