Red Herring - FT#33

- Fallacious Trump, 08/09/2019 -
In the thirty-third episode we explore the Red Herring Fallacy, starting with examples from Trump claiming he'll knock the hell out of Isis to distract from the pussy grabbing tape and then insulting a Gold Star family.

In Mark's British Politics Corner we look at Boris Johnson using an actual smoked herring as a red herring, and then not answering a question in creative ways.

In the Fallacy in the Wild, we check out examples from Family Guy and The Simpsons.
Jim and Mark go head to head in a game of Fake News, the game where Mark has to guess which of three Trump quotes Jim made up.

Then we discuss some of the ways Trump is breaking the law about foreign and domestic emoluments.

And finally, we round up some of the other crazy Trump stories from the past week.
