In the one hundred and ninth episode we explore the Reductio ad Hitlerum, starting with a tweet from Trump about living in Nazi Germany and several examples of Marjorie Taylor Greene comparing random things to Hitler, Nazis, brown shirts, and the Holocaust.
In Mark's British Politics Corner we look at similar behavior by Helen Morgan MP, and the Daily Mail inadvisedly weighing in, followed by comedian Tristan Ross invoking Hitler as a comparison to Keir Starmer.
In the Fallacy in the Wild section, we check out examples from Community, Office Space, Fawlty Towers and a YouTube song called 'Everyone I Don't Like is Literally Hitler'.
Jim and Mark go head to head in Fake News, the game in which Mark has to guess which one of three Trump quotes Jim made up
Then we talk about Ron DeSantis's reprehensible publicity stunt sending migrants to Martha's Vineyard under false pretences.
And finally, we round up some of the other crazy Trump stories from the past week.
