In the one hundred and sixteenth episode we explore the Broken Clock Fallacy, starting with Trump claiming he was right about everything, then exposing his reasoning for appointing Jerome Powell as Fed Chair, and finally claiming he knew all along that the candidate he endorsed for Alabama Senate couldn't win.
In Mark's British Politics Corner we look at Rishi Sunak promising to reduce inflation over an unspecified timeframe, and Boris taking credit for the vaccine rollout.
In the Fallacy in the Wild section, we check out examples from The Traitors, The Mentalist and National Treasure: Book of Secrets.
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 the Biden documents and why they're not quite the same as the Trump documents.
And finally, we round up some of the other crazy Trump stories from the past week.
