I got a flood of email this week asking me to bring in the fuckface himself, Donald Trump. It was a long-time coming, but the point his relatively innocuous candidacy becomes dangerous is when he foments racial unrest and Islamophobia, which he did this week by suggesting Muslims should carry ID cards and be registered in a national database. Awesome.
Also, my Penn & Teller: Bullshit episode finally came out, and I received a response from Penn Jillette himself. Here’s the video (link to his response in the sources below):

Here’s the news report about how more Mexicans are leaving America than coming for the first time in 40 years (full article below):
Here’s one of the clips of Donald Trump wanting to raise taxes on the rich:
As for the Muslim database, Donald Trump has since backed away from the comment, in a move that may win the gold medal in the Non-Committal Olympics:
The fact that he has yet to thoroughly and denounce the idea of such a database is telling. And here’s that David Letterman clip where Trump A) doesn’t know where his clothes are made and B) gets busted on outsourcing jobs & manufacturing:
Letterman suggested shutting down the factory in China and opening one up in New York, and Trump said, “I’m for it!”
And here’s another clip of him from 1999 proposing the biggest tax-hike ever. Video won’t embed correctly, linked below.
