October 26, 2020 11:18 PM - Season 7, Episode 27 - Subscribe

This week from the white void. Trump is beset with October Surprises (contracting COVID, news finally breaks about his tax avoidance, and we find out he had a previously-unknown bank account in China), although his supporters think Hunter Biden's laptop is a thing, entirely because Fox News keeps telling them it is. Trump gets a pass from the press on the final debate because he acted like less of a loon than usual. And Now: The Movie Taste of People On CNBC Is Exactly What You Think It Is. Main story: Immigration, specifically, how the Trump administration has been extraordinarily cruel to asylum seekers trying to enter the US. On YouTube (21m) And Now: Like We Said, The Movie Taste Of People On CNBC Is Exactly What You Think It is.

I know there is no episode this week but maybe ten to twenty minutes of Mr. Nutterbutter dancing on YouTube would be good.

There's no episode this week? The last Sunday before the election?

Life is an unjust Hell from which there is no release. Brief moments of pleasure serve only to make the suffering more piquant. Or everybody is resting up because the episode after the election is going to be very…something. Depending on what happens they are going to need clear heads for how to cope and carry on.

What I mean to ask is, where did they say there was no episode tomorrow? I don't remember them saying it at the end of the episode?

HBO Max is saying there’s a new episode tonight.
