the sound on this episode is terrible! one minute the level is fine, then it drops so much you have to turn the volume up, then go deaf when the volume goes back to "normal" level. So frustrating!

She's so misinformed about politics, especially about Trump. The wall is intended to prevent ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS from entering the US not Mexicans. One of the many examples.
