    I do always wonder every time I hear a new broken thing our country has done: when does it fucking stop.
    Seriously guys, when does it fucking stop. Cause I know it’s not me, and probably not you.
    But when does it stop.

    Colson Whitehead is an amazing author and come on now Trevor, you and your writers couldn’t come up with better questions? Bruh your show has lost it’s bite, I understand it’s a comedy show but so is John Oliver’s and honestly so is Jim Jefferies and they both are funny while pulling no punches, just an opinion

    Yes, “people,” that is the word. I can’t wait to read it, I do not want to read about the magical puppy who I’m sure is very cute and magical. 😊
