Oliver Willis: If Trump Loses, the GOP will pretend they never heard of him

Liz Preza and Joshua Holland kick off this week's show by recoiling in horror at the thought of sexy-time with Rudy Giuliani -- and by wondering if Borat will end up saving the republic.

Then we're joined by Oliver Willis, a senior writer at The American Independent, for a wide-ranging discussion of what a post-Trump GOP might look like, and what Democrats should and definitely not learn from Trump if they manage to regain power in January. (And Joshua continues his tireless campaign lobbying Oliver to get another dog.)
