Trump's guilty of a cover-up far more blatant than those lion pubic hairs stapled to the top of his skull. Comics Andy Kindler and Bruce Smirnoff along with National Security Reporter for The Intercept Mattathias Schwartz, Constitutional Law Professor Corey Brettschneider and Movie Critic Michael Snyder. Plus From The Vault: Robert Smigel is Donald Trump.

Andy Kindler regularly voices the character of Mort, a mortician and the Belchers' neighbor, on Bob's Burgers. He also stars on IFC's Maron. His State of The Industry addresses make history at Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival and are now available for download on iTunes. Kindler is considered one of the funniest comic minds and the most daring, unafraid to attack comics, producers, agents and everybody else who can further his career. He is one of Alex Brizel's all time favorite comics which makes David jealous.

Mattathias Schwartz is a national security reporter for The Intercept. He has served as a contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine, a staff writer at The New Yorker, and is currently a term member at the Council on Foreign Relations. In the past, he has contributed to the print editions of the Wall Street JournalWiredBloomberg BusinessWeekMIT Technology ReviewHarper’s, and the London Review of Books, among other publications. He founded and funded the Philadelphia Independent, a broadsheet newspaper, and served as editor and publisher for its 21-issue run. “A Massacre in Jamaica,” Schwartz’s investigation into the extradition of Christopher “Dudus” Coke, for The New Yorker, won the Livingston Award for International Reporting. “A Mission Gone Wrong,” an investigation of the killing of four Honduran civilians during a DEA-led drug interdiction, was later nominated for the same award. Schwartz also wrote “The Whole Haystack,” which examines the government’s collection of domestic phone metadata under the controversial Section 215 program.

Bruce Smirnoff's show business career began at the age of 13, when he tried to attempt an acrobatic stunt he witnessed on the Ed Sullivan Show. The next day, from his hospital room in ICU, Bruce chose the guitar as his next foray into the performance world, convinced this would net him the attention from the females he so desired at school! Armed with no real ability, a low IQ, and no interest, whatsoever, from females, Bruce soon found something he was good at, STAND-UP COMEDY.

At Boston University in the late 70's, Bruce became famous ushering in the tremendous comedy boom that swept Boston, which included people like homegrown Jay Leno. Bruce wound up in L.A. in '78, where he spent the next twenty-two years, leading to dozens and dozens of national TV appearances and his 1998 critically acclaimed, award winning One-Man Show, "Other Than My Health, I Have Nothing.And Today, I Don't Feel So Good!" The show ran two years in L.A., then made stops in Toronto, New York, Cleveland and Kansas City.

Currently residing in Florida, Bruce headlines in top comedy clubs and gated communities throughout the United States, Canada, and Australia, where his topical humor and quick wit have won audiences everywhere. He has opened for stars like Julio Iglesias, the Righteous Brothers, Gregory Hines, and Andrew Dice Clay.

Corey Brettschneider, Professor of Political Science at Brown University, teaches courses in political theory and public law. He is also Professor, by courtesy, of Philosophy. He holds a Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University and a J.D. from Stanford Law School.

Professor Brettschneider works at the intersection of constitutional law and democratic theory. He also has been a visiting professor at law schools, including The University of Chicago, Fordham and Harvard.
