On this week’s Any Given Wednesday, Bill Simmons brought in radio personality Charlamagne Tha God to talk about winners and losers of the past week. They discussed Monday’s presidential debate and offered some advice on how Donald Trump can use airport design as an issue to broaden his campaign’s appeal.
