Bryan Curtis and David Shoemaker discuss the new book by Mary Trump, niece of Donald Trump, in which she writes about how her family “created the most dangerous man” (2:05). They then touch on the letter in Harper’s that was signed by everyone from J.K. Rowling to Matthew Yglesias and discuss what brought these people together and what the point was (20:35). Then, they respond to some listener mail and address the urgent question, “Did The New York Times reuse the heavy-weight champion of celebrity-profile headlines?” (34:15) Plus: the Overworked Twitter Joke of the Week and David Guesses the Strained-Pun Headline.
