Amanda and Chad quickly discuss the incoming Tropical Storm before moving on to catching up on some updates to stories from the past and a couple of new stories. Plus a couple of quick movie reviews from each host finishes out this episode.

*** The title is more of a jab at the president more than anything else. We really do hope that this episode finds everyone in Texas safe and sound.
