Chad and Amanda talk about televangelists Pat Robertson and Joel Osteen and how they are all about the money. We also touch on Joel Osteen's church and Hurricane Harvey and a prank call to Osteen's church's prayer line. We wrap it up with the “Nashville Statement” Christian Manifesto.

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.

Chad and Amanda Get back together after a couple of weeks away to discuss the many sides of the tragedy in Charlottesville, VA.

I'm not including any links on this one. Everyone has surely seen just about everything dealing with this story at this point.

In a you pick one I pick one scenario, Chad talks about his pretend arch nemesis, Ken Ham and his sinking Ark Encounter. Amanda speaks about a Baby from the UK named Charlie Gard. Chad is a little loopy in this one as he has just given blood for the first time and hasn't fully recuperated yet at the time of recording.
