Can comedy take down the orange menace, before he nukes the planet? We talk to two comedians who are taking on Trump with satire. Maysoon Zayid is Trump's worst nightmare: she's a smart, funny, Muslim-American disabled woman comic from New Jersey. Then, Greg Proops is the smartest man in the world, and you should be reading his book and listening to his podcast. Laugh, and resist!
