She couldn't be here Tuesday, so today, GottaLaff joins Nicole Sandler to recap the latest insanity from Trump's AmeriKKKa
Every Tuesday, Nicole Sandler and GottaLaff discuss what's in the news, often through the lens of Laffy's Twitter stream.

We begin our week at the Nicole Sandler Show on Tuesdays, so we have a lot of catching up to do with the news that broke over the weekend- most notably the death, presumably by suicide, of the most notorious criminal in US custody today.
