Glenn Reacts to Louis C.K. on Trump
A new feature at The Glenn Show
We here at Team TGS have been working on ways to give you more bang for your buck, and we’ve got a new feature ready to roll out right now. Periodically, Nikita Petrov and Mark Sussman, my creative director and editor, respectively, will bring to my attention topics, news, and other content that I would not otherwise come across, and invite me to react to them. There will be a lot of experimentation. We may discuss politics one week, philosophy or science another, perhaps relationships the week after that. Knowing Nikita, I won't be surprised if we end up talking about UFOs, the simulation theory, and psychedelic research at some point in the future.
In the first installment of this series, Nikita presents a handful of clips featuring the comic Shane Gillis (who made an appearance at my first Comedy Cellar show) talking with Louis C.K. about Donald Trump. The clips are drawn from a series in which the comics discuss every US president, and Nikita selects parts of the conversation that focus on the political tensions that brought Trump to power and continue to fuel political debates in this country.
