Devon and Sarah discuss a whole bunch of bullshit about close Trump associates, how much smarter they are than our president, and elections that look good for Democrats. They award the Donald Trump Dishonor in Deep Shame to a particularly racist asshole.

They now have a Patreon if you are so inclined to help out with our operating costs. There is also the Hellbent Shop if you’d like some sweet Hellbent swag.
