In the historical comparison that won't die, Frank and David rant about President Trump's recent comments on Andrew Jackson and the coming of the Civil War. In unpacking Trump's comment, they also touch on Trump National Golf Course's fictive River of Blood, Apu's citizenship test, Star Wars Day, and which side Jackson would have fought on had he lived that long.
