A rapid fire roundup of the Week in Trump.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

We want to remind everyone they can join us most weeks right here at the Chase Bank Auditorium in downtown Chicago, Ill. For tickets and more information, go to webz.org, where you can find a link at our website, waitwait.npr.org. And now we are going to play a new game that we are calling...

BILL KURTIS: The Trump dump.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: So each Trump week is like a year in human time.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: And it's impossible to cover all of it, so we're going to cram as much as we can into just one minute. I'm going to read each of you, panelists, a Trump nugget from this week. And all you have to do is tell me if it's true or false. Get an answer right, get a point. Get it wrong, you're deported.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Luke, you're going to be up first. Here we go. ready?

LUKE BURBANK: Yep.

SAGAL: Luke, while signing a bill this week, Trump complained that his desk was too small.

BURBANK: True.

SAGAL: Yes.

(SOUNDBITE OF BELL)

SAGAL: Amy, right after saying, quote, "we don't make mistakes," Trump called a man named Chuck Ken.

AMY DICKINSON: True.

SAGAL: Yes.

(SOUNDBITE OF BELL)

SAGAL: Greg, the president sent his lawyers to shut down a teenager's website featuring Trump getting punched by kittens.

GREG PROOPS: Nyet (ph).

SAGAL: No that's, actually true.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Luke, Sean Spicer gave an entire White House...

BURBANK: True.

(LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: No, actually, Luke, Sean Spicer gave an entire White House press briefing with some food on his tie.

BURBANK: I'm going to go with true.

SAGAL: No, it was false. He had food in his teeth. Amy...

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: ...This year the Turkish Chocolate Festival will feature a bust of the president sculpted from icing.

DICKINSON: True.

SAGAL: Yes.

(SOUNDBITE OF BELL)

SAGAL: Greg, evidence surfaced proving Donald Trump has a crippling fear of roller coasters.

PROOPS: Fake question.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: Well, it's actually false. It's a fear, it seems...

(SOUNDBITE OF BELL)

SAGAL: ...Of drink coasters.

DICKINSON: No.

SAGAL: He pushes them away. Amy, to monitor Trump's travel, Democrats introduce the Making Access Records Available to Lead American Government Openness Act, which spells out MAR-A-LAGO Act.

DICKINSON: True.

SAGAL: Yes.

(SOUNDBITE OF BELL)

SAGAL: Greg, somebody snapped a photo of Trump playing golf last weekend even though the White House said he was working.

PROOPS: True.

SAGAL: No, it's false. The picture is of Trump at a golf course watching golf on TV.

(LAUGHTER)

SAGAL: All right. We're all done. We feel cleansed, right? It's all out.

DICKINSON: Wow.

BURBANK: That's it. Very cathartic.

(LAUGHTER, SOUNDBITE OF THE BUDOS BAND'S "TRAIL OF TEARS")

SAGAL: Coming up, our panelists did not get the memo. It's a clueless Bluff The Listener Game. Call 1-888-WAITWAIT to play. We'll be back in a minute with more of WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME from NPR.
