Who's Bill This Time?, Bluff the Listener about a head of state upsetting their people with erratic behavior, Not My Job about footwear, The Trump Dump, Listener Limerick Challenge, Panelist Predictions: what will Bill O'Reilly do next?

The listener contestant for the Who's Bill This Time? segment is a Latin adjunct instructor and was asked to say "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!" in Latin and did so.

When Faith Salie read the quotes that she used in her Bluff the Listener story, she attempted a New Zealand accent that was closer to how Dick Van Dyke sounded in Mary Poppins. When revealing the correct answer, the New Zealander speaking in the recording had a very mild accent and that shocked Faith.

The answer to one of Faith's Lightning Fill-in-the-Blank questions was the Teresa May, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Mo Rocca's Bluff story was about... Teresa May, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
