If you've been following the news at all this past week, you've probably noticed things are taking a turn for the worst for the Republican Party. In fact, it's almost as if we are back in the Nixon era, because everyone is talking about various incriminating tapes—whether they're between Comey and Trump or House Majority Leader Paul Ryan and fellow conservatives.

During Thursday night's Desus & Mero, the two hosts discussed the June 2016 tapes the Washington Post uncovered, where Ryan and a few of his colleagues laugh and joke about the idea of Putin paying Trump. A spokesperson for Ryan brushed the recording off as merely "an attempt at humor," which is plausible, according to the VICELAND hosts, because most of the Republicans are terrible comedians. Just take a look at Mike Huckabee's Twitter feed.
