Fans Can Make Their Picks in the "Bracket of Bullshit" at ThirdMonthMania.com
NEW YORK, March 13, 2018 - On last night's episode, Trevor Noah announced "bullshit" as the topic for the third annual Third Month Mania. The show has chosen 64 moments of pure bullshit from the last year and has broken it up into two conferences: The Trump Conference versus The Everything Else Conference. Will the Fyre Festival or the Chris Christie Beach Closure win from the Everything Else conference? Or will the Trump Conference prevail with a bullshit moment like President Trump saying he "doesn't watch much television, primarily because of documents"? Voting is now open at ThirdMonthMania.com.
Last year, over six million votes were cast by fans during Third Month Mania. The show culled through 35,000 tweets and selected 64 of Trump's top Twitter moments. The all-time greatest tweet by the President as selected by the viewers was "Are you allowed to impeach a president for gross incompetence?" (6/4/14).
