CLARIFICATION (September 11, 2020, at 2:14 p.m. EDT): In criticizing The Rebel’s Keean Bexte in this episode, Jesse said that on “the rare occasion where he actually gets to ask a question, it’s never actually a question.” This was an overstatement, as Keean Bexte has indeed asked actual questions.

Jesse’s subsequent comments in the segment were not in reference to Keean Bexte.
