WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME is a production of NPR and WBEZ Chicago, in association with Urgent Haircut Productions. Doug Berman is our benevolent overlord. Philipp Goedicke writes our limericks. Our house manager is Don Hall, assistant house manager is Tyler Greene. Our web guru is Beth Novey. And this week, we are going to say goodbye, sadly, to our beloved intern, Alex Wallachy.

Alex, we hope your time here was worth more than the couple of calls from your grandmother concerned about your well-being. That's true. Grandma, she did a great job and we hardly hurt her. Thank you, Alex. BJ Leiderman composed our theme. Our program is produced by Robin Linn and Miles Doornbos with, this week, Candace Mittel. Technical direction is from Lorna White. Our CFO is Ann Nguyen. And the executive produce of WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME is Mr. Michael Danforth.

Now, panel, how will the CIA get back at Donald Trump? Adam Burke.

ADAM BURKE: They're going to rescind their offer to allow him to personally waterboard suspects.

SAGAL: Oh. Roxanne Roberts.

ROXANNE ROBERTS: They'll start sabotaging the letter T on his building signs so all the lights read rump.

(APPLAUSE)

SAGAL: And Tom Bodett.

TOM BODETT: Every night, for his first hundred days in office, they'll send in elite black ops teams to put an obscene Elf on a Shelf somewhere in the White House.

BILL KURTIS: Well, if any of that happens, we're going to ask you about it right here on WAIT WAIT... DON'T TELL ME.

SAGAL: Thank you, Bill Kurtis. Thanks also to Adam Burke, Roxanne Roberts and Tom Bodett. Thanks to all of you for listening. I am Peter Sagal. We'll see you next week. Don't give up on us yet.
