This episode made more questions than it did answers. On what visas did the Chinese investors get into USA? How come the Tibetan wasn’t deported after his jail sentence? Who funded the Farmers Market and the 41 story building after it all went bust?

These people shouldn't be idolized or memorialized in film. He hurt so many people. White collar crime should be taken more seriously.

Is she honestly going to keep saying "private parts" on a professional news show made for adults and while discussing a topic such as sexual health which is aimed at adults? It sounds ridiculous. You'd think she was talking to 5 year olds or something. Just use proper terms! I love that he chimes in at one point after she says "private parts" agsin and says "an erect penis." She gets all flustered 😂
