- [Narrator] Gadoosh.
- Hey, did you listen to new Pod Saves America?
- Oh no, I forgot my iPhone when I went in
to go buy nut milk.
- Hey, folks.
- Hi, doctor.
- How 'bout it?
- Just thought we'd take a few moments
and chat about your little bean (laughs).
So, the baby is weighing in at 6.8 ounces.
Which is very normal for this stage.
- We have a healthy heartbeat.
- You probably should be feeling
some little baby kicks by now.
- I am.
Yeah, the other night.
- Just (drum beat noises).
The myelin is starting to form around the nerves
and the fetal measurements indicate that your baby
is a Republican.
The genitals are in place.
And the sensory development.
- I'm sorry.
Pregnancy brain (laughs).
I thought I heard you say Republican.
I could have sworn I heard you say Republican, too.
- Yes, it's 'cause I did.
Your baby is going to be
a future member of the GOP (laughs lightly).
But what we really needed to discuss is the kidneys.
Now I don't mean to be an alarmist,
but we found a spot.
- I'm sorry.
What are you talking about Republican?
- Yeah, it's a fetus.
How could you even begin to tell?
- Folks, you wanna let me finish about the kidneys part?
Since that's the most pressing issue.
We're recommending that you get an amniocenteses.
- I'm sorry I have to go back to what you said before.
Because I don't really understand how this could happen,
because we live in New York City.
I mean, I'm Jewish.
- We're an interracial couple.
- Yeah, we see a lot of theater.
- We watch Rachel Maddow
and listen to NPR.
- Yeah and we went to the Women's March,
the one in D.C.
I mean, we got a hotel room and everything.
- Her poster was amazing.
- Are you two hearing me correctly?
We could have problems
with your child's organs.
- When you say Republican,
you mean fiscal, right?
It's a fiscal Republican.
- Yeah babe, like a Mitt Romney.
Not a Mitch McConnell.
- For the love of God.
Gang, this could be a life or death situation here.
We're talking fluid retention, seizures.
I mean, what's wrong with you?
All you care about is whether it's a Republican.
- Do not say that word.
- Okay, alright.
You know what, that's it.
Listen this is obviously taking precedence
over baby's health and well being.
So I'm just going to leave you both
to a little private time.
Oh, I almost forgot.
Here's a photo of your baby's sonogram.
- No, my God!
- Don't look. Don't look.
It's so bad.
