Given Donald Trump's recent call for a "complete shutdown" on Muslims entering the U.S., wouldn't it be shocking if the presidential hopeful had a Muslim daughter?

A new mockumentary, The Muslim Trump Documentary, imagines what might happen if that were true. The film follows a character named Ayesha Ali Trump as she embarks on a mission to confront her estranged father.

Fawzia Mirza, the Canadian actress who plays Ayesha, joins Shad to discuss the elaborate ruse, how real Trump supporters reacted to her claims, and why the filmmakers chose to challenge the mogul-turned-politician through humour.
