Not many people know this, but you are only legally allowed to play a Wild Draw Four if you do not have any cards in your hand that match the colour of the card on top of the discard pile.
If you have reason to suspect that the player before you played a Wild Draw Four illegally, you may challenge the play and that player must privately show you their hand. If you are correct in that they played the card illegally they must draw the four cards instead. But if you are incorrect you draw the four cards plus two penalty cards for a total of six.
**Without this becoming a right-wing conservative cesspool of judgement and prejudice, please.
