This week on a bicoastal BTL, a sinkhole opened up right next to Mar-A-Lago RIGHT BEFORE WE STARTED RECORDING THIS PODCAST. That's real life.
This week on BTL, Brent is back! We dive into the week in Nixonian shenanigans starting with Yates ending with the Comey firing and circling back to why on earth Trump is mentioning "tapes" and other RED FLAGS on Twitter. Plus we've got the latest on the many many (many) celebrities who now, thanks to Trump, think the presidency is within reach. All this and much more! Stay tuned and welcome back Brent!
Dmitry Zotman sits in for Brent as we discuss the AHCA (aka Achoo) passage in the house, the RELIEF of a boring moderate winning the French presidential elections (how far we've fallen), the chaos in Venezuela, Trump’s Monday press storm, and more! And a speedy recovery to Brent, whose trip to Mexico left him with a terrible death-illness that Donald Trump's continued existence is NOT helping go away.
This week on BTL, we do a deep dive into the French presidential elections because they're somehow even more entertaining than our own. Then we review Trump's first 100 days; he doesn't have much to show for it, and let's hope this week doesn't change that. Plus, there's Georgia's 6th, Chaffez's last, and the Tom Perez/Bernie Sanders sideshow that perfectly sums up why "unity" is eluding the Dems. All that, plus an in-depth analysis of Bill O'Reilly's hopefully not-prophetic work of fiction in which an angry, disgraced newsman who's out of a job murders all of his enemies. Eek! Watch out, women everywhere.
This week on BTL, our days may be numbered thanks to tensions with North Korea, but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate the arrival of a brand new giraffe into the world! Plus we've got more on the White House's chaotic behind-closed-door know-nothingness and an update on the week in Trumpian Holocaust denial. Then, it's a look at the local races shaping the Dem message for 2018 (or so we hope) and a reminder that being paid to protest is a career we'd definitely take up if only anybody on earth was offering.
This week on BTL, we get philosophical. Democracy as we knew it never really existed, wars rationale is in the eye of the beholder, and Michele Bachmann knows it all (according to her God). Plus, the Trump royal dramas begin (this is going to make a great TV show later), the House Intelligence Committee basically ends, and Alabama sends their sitting Governor, the "luv guv," to jail. Come for the news, stay for the sandal!
This week on BTL, the hilarious comedian/actor/fellow Bernie-phile Helen Hong joins us in the studio to talk Bernie, Hillary, Nunes (w/ new pronunciation!), treason, Trump, HB2 and so much more! Plus our heads simply cannot grasp the greatness that is Maxine Waters in a fight, the silliness that is Sean Spicer in a tan, and the awesomeness that is Justin Trudeau's history with Matthew Perry (pt 2!).
This week on BTL, we clicked our heels and the wicked AHCA is gone! The wicked AHCA is gone! What an adventure of a week, what a ride. What began with strong arm tactics on Monday devolved into bizarre pleas by Thursday and outright failure by Friday and we take you through the whole thing, step by step! BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE! We've got updates on the stories that didn't get the headlines this week - the odd Nunes revelations about Trump's dealings abroad, the Gorsuch hearing, and some terrible things that are happening to your privacy. Relive the glory of Paul Ryan's massive defeat (long time coming) with us!
