BTL #294 - Brent's Back - 8/6/18

This week on BTL, Brent makes his triumphant return. (Remember him?!) We give the play-by-play of who’s claiming they know the play-by-play of Don Jr.’s meeting with Russian officials, discuss the Kirstjen Nielsen “triumphant” trip to Puerto Rico to thank everybody for definitely not bungling the recovery efforts, and go deep into the Netroots-fueled 2020 speculation-mania! Plus there are primaries Tuesday, and don’t worry, John Kelly’s given up completely so his facial expressions will be around for years to come.

BTL #270 - The Land of Mental Vacations - 12/4/17

This week on BTL, it's a special bicoastal rant-fest about the GOP tax bill, with the unexpected addition of a special Puerto Rico tax bill cameo! Plus, everything you need to know about Mike Flynn and what his plea deal means. Then a brief vacation in FoxNewsLand, a magical place where nothing much is wrong, Roy Moore doesn't exist, Mike Flynn hasn't turned yet, and there is no tax bill. Join us there for a few minutes, then call your reps because shit has gotten VERY real.

We're flying rundown-free because we snuck this recording in after a packed weekend at Politicon, but we've got our reactions to the comic-con for wonks, plus of course the healthcare vote, Priebus exit, Scaramucci living up to his operatic name, Trump's VERY on-brand boy scouts speech, and more!

BTL #253 - The Handshake - 7/17/17

This week on BLT, there's lots to discuss. The Senate health bill, John McCain's head-health, Donald Trump Jr's legal fees, it's all so much!  But none of it was quite as important as the 30+ second mega-handshake seen round the world.  Tune in for all that and a sinkhole!
