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

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.

When we promise you we’ll post something, you can count on us to post it…weeks later! That’s right, we’re putting up a supercut of the audio from our wild weekend at Politicon!  Check out some clips from the awesome panels and get our thoughts on Ann Coulter’s sanity, our unending love for the queen of 2017 Symone Sanders, and the bathroom habits of Trump supporters.  It’s all here, so enjoy!

BTL #255 - Politicon 2017: Too Many Thoughts - 7/31/17

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 #254 - Branding Mediocrity - 7/24/17

This week on BTL, the depths of the simple things Trump doesn't understand are amazing sometimes, right? Like how health insurance works, how press offices work, how Russia works.  It's an adventure every day with this guy.  Plus, meet Anthony Scaramucci - he's just like his namesake!  And yeah, Sean Spicer is (was?) literally the worst kind of office person on earth. And maybe, just maybe, that's why we loved him.
