This week on BTL, we're back in the same room and ready to retrace the full saga of last week from Obama-pilfered Monday to insanity-laced Tuesday to Hurricane Friday. It was an exhausting beginning to a terrifying weekend filled with flooding, off-topic tweets, and resignations. Help us help you help everybody understand what on earth happened!
This week on BTL, Wealthcare is still anybody is talking about, and we're here to give you a running list of who, to date, is for it, against it, undecided, and especially evil. Plus, some thoughts on the GOP and guns, the Democrats and women, single-payer's worst enemies, and our "new" policies on Cuba. And finally, Jesus Christ, will we ever get a guilty verdict in the police the shooting of an innocent black man (or woman... or child...)?!
This week, it's our first even international BTL! We spent it discussing important matters like the Paris Climate Accords, the AHCA and health insurance markets, Britain's upcoming election, and COVFEFE. Yeah, we're not above it. We're not above it at all. Tune in for the carefully considered thoughts on the health insurance industry, environmental policy discussion, and...silly jokes because the president can't type/spell/stay awake while tweeting!
This week on BTL, we add Jared Kushner to the list of Trump's “very good people” who may or may not have committed treason, plus Trump meets with the Pope (and, according to the internet, the twins from "The Shining") to talk peace, MLK, and other topics he already can't remember. Then we talk Trump and America through the real deal with NATO, and recall every hilarious golf cart-laden moment of the G7 Summit in Italy. Plus, inspired by the Luv Gov, the Alabama GOP is out early to get some Strange. All this plus rainbows and sunshine (ie doom and gloom predictions)! Hope you enjoyed your local Memorial Day parade and rested up over the holiday because the hits just keep coming!
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!
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!
