This week BTL is back with an IN DEPTH discussion of the Democratic Debates, Puerto Rico’s amazing activism, and all the horrible news you missed while we were gone. Brent says some confusing things about Marianne Williamson (NOT ENDORSEMENT THINGS, CALM DOWN) but it gives us a chance to discuss our favorite topic - our prescience when it comes to presidential election cycles and how they work. Also, it’s summer recess in Congress which means…it’s townhall season! Go bug your reps!
This week on BTL, comedian Thomas Dale joins us to talk UN, North Korea, healthcare and...dotards. Obviously. We've got everything from Trump's amazing/disastrous UN visit, the war of words between "Rocket Man" and our own national "Dotard," healthcare that's risen from the dead and about to destroy everything we hold dear, and the most/only interesting thing that's every happening in the history of football (sorry Brent!). All that plus our usual lunacy!
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!
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, Lila's father joins us for a look under the hood of Trump's new "America First" budget proposal, which seems to put a lot of America-America, most notably the elderly and poor, starkly last. But don't worry, rich people will make out well! And really, who else counts? Then, it was a week notable for it's many diplomacy stumbles but luckily Rex Tillerson doesn't seem that concerned about it. He's sleeping fine! And even Fox News finds that most things, but most notably Bernie Sanders, Planned Parenthood, and Obamacare, are far more popular than the president. It's all that plus some theories on North Korean politics so make sure to tune in!
