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.
This week on the podcast, travel through random election Tuesday with us as we learn the results of the Georgia and South Carolina special elections! Plus some thoughts on the AHCA, why it's bad, and how we can stop it. Also, the speculation can finally cease -- we've heard Jared Kushner's voice and it's both super generic and not at all what we expected. Come for the election fun, stay for the healthcare!
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!
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 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!
