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 BTL, we ONCE AGAIN try our hand at reporting late-breaking and oh-so-exciting news! #TrumpRussia is getting really delicious...and by that we mean scary. Also we've got dispatches from America's president's trip to the G20 and our president's trip to the G20, as well as some thoughts on Mark Penn's failing-ness and the permanent tragedy that is Chris Christie. Oh, and healthcare updates. Duh!
This week on BTL, healthcare reform didn't get through before the holiday, but we're still worried about Mitch McConnell's evil plans to woo new GOPers to the cause. Trump, meanwhile, is so worried that he's changed his mind about his position yet again. On the Democratic side though, mind changes are a good thing! The writing on the wall is increasingly clear - Medicare for all is going to be a defining issue of 2020. All that plus Gorsuch being a problem already, a shake-up at Our Revolution, and Donald Trump's latest Twitter shenanigans.
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 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!
