This week on BTL...welp, the shutdown happened. But so did the Women's March so, you know, we've been pulled in lots of directions. We have a full breakdown of both events, plus a very rare BTL disagreement! That and the GREATEST STORY TO GRACE THE NEWSWAVES SINCE BRIDGEGATE. Don't miss out.
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, #ResistanceRecess has begun! Check online for events near you! Plus, this week had all the news and these days that doesn't even feel like a shock. Flynn is out, Puzder is out, an epic Trump Press Conference graced the airwaves, a man literally named McMaster is in, and we celebrated new fake terrorism (#neverremember again and always). Plus, Chris Christie unwittingly provides the perfect metaphor for this whole ride so far. Check it out, rate us on iTunes and Stitcher, and leave a comment!
This week on BTL, shit is getting real here in Trumpistan! Transition team purges already underway? Sen. Jeff Sessions (not to be confused with Rep. Pete Sessions) as Attorney General? Rumors of a shortlist for other cabinet spots that seems like it's punking us? Yes (but no!!!!!!) to all. Plus, Clinton comes out of hiding, Trump violates his own rules and settles his Trump U case, the Democrats expand leadership to include everybody on earth! The election was tough, but now, more than ever, is when to pay attention! Things are about to get a little rocky.
This week on BTL, it's our last chance to reach you before we all VOTE! VOTING! VOTING IS SO FUN! YOU SHOULD DO IT! We're here with all the latest polling, updates on the senate, info on the props, suggestions about where and how to get involved in #GOTV efforts, and so so so so much excitement about voting! So much! Plus, did you hear that recent FBI emails nonsense is already over? What a relief! Another relief: Trump's Twitter privileges were revoked. Who knew it was that easy? Tune in for it all and whatever you do, figure out where you're going to park BEFORE you get to the polling place. It's so much easier.
This week the hosts of Bad News Live stopped by the studio to chat all things election with us and they were a delight! Joins us as we talk Trump, butt heads in the friendliest of ways over Hillary Clinton, and wonk out together over where oh where this is possibly going to lead. Oh, and you know we didn't forget about Chris Christie, right? We'd never.
This week on BTL, we're STILL obsessed with the Olympics, and we're especially obsessed with how obsessed everybody is about the sexism, racism, and classism in this year's Olympics media coverage. Maybe things are getting better? Plus, a Trump campaign shake-up leaves the candidate unmoored from regular political reality once again, and Clinton's transition teams proves she's a little too moored to a reality we'd all rather leave behind. And you know what? Why not make this week the week that you give us a rating on iTunes? What do you have to lose?
This week on an all-new BTL, Donald Trump's Nevada blowout saw him promising that he's going to bring us “so much everything” when he’s president. If "everything" involves more of his accidental slam poetry, then we're in. If it involves more racism, however, we're not. Will update. Plus, Thursday's GOP Debate was more bananas than ever and showed an emerging trend in the GOP field: campaigning exclusively via insult comedy. (Policy proposals are so 2015.) Also, anybody who’s anybody in whatever the opposite of MENSA is endorsed Donald Trump this week, Clinton had a BLOWOUT win in South Carolina, and Super Tuesday is upon us! (All signs point to Texas is proving once again that it can’t be trusted.) Then there's the NY Times' sudden Clinton takedown, some intelligentsia speculation that for once isn't about Beyonce, and the newest kind of militia to look out for in the post-Bundy world: toddlers. It's yet another week for the books and we have it all here!
