This week on BTL, a quick and dirty discussion of Trump's tax proposal and the ongoing House and Senate budget negotiations. Plus, Trump's anti-Veteran tendencies re-emerge and we've finally found a conspiracy theory we can get behind! Don't believe us? #DontCare. And finally, all the dirt on this week's DNC meeting in Sin City!
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 do a deep dive into the French presidential elections because they're somehow even more entertaining than our own. Then we review Trump's first 100 days; he doesn't have much to show for it, and let's hope this week doesn't change that. Plus, there's Georgia's 6th, Chaffez's last, and the Tom Perez/Bernie Sanders sideshow that perfectly sums up why "unity" is eluding the Dems. All that, plus an in-depth analysis of Bill O'Reilly's hopefully not-prophetic work of fiction in which an angry, disgraced newsman who's out of a job murders all of his enemies. Eek! Watch out, women everywhere.
This week on BTL, our days may be numbered thanks to tensions with North Korea, but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate the arrival of a brand new giraffe into the world! Plus we've got more on the White House's chaotic behind-closed-door know-nothingness and an update on the week in Trumpian Holocaust denial. Then, it's a look at the local races shaping the Dem message for 2018 (or so we hope) and a reminder that being paid to protest is a career we'd definitely take up if only anybody on earth was offering.
This week on BTL...it's updates from #ResistanceRecess! People got active, got creative, and got angry in all the best possible ways. Plus, the DNC chair race results, why Donald Trump should be careful about pushing the paper of record too far, and updates on all the new and exciting (and terrible) laws and policies that will make life for even legal immigrants a living hell. Come for the terrible news, stay for the many many many creative ways constituents are coming up with to get their reps' attention. Oh, and join us for our own little action as well!
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 a special bi-coastal BTL, we've got a few things to get off our chests. Yes, we know all about Russia's hacking and yes we're horrified. Yes we know all about the electoral college vote and yes we're terrified. But no we wont accept that the Democrats lost this race solely because of James Comey and Voldermort Putin, and we'll tell you why politically it's not even worth making the claim. Plus we're all over covering our history of fake news and future of fake morals! Listen while you load of up on latke potatoes or Christmas ham (or a nondenominational food of your choice)! Then give us the gift of a rating on iTunes.
This week on BTL, it's everything we didn't cover in our mid-week special election edition! We've got the latest on President-Elect Trump's (ick it hurt to say that!) first week as a legitimate person, and he's already appointed a white nationalist to his cabinet so things are going predictably. We do have a little good news too, though! Come for the horrifying Trump update, stay for the local election results! Keep on keepin' on, guys! There's nothing else we can do.
