This week on BTL, the hilarious comedian/actor/fellow Bernie-phile Helen Hong joins us in the studio to talk Bernie, Hillary, Nunes (w/ new pronunciation!), treason, Trump, HB2 and so much more! Plus our heads simply cannot grasp the greatness that is Maxine Waters in a fight, the silliness that is Sean Spicer in a tan, and the awesomeness that is Justin Trudeau's history with Matthew Perry (pt 2!).
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.
This week on BTL, we've got everything you need to know about every "health of a candidate for elected office" scandal currently in play. Buckle up, there are a lot of them! Plus, Trump is now so inconsistent he's not ever sure if he's in favor of deporting Mexicans anymore. Who is Trump without deportations? Is he even real? And the new Sanders org is in hot water because the only place currently experiencing revolutions is the organization's leadership. All this plus lots more fun, so listen, then rate us on iTunes!
This week on the podcast... Don't you want to have as much fun as Bill Clinton is having in this picture? Then listen to us discuss the DNC and all that transpired behind the scenes on this week's podcast! Plus, Trump's worst media week ever, and some nifty campaigning ideas for the progressives among us!
This week on BTL, we do our best to make up for our one-week absence! We try our hand at reporting breaking news, plus we've got a look ahead at the DNC and a look behind at the (terrifying, disorganized, slapstick-ridden) RNC. All that plus a discussion on the meaning of your vote and when voter outreach works and doesn't, plus an exciting (read: horrible) update on the week in racism. And jokes. We've got jokes too!
This week on BTL, we know it's hot and hard to focus on anything but popsicles and swimming pools, but we'd love some answers regarding what our actual election results were here! 1.5 million ballots still uncounted? Let's fix that! Then our two great loves, gun control and filibusters, collided last week for an epic democratic-led 15 hour gun control filibuster that warmed our hearts and lifted our spirits but possibly wont result in any actual change. And those are only two of the zillions of things we covered this week. We'd think of more to tease but it's too hot. Just listen. We promise it'll be fun.
This week on BTL...GOSSIP! Nothing like some good old infighting among the Democrats to get us excited about the endless casual insult and loaded compliment possibilities! Plus we've got primary results from Kentucky and Oregon, an attempt to refute accepted science (Republicans get away with that all the time so why not us?) and detailed reports of the greatest day in Congressional history. Finally, we're almost as cool as the British! Oh, and Oklahoma is up to legit shenanigans in their quest to rid the state of doctors and women...or at least that's what we assume their crazy abortion bill is all about. That and tons more if you click RIGHT HERE!
This week on BLT...it's chaos at the Nevada Democratic Convention! Sit-ins, security, fleeing...all the best kinds of excitement! Plus, we've got election results from West Virginia and Nebraska, a week of Donald Trump trying to figure out how to be a frontrunner (answer: insist that you're very smart but don't confirm anything else), and SCOTUS updates from the a newly 4-4 court! Apparently their new strategy is to stop making rulings until we can break the stalemate. All that plus the intersection of politics and gossip like you've never experienced it before! Welcome to Rep. Grayson v. Sen. Reid, the ultimate battle. It's yet another week of glory, so don't miss it!
