This week BTL is back with an IN DEPTH discussion of the Democratic Debates, Puerto Rico’s amazing activism, and all the horrible news you missed while we were gone. Brent says some confusing things about Marianne Williamson (NOT ENDORSEMENT THINGS, CALM DOWN) but it gives us a chance to discuss our favorite topic - our prescience when it comes to presidential election cycles and how they work. Also, it’s summer recess in Congress which means…it’s townhall season! Go bug your reps!
This week on the podcast, we have breaking news: finally, a major billionaire has actually decides NOT to run for president! WHAT? Plus, now that ratings are what matter, the Democrats have decided to produce world’s greatest reality debate. But this was also a week that a Judge pleaded with America to remember that Paul Manafort was a great man before his decades long crime spree. It’s had ups and downs.
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, 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, join us for a walk down memory lane as we recount every single horrifying thing that happened in the last week. Yup, week. Trump has only been the president for a week. We're already mid-constitutional crisis, we've already pissed off most of the world, and Trump's staff keeps tweeting us their passwords so things are leakier over there than a paper pipe. On the bright side, if you enjoy protesting, you'll have lots of opportunities coming up. Also, if you enjoy engaging in Wikipedia mischief, this next year is probably going to be your holy grail.
Also if you're pissed, get involved at the local level! Don't miss our interview with William Floyd of the LA County Democrats to find out more about what that means.
Many of us are still less than enthused by the Clinton/Kaine ticket, but as your Facebook friends rant about voters who haven’t gone full-Clinton being traitors to the human race, they might be forgetting that that there are thousands of ways to fight the rise of Il Duce without putting time and money into his heavily compromised opponent. Here are some ideas.
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!
