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!
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 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!
