This week on BTL, Trump tantrums his way around the G7, dictates his way through the U.S. - North Korea summit, and rips poor desperate immigrant families apart while we obsess about the California primaries! (Whose hobby is better? We’ll let you decide.) We’ve got results from CA and the other June 5th states, as well as some ire about the poor children being torn from their parents in the name of cruelty [cough]…sorry safety (?). All that plus visiting information if you want to get some facetime with Paul Manafort while he’s in jail. We all have a few things we’d like to say to his face, right?
This week on the podcast, West Hollywood Mayor John Heilman stops by amidst the chaos to talk about resistance at the local level. Plus we've got updates on the gun control discussion (or lack thereof) post-Vegas, some weird new story elements in the reality show that is life with Donald Trump, a look at the chaos in Catalonia, and more!
This week on BTL...the endtimes are here! They apparently consist of wall-to-wall scary weather and newscasters insisting on going out in said weather. But we've got all the news you missed while watching Patrick Oppmann report live from the 150 mph gusts in Calbarien, Cuba. That includes the surprise breakout stars of the fall - Chuck and Nancy, out there saving us from ourselves (and Trump). We've also got all the news on DACA, De Vos's plan to ruin Title IX, and so much more!
This week on BTL, we add Jared Kushner to the list of Trump's “very good people” who may or may not have committed treason, plus Trump meets with the Pope (and, according to the internet, the twins from "The Shining") to talk peace, MLK, and other topics he already can't remember. Then we talk Trump and America through the real deal with NATO, and recall every hilarious golf cart-laden moment of the G7 Summit in Italy. Plus, inspired by the Luv Gov, the Alabama GOP is out early to get some Strange. All this plus rainbows and sunshine (ie doom and gloom predictions)! Hope you enjoyed your local Memorial Day parade and rested up over the holiday because the hits just keep coming!
Dmitry Zotman sits in for Brent as we discuss the AHCA (aka Achoo) passage in the house, the RELIEF of a boring moderate winning the French presidential elections (how far we've fallen), the chaos in Venezuela, Trump’s Monday press storm, and more! And a speedy recovery to Brent, whose trip to Mexico left him with a terrible death-illness that Donald Trump's continued existence is NOT helping go away.
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, we get philosophical. Democracy as we knew it never really existed, wars rationale is in the eye of the beholder, and Michele Bachmann knows it all (according to her God). Plus, the Trump royal dramas begin (this is going to make a great TV show later), the House Intelligence Committee basically ends, and Alabama sends their sitting Governor, the "luv guv," to jail. Come for the news, stay for the sandal!
