This week on BTL, sexual assault resignations continue, and yet the Orange Furher is still the president! Plus, Puerto Rico's Maria death count is nowhere near what the official count says, America's policy on Israel is being dictated by nothing related to what the official history of the region says, the firebunny video's truth isn't quite what one man says, and Donald Trump watches significantly more television than he himself says. Everybody is doing this saying thing wrong. Good grief.
This week on BTL, it's a special bicoastal rant-fest about the GOP tax bill, with the unexpected addition of a special Puerto Rico tax bill cameo! Plus, everything you need to know about Mike Flynn and what his plea deal means. Then a brief vacation in FoxNewsLand, a magical place where nothing much is wrong, Roy Moore doesn't exist, Mike Flynn hasn't turned yet, and there is no tax bill. Join us there for a few minutes, then call your reps because shit has gotten VERY real.
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, Lila's father joins us for a look under the hood of Trump's new "America First" budget proposal, which seems to put a lot of America-America, most notably the elderly and poor, starkly last. But don't worry, rich people will make out well! And really, who else counts? Then, it was a week notable for it's many diplomacy stumbles but luckily Rex Tillerson doesn't seem that concerned about it. He's sleeping fine! And even Fox News finds that most things, but most notably Bernie Sanders, Planned Parenthood, and Obamacare, are far more popular than the president. It's all that plus some theories on North Korean politics so make sure to tune in!
This week on BTL, we say goodbye to our favorite third-place winner, #LittleMarco Rubio. After what can only be described as a totally predictable and fully expected loss in his home state of Florida, Rubio leaves the title of "Cuban" to Sen. Ted Cruz. Also leaving the race is Rubio's ambition to ever serve in public office again. See ya never Private Citizen Rubio! Luckily the Rubio-less GOP has a foolproof plan to defeat Trump. It involves claiming that they have a plan to defeat Trump and starting the hashtag #NeverTrump and the only thing you need to know about it is that it's totally going to work. Right? RIGHT?! And then there's some non-election news for once. Can you imagine?! Remember those days? Take a walk down memory lane with us! All that and tons more this week on a new BTL podcast!
IOWA, IT'S TIME TO CAUCUS!! We have everything here need to know going into today's official start of the primary season, plus all the dirt on the Hillary and Bernie's newly agreed upon Democratic Debate schedule, last week's Trump-less but not very reassuring GOP Debate (were they all always so boring?), and Hillary's never-ending email dramas. All that plus we've reached maximum rage in the Flint water scandal/atrocity/fucking terribleness, and we have some important lessons for the GOP about when a group of liars should try to fool the judicial system and when they should just...stay home. Follow along all week as we report and dissect the Iowa results!
Never in our lives have we had so much to say about performance art, meta commentary, and...idiots. Lots of thoughts on idiots. Plus, panic on the right, left, and center about the rollercoaster of a primary and the gloves come off in the Clinton-verse! Oh, and it’s super duper hot these days and it will be forever and ever so...that’s cool.
This week on BTL...Tuesday’s election results were total garbage. You guys have to remember to vote (Kentucky, we're talking to you)! Also, don't bother learning anything about the life story of GOP frontrunner Ben Carson. Apparently it's all a lie AND science isn't science and history isn't really history and everything you know is wrong. Don't worry though, he promises from the bottom of his heart that the anecdote about him stabbing somebody is totes true. Plus, we'll tell you everything you didn't even know you didn't know about MSNBC's (secret?) Democratic candidates forum, last month's impressive jobs numbers, and the latest in the war on Christmas. Oh, and Sinkhole radio returns with an important PSA so listen like your life depends on it!
