This week on BTL, Brent makes his triumphant return. (Remember him?!) We give the play-by-play of who’s claiming they know the play-by-play of Don Jr.’s meeting with Russian officials, discuss the Kirstjen Nielsen “triumphant” trip to Puerto Rico to thank everybody for definitely not bungling the recovery efforts, and go deep into the Netroots-fueled 2020 speculation-mania! Plus there are primaries Tuesday, and don’t worry, John Kelly’s given up completely so his facial expressions will be around for years to come.
This week on BTL, Brent is back! We dive into the week in Nixonian shenanigans starting with Yates ending with the Comey firing and circling back to why on earth Trump is mentioning "tapes" and other RED FLAGS on Twitter. Plus we've got the latest on the many many (many) celebrities who now, thanks to Trump, think the presidency is within reach. All this and much more! Stay tuned and welcome back Brent!
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.
It's our 200th episode and the news was hilarious just for us! Catch all the latest on the Cruz and Kasich drop-outs, the loyalty war brewing within the GOP, the most hilariously misguided Trump social media outreach to date, and so much more! We've got the latest on the Dem delegate dramas, the Veepstakes, and some unsolicited advice for Hillary Clinton! 200 of these suckers! What a world!
This week on another bi-coastal BTL, Hillary goes full "Shillary" on a Greenpeace activist, causing the world's greatest photo (at left) to be taken. She's super tired of being attacked for her record and is withholding any debating pearls of genius from the state of New York until we all agree to stop talking about it. Things aren't going much better on the right, where all three candidates are now refusing to vote for each other. It's a real race through Wisconsin and onto New York, where we assume Trump will explain which of the five positions he expressed on abortion this week are actually his. Then we're on to a rundown of the GOP's slate of lesser-known presidential candidates, at least one of whom thinks God has cured him of leukemia three times. Enjoy this primary downtime with us as your guides!
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!
This week on a special bi-coastal BTL, all hell breaks loose in the GOP primary in an ever-mounting flurry of desperate party maneuvers and bizarre Donald Trump quotes. Christ Christie has been kidnapped and cannot be saved so let's not worry about him anymore, but is anybody going to tell Rubio that his time might be up? Also, a rowdy Democratic Debate in Flint, MI, election results from all the "super" election days a person could ask for, CPAC, Ted Cruz's booger-eating, and so much more! How is it possible that every week tops the last? We're exhausted, you guys, but we do it all for you!
This week on an all-new BTL, Donald Trump's Nevada blowout saw him promising that he's going to bring us “so much everything” when he’s president. If "everything" involves more of his accidental slam poetry, then we're in. If it involves more racism, however, we're not. Will update. Plus, Thursday's GOP Debate was more bananas than ever and showed an emerging trend in the GOP field: campaigning exclusively via insult comedy. (Policy proposals are so 2015.) Also, anybody who’s anybody in whatever the opposite of MENSA is endorsed Donald Trump this week, Clinton had a BLOWOUT win in South Carolina, and Super Tuesday is upon us! (All signs point to Texas is proving once again that it can’t be trusted.) Then there's the NY Times' sudden Clinton takedown, some intelligentsia speculation that for once isn't about Beyonce, and the newest kind of militia to look out for in the post-Bundy world: toddlers. It's yet another week for the books and we have it all here!
