We brought podcast friend-extraordinaire Grant Sloss back into the studio to discuss the results (some still forthcoming!!) of the 2018 midterms. Fun was had by all! Then…the aftermath. We told you Trump would get a little crazy, right? We were right.
This week on BTL, the depths of the simple things Trump doesn't understand are amazing sometimes, right? Like how health insurance works, how press offices work, how Russia works. It's an adventure every day with this guy. Plus, meet Anthony Scaramucci - he's just like his namesake! And yeah, Sean Spicer is (was?) literally the worst kind of office person on earth. And maybe, just maybe, that's why we loved him.
This week on BTL, friend-of-the-podcast Carla Nordstrom joins us in the studio to talk through the week in Trump and tell us about her project at seedsofdemocracy.org! We analyze Trump's joint session speech and brief window of glory, Jeff Sessions' ensuing scandal less then 12 hours later, Saturday's wire-tapping Twitter tour de force, and lots more. We've also got updates on how Democrats are faring in local elections, how voting in general is faring in America, and how Oprah Winfrey is faring now that rich celebrities can be the president. Another week of pure political insanity - don't miss a moment of it! It'll (hopefully) never happen again!
This week on BLT...will anybody actually be at the inauguration on Friday? So far it looks like it's going to be Hillary Clinton and Code Pink. Plus, Trump will save the ungrateful voters in John Lewis’ totally functioning district whether they want him to or not, and Ben Carson will stop all those pesky gay people from getting their extra rights. What a relief! Meanwhile, Cory Booker shoots himself in the 2020 foot, the GOP signals their plans to take away your healthcare are just as ill conceived as you imagined, and nobody does a press conference like Donald Trump and a stack of blank paper. Bonus: we did it, America! #GoldenShowers has now officially trended on Twitter. Come for the news, stay for the...news!
