Last weekend we went to Iowa to visit the nation's most famous state fair and as many campaign offices as we could get to in the home of 2020 first primary-mania! Here's our take on who's campaigns were a mess, who's poised to surprise us, which conspiracy theories we developed along the way.
This week BTL is back with an IN DEPTH discussion of the Democratic Debates, Puerto Rico’s amazing activism, and all the horrible news you missed while we were gone. Brent says some confusing things about Marianne Williamson (NOT ENDORSEMENT THINGS, CALM DOWN) but it gives us a chance to discuss our favorite topic - our prescience when it comes to presidential election cycles and how they work. Also, it’s summer recess in Congress which means…it’s townhall season! Go bug your reps!
This week on BTL...the Bad News Live Crew is back! Check out their next live show on Feb 18th at the Acme Theater in LA! In the meantime, however, catch them reliving the million hours of news the Trump administration so thoughtfully produced in the last week. First a foremost, let's #neverremember to #newforget a new category of fake terrorist victims - those (zero) lost in the Atlanta attacks. Plus, we've got news on the Muslim Ban's court progress, updates on the senate confirmations (DeVos, Sessions, Price, oh my!), thoughts on why and how #shepersisted, whether or not Hillary Clinton has persisted, whether or not the Senate should persist, and more! Also, anybody with leads for where a person can get some easy D should contact the White House.
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.
