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!
This week on BTL, when will the powers that be agree that America has been through enough?! This week we did it all: re-lived the horrors of election 2016 in football form, re-lived the horrors of Antonin Scalia in Trump-SCOTUS-pick form, celebrated the alt-facts version of Black History Month (thanks white people for creating black history!), commemorated the worst imaginary terrorist attack to ever hit US soil (#NeverRemember), and accidentally thwarted a coup attempt by cleverly allowing a complete idiot to attempt a coup with any professional assistance. Though this week felt like seven months in thought-time, we can confirm that it's only been one week in real time and the fact that we made it through is certainly something to celebrate. Join the fun!
Join us this week on BTL as we discuss where our medium tolerance of the idea of maybe voting for Hillary Clinton in the general met it's natural end. Misrepresenting corporate ties was one (bad) thing, but misrepresenting single-payer healthcare and Bernie Sander's (superior) health platform is where we draw the line. We're legit not having her in any way shape or form! Come for the rage, stay for our rundowns of the rest of this action-packed week: Tuesday's State of the Union, Thursday's GOP Debate, Sunday's Dem Debate, and the latest on Iran followed by our coverage of the infuriating/criminal Flint, MI water situation. The episode is long but worth it!
