This week on BTL, everybody hates Trumpcare including all of the non-asshole community, most of the GOP, more of the white supremacist community than you'd guess, and most mammals and sea creatures. Jury is still out on reptiles - after all, Paul Ryan supports it. Then, let us remind you of the many ways in which the monthly Jobs Report is never to be trusted, something that's especially true when the president tells you to only start trusting it now that he's in office. And finally, ever dream of seeing the White House? Apparently it's as easy as hopping a fence and...walking right in? All this and more chaos awaits!
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, 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!
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.
