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, 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 BTL, MSNBC is shocked, shocked, shocked when the Michigan primary results are exactly what their own exit polls predicted. Plus, this is the week we reached peak Trump: he gave us the best hour of television in American history not to be confused with the best reminder possible that he's a dangerous lunatic that must be stopped. And Hillary Clinton might be channeling her Goldwater Gal past a little too clearly these days. And of course we have election results, a look to this week's primaries, and polling galore!
