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, Wealthcare is still anybody is talking about, and we're here to give you a running list of who, to date, is for it, against it, undecided, and especially evil. Plus, some thoughts on the GOP and guns, the Democrats and women, single-payer's worst enemies, and our "new" policies on Cuba. And finally, Jesus Christ, will we ever get a guilty verdict in the police the shooting of an innocent black man (or woman... or child...)?!
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...do you want to cry tears of joy/frustration/helplessness/anger/inspiration? Good, because you'll have no choice if you try to watch Michelle Obama's final speech as FLOTUS. Other things that might make you cry include: basically anything else that's going on in America. Shootings (the domestic terror kind, stand down war hawks!), gaffes, ineptitude of the highest order by the seasoned professionals in Congress, and a few things that are so bad they're funny like the rumor Hillary Clinton is mulling over a run for the Mayor of NYC. First obstacle: she's never actually lived there. Okay, 2017, let the games begin!
