This week on BTL, comedian Thomas Dale joins us to talk UN, North Korea, healthcare and...dotards. Obviously. We've got everything from Trump's amazing/disastrous UN visit, the war of words between "Rocket Man" and our own national "Dotard," healthcare that's risen from the dead and about to destroy everything we hold dear, and the most/only interesting thing that's every happening in the history of football (sorry Brent!). All that plus our usual lunacy!
This week on BTL, the depths of the simple things Trump doesn't understand are amazing sometimes, right? Like how health insurance works, how press offices work, how Russia works. It's an adventure every day with this guy. Plus, meet Anthony Scaramucci - he's just like his namesake! And yeah, Sean Spicer is (was?) literally the worst kind of office person on earth. And maybe, just maybe, that's why we loved him.
This week on BTL, we ONCE AGAIN try our hand at reporting late-breaking and oh-so-exciting news! #TrumpRussia is getting really delicious...and by that we mean scary. Also we've got dispatches from America's president's trip to the G20 and our president's trip to the G20, as well as some thoughts on Mark Penn's failing-ness and the permanent tragedy that is Chris Christie. Oh, and healthcare updates. Duh!
This week on BTL, healthcare reform didn't get through before the holiday, but we're still worried about Mitch McConnell's evil plans to woo new GOPers to the cause. Trump, meanwhile, is so worried that he's changed his mind about his position yet again. On the Democratic side though, mind changes are a good thing! The writing on the wall is increasingly clear - Medicare for all is going to be a defining issue of 2020. All that plus Gorsuch being a problem already, a shake-up at Our Revolution, and Donald Trump's latest Twitter shenanigans.
This week, it's our first even international BTL! We spent it discussing important matters like the Paris Climate Accords, the AHCA and health insurance markets, Britain's upcoming election, and COVFEFE. Yeah, we're not above it. We're not above it at all. Tune in for the carefully considered thoughts on the health insurance industry, environmental policy discussion, and...silly jokes because the president can't type/spell/stay awake while tweeting!
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, it's our last chance to reach you before we all VOTE! VOTING! VOTING IS SO FUN! YOU SHOULD DO IT! We're here with all the latest polling, updates on the senate, info on the props, suggestions about where and how to get involved in #GOTV efforts, and so so so so much excitement about voting! So much! Plus, did you hear that recent FBI emails nonsense is already over? What a relief! Another relief: Trump's Twitter privileges were revoked. Who knew it was that easy? Tune in for it all and whatever you do, figure out where you're going to park BEFORE you get to the polling place. It's so much easier.
