This week on BTL, sexual assault resignations continue, and yet the Orange Furher is still the president! Plus, Puerto Rico's Maria death count is nowhere near what the official count says, America's policy on Israel is being dictated by nothing related to what the official history of the region says, the firebunny video's truth isn't quite what one man says, and Donald Trump watches significantly more television than he himself says. Everybody is doing this saying thing wrong. Good grief.
