This week on BTL, #ResistanceRecess has begun! Check online for events near you! Plus, this week had all the news and these days that doesn't even feel like a shock. Flynn is out, Puzder is out, an epic Trump Press Conference graced the airwaves, a man literally named McMaster is in, and we celebrated new fake terrorism (#neverremember again and always). Plus, Chris Christie unwittingly provides the perfect metaphor for this whole ride so far. Check it out, rate us on iTunes and Stitcher, and leave a comment!
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 a bicoastal BTL, it's tales of the largest march in US history! We got crowd counts as well as stories of attending on both coasts! (Well done LA! 750,000?!) And guess what wasn't the largest gathering in US history? Duh, the inauguration, despite what Trump and Sean Spicer's "Alternative Facts" may claim. Plus, we've got a rundown of the week's insano cabinet confirmation hearings, the already mounting tragedy that is Trump's first days in office, and, most importantly, the real deal with Sean Spicer's five-year feud with Dippin' Dots.
This week on BLT...will anybody actually be at the inauguration on Friday? So far it looks like it's going to be Hillary Clinton and Code Pink. Plus, Trump will save the ungrateful voters in John Lewis’ totally functioning district whether they want him to or not, and Ben Carson will stop all those pesky gay people from getting their extra rights. What a relief! Meanwhile, Cory Booker shoots himself in the 2020 foot, the GOP signals their plans to take away your healthcare are just as ill conceived as you imagined, and nobody does a press conference like Donald Trump and a stack of blank paper. Bonus: we did it, America! #GoldenShowers has now officially trended on Twitter. Come for the news, stay for the...news!
This week on BTL, we've got all the latest from the last TWO weeks!! Special attention is paid, of course to the reverse love triangle that is Trump-Romney-Kellyanne Conway, but we've also got lessons in (non)diplomacy from our incoming POTUS, the legacy of the man simply known as Fidel, and the fatal sign that your latest accomplishment was REAL unimpressive: Sarah Palin joining Democrats to condemn it. All that plus our recount-fever update, and the story of the giant, purposeless Holiday Hole.
This week on BTL, it's everything we didn't cover in our mid-week special election edition! We've got the latest on President-Elect Trump's (ick it hurt to say that!) first week as a legitimate person, and he's already appointed a white nationalist to his cabinet so things are going predictably. We do have a little good news too, though! Come for the horrifying Trump update, stay for the local election results! Keep on keepin' on, guys! There's nothing else we can do.
Election Countdown: Nine Days! This week on BTL, we dissect they latest of many October Surprises - this has been the surprisiest final month in election history! Clinton's emails might be a non-starter, but the Comey controversy is just getting started. Plus, polls, Standing Rock, our first proof that voter fraud is real (among Trump voters, duh) and an update on Iceland's Pirate Party elections. WE'RE SO READY FOR THIS TO BE OVER!! But, then, what would we talk about?
This week on BTL, we've cover the important news: Bobby Pin-Gate 2016, Michele Bachmann's latest talking spell, and, Hillary Clinton's continued technological failings. Oh, and I guess while we're at it we get to Trump's surprise Mexico trip (?!!?!), polls, some news about where on earth Clinton's been for the last month, and other more traditional "news" news. We bring it all because we care. We're THOSE friends. You're welcome.
