    BTL #304 - PEACHES THE FRIENDLY WALL - 1/14/19

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Anybody you’ve ever heard of (and some that you haven’t) is running for president.

    2. Shutdown update, day 6000: No news. Shutdown continues. Send park janitors...or something.

    3. GOP finally draws soft line in the sand with Steve King, so they do eventually semi-censure white nationalism. Just takes 16 years to get their story straight.

    4. Trump is a foreign agent. Deal with it.

    5. If anybody’s selling Iran-bombing excuses or plans, John Bolton is in the market.

    6. You could be picketing right now.

    7. We’re calling Trump’s wall Peaches from now on so now it’s friendly.

    In Which We Discuss:

    *Brent is back! Yay!*

    5. Jeff Sessions is stopping injustice in its tracks, one secularist at a time

    6. The judge in the Manafort trial is hungry for justice...and Baked Alaska
