    BTL #251 - HEALTHCARE OR A GIRAFFE - 7/3/17

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Trump either wants the house healthcare bill, or the senate bill, or single-payer, or a less mean bill, or a very mean bill, or a total repeal, or a tax bill, or a giraffe.  (The Senate agrees.)

    2. Barriers shattered: Democrats coming out of the closet as...supporting Medicare for all!

    3. It’s an Our Revolution revolution

    4. For anybody who wondered if giving Trump a SCOTUS victory would matter: Yes, Gorsuch is already a problem.

    5. Donald Trump remembers women are still a thing and vows to defeat them and the leftist media that promotes them

    2. Republicans looks to skirt democratic process with their healthcare bill by passing it before going home to celebrate said democratic process

    3. Like corporate America, Democrats ponder a grand strategy of firing a woman to make up for their massive failures

    4. White House to Obama: Why didn’t you stop us from committing treason?

    5. Newly released dashcam video proves there truly is no justice for Philando Castile

    6. Trump’s new policy on Cuba?  Wasting taxpayer money on unnecessary travel audits in attempt to win the friendship of Marco Rubio.

    BTL #248 - AUNTIE MAXINE - 6/12/17

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Auntie Maxine called for impeachment as Nancy Pelosi looked at her shoes today at LA Pride’s #ResistMarch

    2. As usual, Britain has started a new political trend that we hope makes it stateside - not re-electing Conservative asshats

    3. The big Comey testimony takeaway: John McCain has some questions about Hillary Clinton’s emails he still can’t clear up

    4. Senate hard at work on secret Obamacare repeal they thought you might never find out about because...isn’t Comey’s testimony distracting?

    5. But don’t worry - things are only getting better for your friendly neighborhood banker. Not, not Rob Ulster from down the road whose mom was your fourth grade teacher, the one at J.P. Morgan.

    6. Anti-Sharia Americans want only their own identical anti-women, homophobic, restrictive laws to be enforced

    BTL #247 - BILATERAL TALKS - 6/6/17

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Say Goodbye to breathing air! We’re divorcing the Paris Accords to pursue a more meaningful relationship with oil and gas.

    2. When it comes to the Paris Accords, Michael Bloomberg is now the government, which is concerning it its own way.

    3. Anthem is the most evil insurance company for yet another year. Congratulations, guys! The hard work at being absolutely awful is paying off.

    4. California’s state senate passes a single payer bill and the LA Times is none too happy about it. In related news, the LA Times spent this week is wondering why they aren’t that relevant.

    5. London: Terrorized. World: Twitterized. Trump: The same.

    6. Trump’s search for better press covfefe continues

    2. Heartless Republicans declare: “Let them eat iPhones!”

    5. The Terminator claims he’s not running for a California senate seat, so we’ll probably just see him on the ballot then

    6. Couldn’t find a White House tour that fits your schedule?  Getting in is apparently as simple as jumping over a fence and walking directly into the White House.

    4. Apparently Trump’s idea of diplomacy is holding hands with the ladies

    5. Something we can get behind: Trump’s White House staff is the gossipy-ist in history
