    BTL #249 - LONG-WINDED DETAILS - 6/21/17

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Breaking election news reported as it happens!

    2. Democrats proud of the work they’ve done forking tons of money into...a “radically boring” candidate.  We’ve still got it.

    3. Democrats attempting to protect America from healthcare ruin with the one skill they definitively have: making extra long-winded speeches about details

    4. The Senate GOP still too shy to tell us how their Obamacare repeal bill works out for regular Americans. (We're sure it’s not because it will take away all our healthcare, don’t worry.)

    5. Jared Kushner has an audible voice that we have now heard

    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 #231 - #NEVERFORGET TO #NEVERREMEMBER - 2/7/17

     

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. America re-lives the horrors of election 2016 in football form

    2. Trump’s SCOTUS pick doesn’t care about your uterus

    3. The Muslim Ban is a great example of why you have a lawyer look at a contract before you sign it

    4. A filibuster-genre Senate talk-a-thon is underway because not enough Senators had performed their school grizzly bear attack material

    5. Trump has no idea wtf he’s doing or signing.  His staff has no idea where the light switches are.

    6. The White House congratulates rising star Frederick Douglass on finally getting his 15 minutes of fame

    7. Let’s #NeverForget to #NeverRemember the Bowling Green Massacre

    BTL #230 - THE GOSSIPY SIDE OF A CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS [SPECIAL GUEST: WILLIAM FLOYD, LA COUNTY DEMS] - 1/30/17

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. It’s week one of the Trump presidency and we already have a constitutional crisis on our hands

    2. Steve Bannon must be on some sort of writing retreat, having a very prolific week ruining America by edict

    3. Trump will bravely investigate only the kind of voter fraud that doesn’t exist but makes him lose popular votes

    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

    6. We interview with William Floyd from the LA County Dems and talk about the local stuff you should know [Begins: 1:18:20...yup it's that kind of week]

    7. Trump’s butt takes the mantle as most unfortunate meme of the week/history

    BTL #228 - EXTRA RIGHTS - 1/16/17

     

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Trump will save the ungrateful voters in John Lewis’ perfectly safe, functioning district whether or not they want him to

     

    2. Ben Carson will stop all those pesky gay people from getting their usual, totally real extra rights

     

    3. Presidential hopeful Cory Booker has a typical Democrat problem and can’t read obvious political tea leaves

     

    4. Republicans don’t let lack of plan slow them down from taking away your healthcare

     

    5. Interestingly it looks like we’ll be crying less under Trump than we were during Obama and Biden’s final buddy comedy

     

    6. Nobody does a press conference like Donald Trump and a stack of blank papers

     

    7. We did it, America!  #GoldenShowers has now officially trended on Twitter.
