    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Coastal liberal elites everywhere furious about this week’s education in horrifying and bizarre gun accessories

    2. Trump, clearly studying the elements of story, now focused heavily on the art of tragic foreshadowing

    3. Donald Trump: grabber of pussies and pussy healthcare

    4. West Hollywood mayor John Heilman stops by because WeHo is just that kind of friendly and adorable small town

    5. Old timey sounding geopolitical battles are playing out in real time in Catalonia

    6. Donald Trump has the best feuds. There is nobody with better feuds than Donald Trump.

    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
