    1. The new Sean Spicer is a Nickelodeon villain who donated to Barack Obama

    2. Russia actually called us thugs this week, which is cute

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Trump and McConnell have hurt John McCain’s brain so badly at this point that it literally clogged

    2. Not even the health insurance industry is as giddy about returning us to pre-ACA days of bankruptcy and death as our government’s own Tom Price

    3. Either Donald Trump is lying to us, or he’s hired clairvoyant lawyers. One of those seems more likely though...

    4. You haven’t seen a handshake until you’ve seen Emmanuel Marcon and Donald Trumps’ three-way knuckle-buster

    5. Donald Trump is winning at Chris Christie’s game of losing. Bigly.

    BTL #252 - LESSON UNLEARNED - 7/11/17

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Some breaking Russia news that's so breaking we don’t have a quip yet!

    2. Trump decides Putin is the perfect person to help us solve our cybersecurity problems since, you know, he’s been ordering all the hacking

    3. Jerry Brown attends the G20 as the president of California and the rest of non-Trump America

    4. For the first time in history, hosting the Celebrity Apprentice may be the key to solving our North Korea quagmire. That’s right, it’s time to call up former contestant Dennis Rodman.

    6. Democrats are desperate to unlearn the lessons of 2016 in any way they can. Free trade anybody?

    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

    3. After seeing how much America loved having their healthcare taken away, GOP is moving to cut even more programs Americans depend on

    4. Trump plans first trip as president to the only vacation destination tackier than Mar-A Lago, Saudi Arabia’s royal palace

    5. It’s 2017 and white nationalists still bring torches to their rallies

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Everyone suffers under Trump’s first budget proposal, even Budget Director John Mulvaney, who is now living in a horrifying world without business cards

    5. Even Fox News discovers that the only thing more popular than Planned Parenthood is Bernie Sanders

    6. Confirmed: It’s fine to pull a gun on your co worker at Fox news. Still seeking comment on whether policy allows actual shots to be fired.
