    BTL #256 - WHEN EVEN THE “BEST WORDS” FAIL - 8/21/17

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Hapless White Nationalists fail to grasp the irony of carrying tiki torches while marching against people of color. The Tiki torch industry responded with fire. The police did not.

    2. Trump does not have the “best words” when it comes to racism, and that may be his biggest problem

    3. Trump tries to break up with his CEO exes, but they did it first! What a loser!

    4. Beelzebub Bannon is gone, just in time for us to discover that Trump has always been the White House’s leading white supremacist

    5. Catalonia is the latest victim of what Trump might call “real terrorism,” meaning it wasn’t committed by white guys with torches

    6. Americans grasp onto the once-in-a-lifetime eclipse as sign Trump’s days are numbered. (We are desperate out here.)

    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
