    BTL #288 - HOW TO KILL AT DYING - 5/14/18

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Apparently in this reality, a porn star’s lawyer can outsmart the presidential legal team without breaking much of a sweat. America!

    2. Still waiting with baited breath for that Big Beautiful shiny new Iran Deal.

    3. Eric Schneiderman aimed to ruin Trump’s life, but ruined ours instead

    4. John McCain is giving us all a lesson in how to really kill at dying

    5. In a surprise turn, “china people” is not a prefered term in West Virginia.  Progress?

    6. Trump’s least favorite thing: presidenting.  Trump’s favorite thing: toys and soda.

    2. Unsurprisingly, Kim Jong-Un and Mike Pompeo get along famously

    3. Michael Cohen will guard your secrets until it no longer serves him

    4. Not content to screw over America with just one tax bill, Paul Ryan looks to pass another before going to spend more time with his kids.  Right…

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Easter: Miracle or confusing pagan tradition? We investigate.

    2. Trump’s personal doctor now leads the government’s biggest bureaucracy. In other news, I’m now qualified to teach you to scuba dive.

    3. The Census: now with new opportunities to #resist.

    4. To police, being young, black, and holding a cellphone makes you more dangerous than being young, white, bonkerstown insane, and holding an AR-15. America!

    6. Because we knew it would eventually come to this, Trump just cast a Disney Channel star in the roll of “White House Communications Staff.”
