    2. We’ll tell you about some of the mass shootings this week, but not all of them because we lost track.

    3. Rule #1 of the America First caucus is don’t talk about the America First caucus.

    BTL #388 - The Weather Messed With Texas - 2/22/21

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. Rush Limbaugh: A terrible person, now with deadness.

    2. The weather messed with Texas and...Texas folded immediately.

    3. Ted Cruz picked himself up by his bootstraps and flew himself to Cancun for some fun in the sun while Texas froze.

    4. “Joe Manchin saves the day” is a sentence we never thought we’d write.

    5. Famous empath Joe Biden can’t seem to find the aforementioned empathy for minimum wage workers and student borrowers.

    BTL #387 - No Defense - 2/15/21

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. We joked Donald Trump would not need an impeachment defense to get off scott free and he didn’t have one.

    2. Blowback for GOP convictors. Not yet enough blowback for Mitch McConnell’s open hypocrisy.

    3. Trump’s COVID was more serious than we were told. And yet, it was also less serious than it should have been.

    4. I guess local GOP officials would be the ones to know if Antifa caused the Capitol riots because tons of them were active participants.

    5. In the Biden administration, threatening the press gets you suspended, not promoted.

    6. Weather. It’s everywhere. We’ll tell you what to do.

    3. Joe Biden’s version of "Infrastructure Week" might include actual policy

    In Which We Discuss:

    1. RBG is the first woman to lie in state. Ever. 

    2. Trump makes his SCOTUS selection. Dems already prepared with excuses for why they can’t do anything about it.

    3. Goodbye healthcare, it was nice not ever really knowing you.

    4. It turns out #justiceforBreonnaTaylor will remain a hashtag and not a reality.

    5. In another failure to read the room, Nancy Pelosi is now offering even less COVID relief.

    6. The beginning of Joe Biden’s campaign day is usually a statement telling us it’s over.

    In Which we Don't Discuss:

    Trump's taxes. The news didn't break in time to make it into this week's episode. We'll cover it next week!

    BTL #337 - The Last Iowa Caucus - 2/10/20

    [*UPDATED: Audio Issue Fixed*] In Which We Discuss:

    1. We traveled halfway across the country to witness the last Iowa Caucus!

    2. Unfortunately, no one has witnessed any actual results from said Iowa Caucus. 

    3. Taxpayers donate facilities for extensive Trump campaign rally.  Unfortunately for him, Nancy Pelosi’s meme game was strong.

    4. Mitt Romney attempts to save his obituary from the ravages of the Trump era during Senate impeachment vote.

    5. We now grant ABC all future Dem Debates.  That’s enough flying graphics and Wolf Blitzer for this cycle.
