    BTL #275 - SCHUMER SNACKS™ - 1/22/18

     In Which We Discuss:

    1. The Women’s March was on again, almost as if one year of Trump has had no positive impact on our lives at all

    2. The government shutdown is a reality and that means Congress had to work over the weekend, so it’s not surprising that..

    3. Lindsey Graham really needs some sustenance. Even Democratic sustenance. Even Schumer Snacks (™) if necessary.

    4. A rare BTL showdown over whether we’re ascribing blame or credit for the shutdown this time around

    5. Aziz Ansari: The moment men were like, “Wait, could #metoo involve me...too?”

    6. Chris Christie is a nobody. Officially.
