3/7/22 - Don’t Say BBB [w/ Dakota Hall from Alliance for Youth Action]

In Which We Discuss:

1. Dakota Hall, ED at Alliance for Youth Action, joins us to talk about young voters, the SOTU, and more!

2. Joe Biden misread the mood of the American people as he jovially celebrated returning to the office during the SOTU. That’s right, he wants to send you to the place where your bosses are!

3. Cisneros and Cuellar head into a runoff in the Democrat’s bellwetheriest bellwether race.

4. Mask laws are ending, so get your noses ready for spring.

5. President Zelensky spoke for all of earth when he asked Rick Scott to please, finally, for the love of God, mute himself

1. The BTL Easter story tradition continues...with a twist!

2. Attacking the Capitol is now more regular than perhaps we’d want

5. Quick! Get more progressive legislation in front of Andrew Cuomo while he’s still scandal-ridden

6. Turns out Amazon knew about the bottle peeing all along

Other than that, Happy Easter!

4. Every day we’re a step closer to Donald Trump potentially representing himself in his second Impeachment trial

6. Schumer is a man who really, really, really doesn’t want to get primaried in 2022. Let’s dash that hope.

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.
