Geoff Ginter opens the episode ripping into Tom MacArthur (R-NJ) regarding the AHCA.

The full tirade can be viewed here, and really, everywhere on youtube.

AJ goes after the Bernie haters in his Broadside.

The guys talk more about the Senate’s “health” care bill, the four potential Republican hold-outs, that mandates are basically back (except for businesses), and how many people the CBO estimates will lose coverage…

The guys discuss whether those still supporting the Republican party, particularly on health care are uninformed, simply devoted to their team, or so un-empathetic that people suffering is okay with them.

AJ looks at the poorest states in the US and notices that they’re mostly Red states… and they’re the ones that are likely to suffer most…

The guys talk some about Trump’s lawyer, who is described as “…the Donald Trump of lawyers…” why that’s the best Trump can get (because Trump doesn’t pay and doesn’t shut up) and how Trump being such a douchebag is destroying the entire country’s reputation…

After the break, AJ talks about Deutsche Bank, Kushner, loans, and money laundering, and Lewayne speculates (again) on how the Right would respond to Hillary if the roles were reversed, AJ breaks down the “Fox News” defense of Trump, and Lewayne asks if anyone has an analysis of Trump Et Al’s actions that doesn’t point to criminal, possible treasonous activity.

The guys talk about teams, party loyalty, and psychology, and still can’t figure out how someone can still back Trump’s actions… especially since it looks like the road to totalitarianism…

Mr. Miyagi opens the episode telling Daniel-san to focus past the fear.

Which gives Lewayne the opportunity to talk about Democrats losing in special elections in the Broadside.

The guys talk some about Trump-Russia, Trump confirming that he’s under investigation, and how all of DC seems to be lawyering up.

After the “commercial break,” the guys talk about the GA special election, gerrymandering, and Trumpcare… including quotes from Republicans trying to explain how the AHCA will be “better” for Americans…

Then the guys call it a day before one of them has a rage-aneurysm.

Jeff Sessions starts off by forgetting everything.

A.J. Opens fire on the stupidity and denial inherent in cult adoration, and the unwillingness of the cult members to abandon their leader when his fraud is revealed.

Lewayne can’t wait for Wolfenstein II, so he can start shooting (video game) Nazis in America.

Trump has the creepiest cabinet meeting outside of North Korea

There’s mention made of the COVFEFE act, which aims to make Trump’s tweets part of the presidential record, and a bi-partisan effort to keep Trump from lifting sanctions on Russia without Congressional oversight… Which sounds a lot like they suspect he’s got questionable ties to Russia…

Which leads to talk about about Comey, Mueller, Russiagate, Watergate, etc. and Fox’s Britt Hume tells us why even he thinks Mueller is a great choice for special investigator.

The guys also discuss how Trump’s personality keeps him from doing the smart thing… ANY smart thing… why Trump’s hard-core base can’t take their mouths off his cock, no matter what he does, and why, regardless of what your Libertarian uncle says, there ARE differences between Democrats and Republicans…

Before they wrap up the show, AJ talks about the Senate Republicans’ death –

er, health bill…

Episode 019 – The Backchannels Episode

Charlton Heston emotes his way through the opening of the Broadside, and gives Lewayne a jumping off point to finally tell Trump voters what he really thinks.

The guys talk about Trump’s official first foreign visit, and how Der Speigel, and Europe in general view the current POTUS. Hint – Angela Merkel has been bumped to the position of “Leader Of The Free World.”

Trump, himself, sums up everyone’s view when he reminds us that “The world is laughing at us. They think we’re stupid.” Little did he suspect that HE would be the reason…

Link to Macron’s diss of Trump:

Then things come around to Russia – specifically, Jared Kushner wanting access to Russia’s backdoor… and how, if Hillary were in the same position, the right-wing media wouldn’t have shut up about it.

And, now, Trump’s own lawyer has confirmed that he’s been asked for information from Senate with regard to the Russia business, which leads AJ to talk about the “pattern or evidence,” and the “proper” response when the FBI comes sniffing around, and Trump reminds us that he thinks pleading the fifth is a sign of guilt.

Lewayne reviews previous Presidential scandals and how they fare against the potential Trump/Russia situation, particularly with regard to how deep the hole goes within the Republican party…

The guys get into the difference between them and Right-wing media RE speculation, and how perception is more important to the Right than reality…

Then, well, then there’s some interference…
