    BTL #306 - FAVORITE BACK TATTOO - 1/28/19

     In Which We Discuss:

    3. Michael Cohen is in the mob. Really.

    4. Puerto Rico is still a place that exists to everybody that isn’t Donald Trump.

    5. 2020 Updates: Don’t forget (or do) that Howard Schultz is a nobody.

    6. No matter who the president is, we’re always up to the same tricks in Latin America.

    5. We found our generation’s John Dean.

    6. The truth is the truth when it comes to Donald Trump, he just doesn’t know how to find it.

    2. Rev up your car elevator and head to your nearest stockbroker! More tax breaks are on the way.

    3. Don Jr. is definitely innocent of not having a meeting about adoptions with Russian officials. That much we know.

    4. Donald Trump doesn’t need an invite to your stupid GOP rally. Also he doesn’t know who you are or what district he’s currently standing in.

    5. Jeff Sessions is stopping injustice in its tracks, one secularist at a time

    6. The judge in the Manafort trial is hungry for justice...and Baked Alaska
