What a Weekday: Trump Attacks Obamacare, Santos Attacks Everyone
Lovett or Leave It shocks you out of your Thanksgiving break with a brand-new What a Weekday! Trump’s vows to replace Obamacare. George Santos headlines for Felons Galore. Elon Musk travels to Israel for some reason.
George Santos Reality Show Countdown
Lovett or Leave It wants to stuff you… with a delicious pre-Thanksgiving episode! Vice President Kamala Harris (Allison Reese) is ready to pardon a turkey, but the rest of us aren’t getting off so easy. Lizzy Cooperman and Victoria Vincent lay out a potluck of non-political news topics for your weird family members to nibble on, and the Gratitude Wheel invites you to slice off a piece of appreciation, whether it’s for time off, our wonderful coworkers, or, of course, Matt Dallas from Kyle XY, who seems to be thriving on his farm with his husband and kids.
What a Weekday: McCarthy throws hands and Scott drops out
It’s fisticuffs for the frisky sluts in Congress! This week, Markwayne brings the mark-pain while Ex-Speaker Kevin hits and runs. Tim Scott finds love and gives up on the White House. Donald Trump calls everyone reading this description “vermin,” and Lovett asks the most important question of all: where was Foghorn Leghorn on January 6?
Pot, Porn, and Planned Parenthood
And we're back in Los Angeles to get high off some big election wins. A newly single Brad Turbo (Matt Rogers) returns to solve male loneliness after his girlfriend leaves him for a certain South Carolina Senator. Casey Wilson gets baked (off), while River Butcher tries to distinguish Biden from BID3N. And it finally dips below 70 in LA, so we pour ourselves a steaming cup of Hot Takes.
What a Weekday: Trump's Testimony, Biden's Polling, and Mike Johnson's Accountability Partner
By his hand, it’s another What A Weekday! Mike Johnson’s new app brings plenty of Big Brother for the whole family. Donald Trump throws a temper tantrum in front of Papa Engoron. President Biden pulls in black sheep poll numbers, and Lovett dreams of his future husband, Pedro Pascal. We've got a seat at the table for you anytime, Pedro! Our lines are open.
Don Jr. Does a Line of Questioning (Live from Seattle!)
It’s a heaping helping of tossed salad, scrambled eggs, and civil fraud here in Seattle. We give her 24 hours, Rep. Pramila Jayapal gives us the world. Lovett doesn’t really get Seattle, so the audience uses Fraiser to help explain its appeal. Madeleine Smithberg talks Letterman, Stewart, Carson and French Onion Dip. And we do rapid fire rants, high notes, and a check in with the Batman to Seattle’s Gotham: The Green Jacket Lady.
Thank you, Moore Theatre!
You want us is to support your mission?
What is it other than saying Joe Biden is old? Helping old man Trump or icky Nikki?
Gone downhill since the top writer left. Now it’s just Lovett peppering in his racist anti-Palestine takes between sub par jokes.
Why don't you promote the lover show in AZ 🥺🌵🏜️
