Join the Dames for their last episode of 2018! They are fully invested in the holiday season and ready to spread some holiday cheer.
Our Dames begin by discussing Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump. They speculate about whether a sitting president will go after a pornstar for money awarded to him in court. Kelly and Tracy mutually agree that at this point Donald Trump is practically bulletproof. Aaaannnnd…this is where all agreement in this episode ceases.
Harvey Weinstein’s newest move in the courts to get a sexual assault case dismissed kicks off the Dames’ disagreement. Tracy poses the question that if people f*@# up do we allow them to change and come back to function in society? Kelly is quick to suggest that their place in society should be limited to a host position at TGIF.
Things continue to get heated when they talk about the classic (misogynist?) holiday song, “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” What is the true meaning behind the song; is it about a girl just wanting to get laid or a man trying the rape her? For Tracy the answer is black and white, while for Kelly it is a very, very gray world we live in.
Tracy’s New Year’s Resolution is to care less and Kelly wants to hustle harder and love harder. The Dames take next week off. See you next year!
It’s so cold in DC that Tracy almost wore a fur coat and there are toy polar bears climbing up a fake library wall in the studio building. Christmas has officially arrived in Washington.
Today the Dames are talking Bipartisan friendship. Is it something that can exist in this day and age, with the state of our politics? How can you make it work? Is it as simple as not being a douchebag?
Kelly springs a quiz on Tracy: Are they 33%, 66% or 99% close as best friends? The quiz also reveals a topic Tracy loves to talks about in explicit detail.
In The Button!, the Dames address answers to the question “Why do you need two laptops?” Seemingly a simple question—until they reveal the asshattery behind it.
Tracy, never hesitating to make the conversation more interesting, reveals what she always makes her husband pack in his carry-on. We bet you’ll never guess.
Tracy on the road and, sadly, doesn’t get to drink wine with Kelly and Richard. Apparently, coconut milk coffee isn’t the same.
The national conversation about Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation has changed from why it’s important to believe women who experience sexual assault to why it’s important to protect men from false accusers. Seriously, what the fuck?
Tracy points out that just 28% of rape and sexual assault are committed by strangers, so maybe women should stop being so afraid of walking to their cars at night and start being willing to spray mace in the faces of the men they know.
If men are afraid to say sexual things to women, to touch women, or to behave in any way that may result in them being accused of bad behavior…that’s a GOOD THING!
It’s all so fucking heavy, so let’s start “drinking with the wine”! Maybe not the best wine this time…but one of the best episodes EVER.
The Dames get right into it and agree that Brett Kavanaugh was a complete douchebag when he got drunk as a teenager, and spend some time considering how rape culture starts really early in people’s lives. Tracy points out that no one asks why men rape, just why women did whatever they did., and wonders whether good men realize how many of their female friends have been assaulted.
Then she reacts…atypically…to Trump’s tweet. And Kelly loves her for it.
Hang on for a wild ride, Damers!
