    Nancy Pelosi might be trotting the globe, but Lovett or Leave It is home sweet home at Dynasty Typewriter. There’s no such thing flying as flying too close to the sun when Luenell buys a ticket to the celebrity private jet scandal. President Biden’s personal physician (Vinny Thomas) diagnoses us with a bad case of hustle culture. Crooked’s own Dr. Imani Walker offers her words of wisdom to our audience, and our guests pass the Rant Wheel with flying colors.

    Lovett or Leave It is back at Dynasty Typewriter this week, as we toast beloved statesman Joe Manchin with a glass of TikTok’s pink sauce. With just 100 days left until the midterms, Sam Sanders stops by to help Lovett figure out what that actually means. GOP congresswoman Jamie Rochester (Lindsay Adams) takes a break from celebrating her gay son’s wedding to explain why she voted against the Respect for Marriage Act, Marcy Jarreau tests her knowledge of 2022’s most concussed Senate candidate, and we close out the night with a scorching dip in the Hot Take hot tub.

    It’s bottoms up when Lovett or Leave It rolls into town for a show at the beautiful Chicago Theater. The Chicago Gay Men's Chorus reminds us we were born this way: tired and gay. Ali Barthwell does the Cell Block Tango with Trump’s murderers’ row of henchmen. Abby McEnany serves up the Gay News deep dish. A former Jane (Kim Quindlen) gives us hope in a post-Roe world. Ashley Ray and Lovett raise a shot glass to the Second City, and our Hot Takes are the only thing steamier than this humid Windy City summer.
