Wall paintings like this, recreations of a picture Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il took at the crater lake of Baekdusan, sacred to Koreans, can be found all over the country.

On this episode of Party Politics, co-hosts Jay Aiyer (aka, Fury) and Brandon Rottinghaus (aka, Fire) talk about these tumultuous topics in the week’s political news:

  • President Trump goes on a 17-day vacation
  • The Sage Grouse, at the center of controversy again! Climate change memo leak
  • “Fire and Fury”: What’s going on with the North Korea situation?
  • Uh oh. Grand jury empaneled regarding Russia.

Then the profs dig into tax reform and the Battle for the Middle Class. What would tax reform look like? Is there any real chance for success? By the way, don’t forget to listen to our weekly Texas-centered episodes, too!

Party Politics is produced by Dacia ClayEdel Howlin and Laura Lucas. Our audio engineer is Todd Hulslander.
