Party Politics, National Edition Ep. 12: The Episode About Everything Else

We take a look at what has been going on in the U.S. government while we were distracted by all the covfefe.

President Trump signing the Presidential memoranda regarding the Federal hiring freeze, the Mexico City Policy, and the TPP withdrawal on January 23, 2017.

On this episode of Party Politics, co-hosts Jay Aiyer and Brandon Rottinghaus take a step back to look at the current events that slipped through the cracks while we’ve been all wrapped up in Trumpgate:

  • The Dems go on tour (or something like that)! Their “Resistance Summer” fifty-state strategy
  • The PGA tournament comes back to a Trump-owned golf course
  • The Travel Ban: still frozen in place
  • The debt ceiling and debt limit: once a dividing point, now not so much?

Then the profs dig in to the massive changes the Trump administration has made to Obama-era regulations. 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
