Podcast: Bernick and Schott on Politics – Episode #298

Bryan Schott and Bob Bernick discuss the week that was in Utah politics.

We have some advice for Gov. Gary Herbert in this week’s show – just stop talking about Donald Trump! We also try to figure out why Herbert has been so wishy-washy on the Trump issue.

Gary herbert also has a secret plan for stopping a Bears Ears National Monument, but there’s no way that will work because it’s almost certain President Obama will declare a monument there before he leaves office.

Democrat Michael Weinholtz is rightfully catching some heat for hosting a controversial fundraiser at a play that makes fun of the LDS Church. We explain why this issue is the reason Democrats can’t win big elections in Utah.

Plus we bid farewell to Sen. Steve Urquhart who retired this week.
