Reading time: 5 minutes
We all know about the hatred the GQP has for providing healthcare for its citizens. They’ve tried to stop the ACA, they don’t exapand Medicaid, they don’t fund public health, anything and everything.

I’m reviewing Katy Tur’s “Unbelievable” in three parts! It’s that good! Fantastic treatment of the campaign, covering a campaign, being a reporter, and being a human being caught up in the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s gaslighting narcissistic abuse meat grinder. Katy comes out on the other side stronger and better for it… and you will, too.
