Former Minnesota Congressman and broadcast veteran Jason Lewis's vivid account of the radical left, the media and politics in the public arena during the Trump presidency. It's a blistering critique of blind partisanship, party infighting, raging activism and an ethically bankrupt press corps by someone who went to Washington alongside the 45th President. After a term in the House, Lewis then became Minnesota's Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate in the midst of historic chaos and rioting in his home state. This is the former talk radio host unplugged, setting the record straight on the actual policies that Made America Great Again--and how a new revolutionary 'squad' of extremists is trying to undo them. If you want to know what it was really like being member of Congress while a politicized 'swamp' desperately tried to bring down the Trump presidency, then read this fascinating tale of what one session of Congress was able to achieve in an era marked by polarizing dysfunction. Lewis describes in detail the ups and downs, the ins and outs, the good, the bad and the really ugly of life in Washington during one of the most tumultuous times in modern history.
