Phil Reinheimer: Meltdown unhealty

I am not a Republican, but I very much value a multiparty democratic system in which all opinions, positions and views can beard and debated. It is troubling and unfortunate that the former president is now trashing those who were closest to him during his term, like McConnell, Giuliani …. Is McCarthy next?
