Make America great again - again

Ronald Reagan's background as a Hollywood actor made him easily the most media savvy head of state of his day, and in THE REAGAN SHOW we are treated to a closer look at how his administration produced hours upon hours of TV content in order to influence the way the president was portrayed in the media. The result is a highly entertaining documentary about the Reagan presidency - his "charm-off" against Mikhail Gorbachev is especially fascinating - which also serves as a history lesson about the rhetoric and media strategies that have made Donald Trump the most powerful man in the world.
