AMY WALTER: DID FIRE AND FURY SPLIT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY?
“Has it split the Republican party?” asks Amy Walter, while discussing Michael Wolff’s new book, Fire and Fury, with the PBS News Hour team. Last week, Walter appeared on the program to talk about the controversial book and offer her opinion on the chances of Oprah 2020.
