Reagan cut his teeth fighting a communist backed union. They tried to paralyze Hollywoood, with the goal of dominating motion pictures. Baseball bats through windshields, death threats (sound familier, grocers?).
In the face of threats of acid being thrown in his face, he single-handedly (according to the communists) broke the strike.
His wife at the time (Nancy Davis) was liberal, and didn't like it. It led to his divorce.
Notice the mini series left this out.
Ronald Regan single-handedly broke the communist infiltration of the most powerful union in hollywood.
He slept with a .38.

His wife at that time was not Nancy Davis, it was Jane Wyman. Nancy Davis is Nancy Reagan.
