Across the country, liberals are swarming the town hall meetings of Republicans and making a scene. The media is loving it and shows these reports all the time. They rarely mention that the protests are highly organized or the fact that sometimes the protesters aren’t even from the Republican’s district or state.
Here’s another thing the media isn’t telling you. Many Democrats who are up for re-election aren’t even holding town hall meetings.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Democratic Senators Are Avoiding Town Halls
Democratic Senators have been avoiding town halls with their constituents, even though ten of them are up for re-election in 2018.
Only been a few have taken on town halls, the New York Post reported on Friday.
Hillary Shields, a member of Kansas City Indivisible, said that her Senator skipping out on an invitation for a town hall suggests that lawmakers are “afraid” of the people they represent.
“Seems to me that all these members of Congress are afraid of their constituents,” Shields said of Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.), who refused an invitation to attend a town hall.
McCaskill isn’t the only Democrat disregarding the town halls, according to the Post. Sen. Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.) has also avoided holding a town hall.
One of his constituents Cathy Kunkel told a wire service that she wants him to hold one because there are a lot of questions that need to be answered.
“Here we are, and we’d like a town hall meeting,” Kunkel said. “His constituents have a lot of questions. This is the first recess of the new Congress in the Trump administration.”
This is all happening while Democrats get a pass and the media doesn’t even see fit to mention it.
That’s fair, right?
