‘Shut Your Mouth!’: Rep. Pete Sessions Gets Hammered By Angry Crowd At Dallas Town Hall
If you thought those loud town hall protests against Obamacare repeal were over, well, you were wrong. House Rules Committee chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX) got an earful from a crowd of boisterous, angry North Texans at a town hall in Richardson Saturday afternoon.
The audience challenged Sessions to stop the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and asked him to seriously investigate Russia’s tampering in the 2016 presidential race and to squash President Donald Trump’s controversial budget proposal.
The Texas Republican got testy when audience members booed him as he tried to explain the GOP plan with a PowerPoint presentation.
“I understand why you’re so frustrated,” Sessions said as the crowd jeered and booed his opening remarks on health care. “You don’t know how to listen.”
“Shut your mouth,” an audience member yelled.
“We don’t have to listen to your lies,” one woman loudly replied.
Some critics were unrelenting.
“It’s your job,” they chanted after Sessions wanted credit for hosting the town hall event.
“Do your job!” and “Vote him out!” the crowd chanted
