Rep. Chris Stewart’s Utah town hall meeting marked by anger over mass shootings, Trump

Quote:
The high emotions were on display when Stewart, a Republican, answered that first question in part by saying everyone should condemn violence and racism.

“Then why did you vote no to condemn racism?” shouted out Jamie Carter, of West Bountiful, saying she was referring to Stewart’s vote against a House-passed resolution condemning what it called Trump’s racist remarks against four women House members of color.
...

“The president of the United States, as far as I know, hasn’t shot anyone,” Stewart said. One man yelled in response that “Charles Manson never shot anyone either” as he led a mass-murdering gang.


Looks like the liberal hotbeds of Utah aren't unique when it comes to voter anger over Trump.

Apparently Mitch McConnell is feeling the backlash, too.

And now likely West Texas and Ohio, too. Trump's "sympathy visits" were not well received, mainly because he couldn't pull off sympathy. He's not sure what the word means, so he used both venues to attack his enemies. That only works at a Trump rally.

I so hope bytch McConnell aka #MoscowMitch loses his job in November 2020. It should serve that idiot right for Merrick Garland.

I hope the next President gets to replace a conservative Justice with Garland. Fitting justice...

I think that the GOP is wildly underestimating the anger they are generating in even RED States, and overestimating their ability to suppress the vote. Or... maybe not.

The Mooch breaks with Trump, suggests primary challenge.

Scaramucci breaks with Trump, says GOP may need 'change at the top of the ticket'

When the only truth teller on the Right is The Mooch, you know you're staring into the abyss. LOL

I think Mooch thinks he has spotted a career opening and is making a dash for it...
