JASON CHAFFETZ: ATTENDEES AT MY TOWNHALL MEETING INTENDED TO “BULLY AND INTIMIDATE” ME

Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who recently faced a heated group of constituents at a town hall in his home state of Utah, said Tuesday that attendees intended to “bully and intimidate” him.

“They’re welcome to come yell and scream,” Chaffetz said on the Kilmeade and Friends radio program. “I thought it was intended to bully and intimidate. But, the last four elections in Utah in a row I’ve won the widest margin of anybody playing at this level.”

An estimated 1,000 people attended the congressman’s town hall in suburban Salt Lake City. Republicans this month have faced hostile town hall crowds made up of constituents upset with President Donald Trump’s administration. When asked if the town hall attendees were from his district, Chaffetz said he believed most were from his state.
