RECAP: Jeff Flake's Smug, Condescending, Grinning,Water-Gulping Town Hall Disaster

Apr 14, 2017

Arizonans to Flake: “You work for us.”

At last night’s town hall, Sen. Jeff Flake finally had to hear from his his constituents… and it was clear why he had delayed talking to them for so long.

Arizonans held Jeff Flake accountable for his actions in Washington — wanting to repeal the Affordable Care Act, supporting the defunding of Planned Parenthood, his smug, condescending demeanor on stage, his refusal to hold Donald Trump accountable and his lockstep support for Trump’s dangerous agenda.

Facing the heat from his constituents, Flake refused to answer questions, repeatedly lectured his constituents on how Congress works, awkwardly gulped water and made an awkward joke about Marco Rubio — that fell embarrassingly flat with his audience.

Here’s a recap of what happened last night in Mesa, Arizona…

“The #ACA saved my life… I’d love to stay alive for my family.” 

“I’m a scientist…and the mother of a child with autism…Without Obamacare my daughter couldn’t speak.”

Crowd to Jeff Flake: “You work for us.” 

“You’re Doing A Lot Of Smiling”

“I’ve never had an abortion, I’ve never needed to, thank God, because I was able to get birth control from Planned Parenthood.”

“[Trump] wants me to pay for…seven trips to what he wants to call the Winter White House…It is a private club, a hotel…two restaurants, a spa, and a boutique. It is a business.

“I’m a nurse and a case manager” for a community health center. “I’ve had to refer [patients] to Planned Parenthood a number of times.”

 “Can you remind me when you are up for reelection?”
