Arkansas Senator Bombarded By Protesters At Town Hall


Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton has joined the list of GOP lawmakers who have experienced a wave of angry people at their town hall meetings.

Sen. Cotton held a town hall meeting Wednesday at the Springdale Performing Arts Center, where the crowd was estimated at well over 1,000 people, with the balcony filled with people, as well.

Disenchanted “constituents,” evenly spread throughout the audience, came prepared with signs, prepared speeches, and jeers, as they blasted Cotton with questions over a large range of issues, from Obamacare to Russians, the election process, and immigration.

One woman speaking to Cotton asked the audience to stand up if they had been affected by Obamacare, and hundreds of people stood up and cheered.

Another woman had her little girl stand up beside her and challenged Cotton as to whether he would tear their family apart and deport her husband just because he was an immigrant.

One woman who did try to offer support to Cotton, thanking him for his service, was met with a loud mixture of boos and cheers from the crowd.
