Arizona Representative Martha McSally faced a tough crowd at a town hall event on Thursday. According to The Hill, roughly 250 people attended the event.
The crowd was heard chanting, “Do your job!” and members criticized McSally for what they felt were vague responses.
Similar crowds have appeared at other GOP town hall meetings nationwide, recently. According to The Hill, lawmakers are facing more challenges from the public on topics like Obamacare and President Trump’s agenda.
The Arizona Republic reports one person accused the representative of ignoring questions during the event in Sahuarita, Ariz.
“We have to have a smart immigration policy,” McSally said, which did not receive a great response from the crowd.
Even a nine-year-old boy chimed in and said new Education Secretary Betsy DeVos was elected “because she wants guns at schools,” which drew cheers from the crowd. The boy asked McSally why DeVos was qualified for the position.
The Hill reports McSally later stated, “I am not in the Senate, thank God,” referencing the upper chamber’s decision on DeVos that depended on Vice President Mike Pence’s final vote.
In response to the influx of angry crowds, on Tuesday President Trump tweeted, “The so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous cases, planned out by liberal activists. Sad!”
