HIGHLIGHTS: 1ST TOWN HALL FOR KANSAS CONGRESS LADY SHARICE DAVIDS!!!
She's the discount flyover country version of AOC and she kept things low-key today.
However, the MSM narrative suggests . . .
CONGRESS LADY SHARICE DAVIDS SILENCED HER TOUGHEST CRITICS IN TODAY'S POLITE TOWN HALL SHOWDOWN!!!
Mostly because the promises of MAGA pushback were unfulfilled and most people were polite on this cloudy Sunday . . .
Three takeaways . . .
- The "Green New Deal" isn't her deal and she kept her support to a minimum and waffled on the issue.
- She doesn't want Prez Trump's the wall and even got a few boos but the Sunday crowd seemed rather sleepy.
- There was a promise of "massive" resistance to her Town Hall from some constituents that didn't materialize, just a few angry old dudes that appear at every JoCo party.
Here's the better write-up for those wanting to take a deep dive into the Olathe gathering:
KBIA: Davids Talks Health Care, Guns And The Wall At First Town Hall Meeting In Olathe
It was an overwhelmingly friendly crowd who cheered as Davids talked about finding a way to provide health care for everyone (although Davids said she is not ready to sign onto a Medicare for all plan just yet) advocating for tougher background checks for gun buyers and refusing to provide money for a wall along the U.S. southern border.
There were scattered boos from a few supporters of President Trump when she voiced her oppostion to the wall.
Although even conservatives in the audience were pleased Davids was in the district holding a town hall. “Our representatives should definitely keep in contact with the people that they represent,” said Maurine McLellan from Stilwell who was wearing a Make America Great Again hat.
