    Ernst faces confrontational crowds at 2 town halls in Iowa

    DES MOINES (AP) — Republican Sen. Joni Ernst met with confrontational crowds in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids Friday where she was repeatedly shouted down and booed over the GOP health care reform plan, an issue which dominated both meetings.
    Protest signs dotted the Des Moines audience, including those which said “Poverty is not a choice,” “Health Care For All” and “Investigate Trump.”
    She drew applause at both meetings when she said President Donald Trump should release his tax returns.

    However, for much of the hourlong meetings in a packed 1,100-seat auditorium at Coe College in Cedar Rapids and a nearly full 780-seat room at Drake University in Des Moines, she endured shouting and booing.

    1. It's almost like the people she was elected to serve dislike being fucked.

    Who’d have thunk it?

    2. Why aren't there flash mobs at these town halls singing

    Do You Hear the People Sing?

    Scare the shit out of them.

    4. As despicable as she is, I have to give her credit for showing up

        Don't blame me. I voted for Bernie and Jill.

      5. I agree.

      Donnelly is showing up soon at Ball State University.  Small venue with screened questions are the plans. I think he and his staff are dreaming.

    6. Do you suppose

    Steve King has mentored Miss Joni at all?  But I’m thrilled at this news for 2 reasons:

    (1) Her ignorance and awfulness are on full public display despite her gorgeous smile.

    (2) Iowans seem VERY informed.

    7. The question is, did she castrate any hogs?

    Aloha! KamaAina in the hale (house).

      8. Oh no, Green Dog Dem

      This question reminds me of that Thanksgiving turkey bloodbath behind Sarah Palin back in the day.  HAHAHAHA

      9. Of course she did. And she was wearing her Wonder Bread snowshoes to keep her
