Many Congressional members have returned to their home districts during a Congressional Recess. While there, they’re holding town halls; thus, at those town halls, their constituents are getting their first opportunities to speak up since Donnie took office.
This is how that’s going.

Notably, both Robert Gibbs in 2009 and Sean Spicer in 2017 have cited “manufactured” anger at town halls.

And this Michael Tracey dude always finds a way to pushback at the outrage machine.
These Democratic town halls in San Diego have been 99% white. That's not a criticism, but I know it'd be pointed out at a right-wing event. pic.twitter.com/owtqbFT3ID

Not a terrible point. And not wildly uncommon for constituents to be upset with their representation, especially in the rocky period following a transition of power, but interesting nonetheless.
