Republicans have been facing town halls filled with outraged Democratic activists.
The media has turned these manufactured events into the narrative that Republicans are being confronted by a wave of anger sweeping over America in opposition to Donald Trump’s agenda.
And now Hillary Clinton has weighed in and many are wondering what it means.
Republican members of Congress have returned home to find large crowds of angry protestors.
These protestors claim to represent grassroots Americans outraged over the GOP’s plan to repeal Obamacare.
But is there more to the story?
In a tweet, Donald Trump declared the protestors were professionals who were planted by left-wing interest groups to create the appearance of civil unrest.
The so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous cases, planned out by liberal activists. Sad!

Congressman Jason Chaffetz of Utah agrees.
Chaffetz won his last election with over 70% of the vote, but found his town halls also packed with rowdy opponents.
He, too. stated the protestors were paid.
The Desert News reports:
“Rep. Jason Chaffetz said the raucous reception he received at Thursday evening’s town hall meeting was “bullying and an attempt at intimidation” from a crowd opposed to President Donald Trump’s election.
“You could see it online a couple days before, a concerted effort in part to just cause chaos,” the Utah Republican said Friday. “Democrats are in disbelief that they have nothing but flailing and screaming to deal with this…
…”Absolutely. I know there were,” he said, suggesting it was “more of a paid attempt to bully and intimidate” than a reflection of the feelings of his 3rd District constituents.”
And this led to Hillary Clinton weighing in.
She tweeted that Republicans were cowards afraid to face raucous crowds.
If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the…Congress.https://t.co/TEAXDPEPrt

But Clinton has been selective about which political controversies she weighs in on.
And her latest tweet looks like just another part of the coordinated effort on the left to create chaos and intimidate Republicans from enacting the conservative agenda that won them the election.
