GOP Rep scolds Trump for calling out ‘lib activists’ behind town hall protests, but there’s one glaring problem…

Looks like President Donald Trump was proved right again.

The president was challenged by a Republican congressman after he tweeted that “liberal activists” were responsible for protests in GOP town halls being held across U.S. cities.

Michigan Rep. Justin Amash took exception to Trump’s view, calling him out for criticizing “our fellow Americans with legitimate concerns.”

‘This president flat-out lied!’ Tucker joins ‘The Five’ and Bob Beckel goes off on him, see how it ends . .

Amash, an outspoken critic of the president, has faced crowded town halls in his own state with many anti-Trump constituents, according to The Hill.

But, a scan through Twitter reveals a picture that tells a different story than what Amash contends.

With upcoming town halls planned by GOP legislators, it seems the activists Trump called out are quite busy rallying their base to organized protests at these events.

Congress issued a memo last week to lawmakers urging caution as they returned to their home districts for the Presidents Day week recess, NBC 4 reported.

Members of Congress were instructed in the memo from the U.S. House sergeant-at-arms to alert local law enforcement officials if they planned to attend any meetings.

“Contact the proper law enforcement authority to coordinate any necessary police assistance at the event,” the memo told legislators, who normally enjoy protection by elite police forces and bomb squads in their Washington, D.C, offices.

“It is especially critical to note that if your home address and phone number are publicly available, you should remain particularly alert regarding your surroundings,” the memo added.

In light of  the congressional warning and calls to activists on social media, it seems President Trump’s point about the “so-called angry crowds” is not so hard to believe.
