President Donald Trump lashed out at the media for continually naming his administration “chaotic;” Trump instead says it is running like a “fine-tuned machine.” For the Republican-controlled Congress, it might be a different story. Across the country, Republican congressional members are being met with angry and sometimes unruly crowds at their community town halls as constituents express their frustration with the Republican administration and efforts to do away with Obamacare. Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) recently held a town hall in his district near Sacramento. He received a police escort out of the meeting. He joins Soledad O’Brien to discuss the need for Congressional investigations, national security, the administration’s controversies and the advice he gave the president about public criticism.

 

See his thoughts on GOP efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare.
