Only 1 in 5 Republicans held a town hall in April 

  • The fear and loathing sparked by Trump’s time in office has meant that those Republicans who decide to hold town hall meetings often face tough crowds; not infrequently, constituents angrily shout down the members of Congress for siding with Trump’s agenda. 
  • Republicans have taken a simple tack to avoid the awkward encounters: Despite the clamor for more meetings, the vast majority of GOP members simply didn’t hold town halls during the April recess.
  • Skimping out on town halls is not limited to Republicans, but the problem is more severe among GOP members. 
  • Overall, 40.5% of Democratic members of Congress have held a town hall in April, according to data shared with Mic by Town Hall Project, a group that tracks the public meetings. 
  • Meanwhile, Republicans are coming in well short of that average: just 21% of them have held open events with constituents in April. Read more (4/27/17 10:30 AM)

My real life hero would definitely be my mom. She raised my brother and I as a single parent while also teaching hundreds of other students as a day job, and she hasn’t lost her creativity or joy. On screen, I love watching Tatiana Maslany go full clone-mode in “Orphan Black.” She is seriously an inspiration and insanely underrated for what she can do.
