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)

About the exordium last night in mexico city

I’m posting the transformer part again :)
So here’s what happened:
So they were singing and dancing transformer as always ❤️ and at this part where they all walked to the front and dance, the audio cracked and we all (including them) were so confused but Suho (baby i love you you are the best leader) continued dancing and singing so the rest of the boys followed him WITHOUT MUSIC and all the fans were singing/screaming the lyrics so they would follow along. It didn’t last much because at the end they all laughed and were so happy we were trying to make the best of a bad situation but I swear that moment is when you realize you are in the right fandom.
That moment was the moment you see how amazing the fandom and EXO are, the love we have, the support and the care. It was just a mistake from the staff
Or whoever is in charge of the music, but they made a very magical moment.
At the end Suho said that the passion from Mexican fans (and also the international fans that were there) was so great that we crashed the audio xD and then he said we were lucky because we were going to see transformer two times (yes we were)
And we all know it’s a tough dance specially for Jongin and yet he danced it two times and he was soooo tired but he gave HIS BEST and we were all united screaming “Kim Jongin” supporting and giving him our love.
Maybe it’s not the same for other people that were there but for me it was one of the best moments of the concert because you could see that even in the hard times exo and exo-ls are united and there for each other.
It was amazing, it was the best concert ever. I’m so proud of them and proud of all the fans that were there. I’m sure that all who were there are going to agree with me and say it was one of the best concerts (if not the best) of the whole century. It was magical, perfect, amazing, out of this world, nothing can describe it.

Anyways Kim Minseok pointed right at me during white noise and that alone was enough to get me through the rest of 2017😂😂😂 (Ok I guess in retrospect he could’ve been pointing at anyone one of the girls around me but that scream you heard was bc in that moment I wanted to believe he was pointing right at me LOL)
