The loyal opposition showed up at U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton’s town hall meeting in Pueblo Thursday and spontaneously lifted identical signs during the meeting, while posting their identical signs outdoors to demonstrate that these meeting protests are staged.
Rep. Scott Tipton is out at Pueblo West High tonight. No big signs in the town hall, so people are setting up outside the auditorium. pic.twitter.com/44X0sXFsT3

Not everyone in the audience were like-mind thinkers with the political pros, and showed their displeasure with the interruptions by the Democrat activists.

Taunted that he’d voted to repeal Obamacare more than 50 times, Tipton answered that he wasn’t supporting the Republican plan unless it included key pieces, such covering pre-existing conditions and adequate funding for Colorado residents getting Medicaid.
Supporters of President Donald Trump booed when a woman asked Tipton if he’d support an independent investigation into Russia’s efforts to tamper with the U.S. election and its influence with the current administration.
For the record, the Pueblo Chieftain reports that Tipton took questions for 45 minutes and stayed later after the meeting to continue the conversation with some of the attendees.
And, he shut them up when he agreed that Russia had tampered with the election. But he didn’t say which campaign suffered for it.
