Most politicians go on listening tours to hear their constituents’ concerns and get input for voting on legislation or writing new laws.
But we’ve noticed that in U.S. Sen. John Hickenlooper’s limited interactions with the public — restricted mostly to the Front Range — he’s the one doing all the talking.

Stopped by Jabanero’s Mexican Grill in Aurora today to hear how the owner Raul was able to use their Restaurant Revitalization and Paycheck Protection dollars to keep their doors open through the pandemic. pic.twitter.com/RgjkcfDx07

Yesterday @RepJoeNeguse, @SBAIsabel, and I visited Scrumpy’s in Fort Collins, home of Summit Hard Cider. So glad to hear they were able to bring back all of their pre-COVID employees thanks to the Restaurant Revitalization Fund! pic.twitter.com/UiXxLCRYYR

If he ever stops mansplaining long enough, maybe Hickenlooper’s staff can get in a word edgewise and remind him there is as much wisdom in listening as there is in speaking.
This explains why he’s always so out-of-touch with Coloradans.
