GOP Representative Justin Amash recently made headlines (before, no one knew his name) for calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
But, he seems to have forgotten who his REAL Boss is… his constituents.
While the liberal media was loving it, apparently, his constituents aren’t pleased with his little political stunt.
One black voter blasted him, arguing that President Trump is good for the economy, while another former supporter and actual campaign worker was furious over the fact that he has ‘failed’ to do his job.
Of course, Amash responded in typical democrat fashion, belittling and arguing with the comments with smug superiority. The sort of elitism and arrogance displayed by this man is vomit-worthy.
While taking questions at a town hall event Tuesday in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) was confronted by a black voter who criticized his “demonizing” calls to impeach President Trump.
“From what I’m seeing, for the black community and minorities, is that Trump is good for America,” the voter stated. “And I’m wondering why the Republicans and Democrats are fighting him so much when he’s doing such a good job?”
“You’re demonizing him on something that you know is not true,” he added. “It’s just bewildering to me that you can treat the president of the United States in this way, especially when he’s doing such a good job for minorities and black people.”
In the video, captured by 13 On Your Side ABC, Amash responded to the unidentified man and said that he believes there are a lot of people that “disagree” with his point and claimed “nobody’s demonizing” President Trump.
“The person who demonizes people every day is Donald Trump,” Amash claimed. “He goes on Twitter and calls people names and says the most egregious things about people.”
Amash added, “Somehow if anyone challenges any policy position he has, or says there’s something in the Mueller report we should look at, that is somehow attacking him or demonizing him and that’s totally ridiculous of course.”
“He’s the one demonizing people. He is the one attacking people day after day,” Amash said. “It’s not healthy for our country for our people to have hatred towards each other.”
Wrong. He defends himself from the attacks that come at him every moment.
A woman voter who attended a town hall event Tuesday for Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) in Grand Rapids, Michigan, accused him of “political grandstanding” in his calls to impeach President Trump and claimed he only wants to benefit from it to raise his “national profile.”
“I think a lot of the people here who are cheering and applauding your courage most likely didn’t vote for you,” the woman told Amash, who represents Michigan’s 3rd congressional district, which includes Grand Rapids.
“I, on the other hand, voted for you in every election since 2010,” she continued. “And in fact, I worked on your first campaign in 2010. I knocked on hundreds of doors for you. I made hundreds of poll calls for you, inviting people to your events to meet you. I made tons of personal phone calls to friends to vote you in when you were running against a bunch of other people.”
“So I was there for you from the very beginning. I’m not sure how many people applauding your courage were. But I would like to say that since that time I have changed my position on you,” she said.
“You have spent the last two years failing to do your job, which is to directly represent the popular will of your constituents,” she told Amash.
Amash challenged her on that point, saying his job is to “uphold the constitution.”
“Those are not mutually exclusive, do you realize that?” she replied.
The woman then rebutted Amash’s argument for impeachment, calling his claims that Trump obstructed justice “baseless.”
“You further know that impeachment would tear this country apart if it went through and he was removed from office,” she said. “It would cause a political upheaval in this country [that] people in this generation have never seen before, a possible civil war.”
“You rest safe in the knowledge that that will not happen — that he won’t be removed from office,” she continued. “So you get to make the political grandstanding that raises your national profile. You are now a national household name. That’s called political capital. And you are hoping to launch your star bigger and brighter than District 3.”
She continued, “You just talked about how you did better in District 3 than Trump. Do you want to talk about how the last election you got the least amount of support that you’ve ever had because you haven’t supported the MAGA agenda?”
“It’s your right to support whatever you want, but you also know you have no future in this district because of that, as a Republican. So you want to go bigger and brighter,” the woman added.
She went on to question Amash about the “FISA abuses.”
“If you care about the constitution so much, why didn’t you say anything about the year-long violation of the Fourth Amendment rights of Trump and his entire transition team?” she asked Amash.
“Every phone call, every email, every personal conversation for a year was spied upon and recorded,” she said.
Amash responded and said his tweets regarding his claims of obstruction of justice and Attorney General Barr misrepresenting Mueller’s report were “not really refutable.”
“Mueller himself issued a letter to Barr saying you are misleading the people,” Amash added,
Amash also called the woman’s claims on FISA abuse an “excuse.”
“The FISA only relates to one part of the investigation,” Amash said. “The rest of that investigation does not relate to that FISA.”
Amash also claimed “no one has fought harder against FISA abuse” than himself.
