Audio: Congressman Kevin Cramer Says Town Hall Was Organized as a “Scheme” to Get a “YouTube Moment”

On Thursday Congressman Kevin Cramer answered a call from a left wing group demanding a town hall event in Fargo.

It got pretty ugly.

On Friday Cramer appeared on my radio show for our weekly open phones segment and we talked about the Thursday event.

“Part of their scheme is to get congressmen not to show up,” he said, “then they can use that as a talking point” or a “YouTube moment.”

“Part of their scheme is to get congressmen not to show up,” he said, “then they can use that as a talking point” or a “YouTube moment.” Cramer said he showed up and “exposed them for what they are.”

Cramer said he showed up and “exposed them for what they are.”

“I didn’t think they’d fall for it so easily,” he added.

He is referring to Indivisible, a group which according to its website formed to “resist the Trump agenda.” The Fargo/Moorhead chapter of that group organized the Thursday town hall.

“They were literally rude to one another,” Cramer said of many in the crowd which showed up to the event, though he added that he heard from “some really good people.”

He said that he was disappointed some in the crowd “shouted down a woman telling a very touching story about her child with pre-existing conditions.”

Here’s the full audio of the segment:
