McCain: I'm 'Proud' Of Debate At Town Hall Meetings

Heaven forbid we're ever going to see John McCain admit that there might just be a problem with the nativist base of his party -- that they've been whipping hatred in for years now over the immigration issue -- that McCain found himself confronted with at his recent series of town hall meetings.

Heaven forbid we're ever going to see John McCain admit that there might just be a problem with the nativist base of his party -- that they've been whipping hatred in for years now over the immigration issue -- that McCain found himself confronted with at his recent series of town hall meetings.

McCain ‘Proud’ Of Debate At Town Hall Meeting:

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Sunday defended a confrontation with an angry voter at a town hall meeting over immigration reform, saying, "that's what town halls are supposed to be about -- that's why they're always packed."

"We don't screen anyone who comes to our town hall meetings," McCain said on CNN's "State of the Union." "Now I didn't believe that person was correct with his facts so I fired back at him. And people said, 'Good, that's what we want to hear, this is a debate we want to hear.' So I'm proud of that, and if anybody doesn't like it, then you don't have to come to the town hall meeting."

The tensions in McCain's town hall meeting provoked speculation about whether opposition from the conservative base of the GOP would make it impossible for lawmakers to reach a deal on immigration reform. McCain denied Sunday that this was the case.

She didn't ask him if he was also proud of calling one of his constituents a jerk or not.

Sadly no amount of bad behavior with holding up cabinet appointments out of spite or their fake Benghazi outrage is going to keep Senator Hothead from being given another appearance on the Sunday shows.
