Watch: Rural voters hammer Iowa senator who refuses to say if Trump is fit to serve
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) was headed into a a friendly environment in the rural Iowa city of Logan for a town hall, but what he got was anything but friendly.
“Are you not personally concerned about his fitness to serve? If not, why not? Because I’m very concerned,” 67-year-old Mary Mikels asked Grassley, The Des Moines Register reported.
The senior senator tried to deflect and say that he isn’t qualified to diagnose anyone.
“He gets on Twitter and says the last thing that Fox News told him to say,” Mikels continued. “That’s not presidential. It’s concerning. Are you personally concerned?”
Grassley said that he has his own job to worry about.
“I have a job to do,” Grassley told her. “I’m not president of the United States. I’m a check on the president of the United States. That’s my constitutional responsibility. I’m going to do what I can under our Constitution to make sure that nothing bad happens to our country.”
The rural town hall was the first in his tour of all 99 counties. Approximately 50 people attended from a population of about 1,500 people. The area has Democratic voters vastly outnumbered by Republicans two-to-one and Trump carried the county by 65 percent.
