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.

‘Go look at President Trump’s Twitter’: Portland right-wing rally organizer claims ‘mission success’
The organizer of a far-right rally in Portland, Oregon claimed the event was a "success" after President Donald Trump attacked Portlandiers protesting the group.
"A confluence of protesters on opposite ends of the ideological spectrum merged on Portland’s waterfront Saturday in a tense but relatively uneventful face-off that brought national attention, including a tweet in the hours before the protest by President Trump decrying the city’s signature anti-fascist movement," the Oregonian reported Saturday.
When a similar right-wing rally in Charlottesville, Virginia killed Heather Heyer, Trump argued there were "fine people" on both sides of the "Unite the Right" rally.
Why was Jeffrey Epstein buying size 5 women’s panties — while in jail?
The Miami Herald has another bombshell report on Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail while waiting to stand trial on federal sex crimes charges.
"A decade ago, during a brief stint in Palm Beach County Jail, convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein made an odd purchase at the facility’s store: two pairs of small women’s panties, size 5," the Herald reported Saturday night.
The newspaper noted, "the panties raise questions about why a childless male inmate, accused of sexually abusing girls as young as 14, would be allowed to buy female undergarments so small that they wouldn’t fit an average-sized adult woman."
