‘You’re scared of brown women’: GOP congressman’s town hall spirals into chaos after he attacks Ilhan Omar

Published

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) got a lot more than he bargained for when he held a town hall meeting with constituents in San Antonio this week.

The Austin American Statesman reports that Roy on Wednesday hosted a town hall meeting at the Compassion Church in northern San Antonio this week in which he was confronted over his criticisms of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

While Roy was attacking Omar during the meeting, a woman named Eva Perez yelled at him to “let it go” and stop slamming his Democratic colleagues.

“I’m not going to let it go,” Roy replied.

“You’re scared of brown women,” Perez shot back. “Let it go.”

Perez also confronted Roy over his party’s total inaction on legislation to reduce gun violence.

““What are you doing to keep people from being shot in a Walmart?” she asked him.

After Roy discussed the need of police to track down and monitor “lone wolves,” Perez again interjected.

“They’re not lone wolves, they’re white supremacists,” she said. “They’re organized and they’re visible. They stand next to you at events.”

Local news station KVUE also reports that Roy at one point walked off the stage over his frustration at audience outbursts, but he eventually returned and said he wanted to “start over.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Saturday he was making a "huge amount of progress" towards a Brexit deal with the EU, in an interview in which he compared Britain to the Incredible Hulk.

"But I'm going to go to that summit and I'm going to get a deal, I'm very confident. And if we don't get a deal then we'll come out on October 31."

His comments came ahead of talks with European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker and the EU's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, in Luxembourg on Monday.
