President Donald Trump’s decision to hold a town hall meeting in Philadelphia was questioned on Tuesday.

ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos hosted the town hall, featuring questions from area voters in the swing state of Pennsylvania. The forum was titled, “The President and the People.”

It was an unfamiliar format for Trump, who is rarely questioned by voters, preferred the adulation for his fan club at his MAGA rallies.

Outside of his Fox News bubble, Trump was repeatedly taken to task for the crises facing America. Trump responded defensively, spouting off lie after lie.

“We’re 8 minutes into this town hall and Trump has already lied to the audience repeatedly about Covid, about masks, about his praise for China, about the travel ban, about Fauci, about Biden, and more. It’s an avalanche of lies. Period,” CNN’s Marshall Cohen tweeted. “So much of this is recycled lies.”

Many commenters thought the event was a mistake. Here’s some of what people were saying:

"Trump is to headline a campaign rally for Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler in the state Saturday night — his first major political event since before the Nov. 3 election.

President Donald Trump's mental health since losing the 2020 presidential election was the focus of a new analysis by New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker that was published online Saturday.

"Over the past week, President Trump posted or reposted more than 130 messages on Twitter lashing out at the results of an election he lost.
