Appearing before the press on the front lawn of the Capitol Building, House Republicans attempted to address the government shutdown debacle, but were soon attacked by hecklers yelling insults.
One heckler yelled, “You guys are worthless!” as others slammed what they perceived as the GOP’s inability to govern the country.
No longer able to ignore the hecklers, Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) tried to plead his group’s case.
“At 1 o’clock last night, we gave them everything they wanted,” Scalise said. “We gave them the chance to sit down and they turned us down.”
Regardless of the attempts to placate them, the hecklers were unsatisfied and continued to pepper the group with insults.
