STUDIO CITY—During a town hall meeting on Sunday, December 15 at the Glendale Public Library, Adam Schif f was booed off the stage where he was scheduled to speak.
The meeting was held to acknowledge the 1.5 million people exterminated between 1915-1923 and to thank government officials responsible for passing a bill regarding the Armenian Genocide. The bill was passed on December 12.
YouTube footage shows Schiff being interrupted after he began speaking about his efforts to pass the bill. There were approximately a dozen people, some holding signs that read, “Don’t Impeach.” They can be heard in the video shouting “Liar! You will be going to jail for treason” and yelling other obscenities.
At one point, a man is heard yelling, “Don’t touch my wife,” as protesters attempted to wrap her in a Trump 2020 flag.
Adam Schiff represents the 28th District. There are 53 State Representatives in California. Each one represents 710,000 people.
