Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) urged members of the public to “melt the phone lines” to defund President Obama’s executive order on immigration on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.
“Congress has a responsibility to uphold the laws of the land as well, and we can defund this president’s illegal amnesty. That’s what we must do. We can’t do it alone. So, it’s a very quick three-step plan that your viewers need to help us with. We can’t do it alone. We need your viewers. Congress will be back December 1st through December 11th. This will be decided in that period of time. We need to have your viewers melt the phone lines. Congress isn’t here, they’re gone from Washington tonight, but from December 1st to the 11th we need them to melt the phone lines and say ‘defund amnesty.’ We need them to go to Senators’ and Congressman’s office. But I’m calling on your viewers to come to DC on Wednesday, December 3rd at high noon on the west steps of the Capitol. We need to have a rally, and we need to go visit our Senators and visit our Congressmen because nothing frightens a congressman like the whites of his constituents’ eyes” she said.
Bachmann added, “when I was watching this speech tonight, Sean, I felt like I was watching Jonathan Gruber, to be honest with you, because all I heard was contempt for the American people as though he thought we were so stupid that somehow he could say that his illegal actions were legal and we would all turn over and roll over and believe it.”
