Below are pictures we took February 21 at Toomey's current office, 17th and JFK. The crowd has not diminished from two weeks ago. The group  will meet again at this location on February 28.

The new office, at the U.S. Customs House, 200 Chestnut St, is harder for most working people to get to on their lunch break. For news of the demos and their location, see https://www.facebook.com/events/1121627961279526/, or search for TuesdayswithToomey.

Republican Senator Toomey also conducted a fake Town Hall meeting totally controlled by the organizers - a conference call announced 90 minutes before it began, according the news article above.

"This is the perfect time to raise our voices. We will show up at our elected officials' events, town halls, other public appearances, and even plan our own events, if they refuse to meet with us, to make it clear to those who represent us, as well as to the media, that tolerance of Trump's hurtful agenda is unacceptable and politically toxic. ..."

Meet the Press this week: what's happening in Washington

Experts have different views on whether Trump can recover from the chaos and put together a functioning government, perhaps by next year. Long transcript but worth it,

The video (dated Feb. 19th) will probably be available at http://www.nbc.com/meet-the-press, but it's not there as we publish this, since the show is  currently on the air.

NBC's Meet the Press is the longest-running TV show in U.S. history (and probably worldwide).
