Paul Ryan: No more public town hall meetings

To avoid situations involving protesters coming in from other districts, House Speaker Paul Ryan says he will no longer hold public town halls.

The announcement came after CBS News asked when the next open town hall would take place.

"I don't want to have a situation where we just have a screaming fest, a shouting fest, where people are being bused in from out of the district to get on TV because they're yelling at somebody," he said.

Instead, Ryan said he would use "new and creative" methods of having a civil dialogue with constituents.

He suggested planned tours, telephone town halls, office hours and employee town halls as alternatives.

Republican rallies have been filled with protesters since President Trump took office, with footage from many going viral online.
