Congressman Meehan said it doesn’t matter if the conversation was held in public or private.

“This sort of vile talk is appalling, it’s offensive, and there’s no place in public or private for it. It’s simply wrong.”

Meehan has represented Pennsylvania’s seventh district in the House of Representatives since 2011.

Looking ahead to November, Meehan said Donald Trump is not the best candidate right now to defeat Hillary Clinton.

    Just another RINO cuck who never supported Trump in the first place. Meanwhile they ignore all the corrupt Shrillary influence peddling in the just-released e-mails.
