Dean Phillips’s first town hall went off the rails in New Hampshire when he was accused of gaslighting a longtime constituent. Phillips had been trying to explain his views on climate change and the need to transition away from fossil fuels but was repeatedly interrupted by the constituent, who accused him of “hiding” the truth. Phillips attempted to explain his views on the issue several times, but the constituent wasn’t buying it and called him out for “gaslighting” her. Phillips eventually asked the questioner to give him a chance to answer his previous question, but the exchange had already garnered some backlash from the audience. The interruption was seen by some as a disruptive disruption to the conversation.
