WATCH: Dem Debbie Dingell says “I’ve been in the Donald Trump hate tunnel…I, too, have been threatened with being hung for treason”

Appearing on MSNBC, Michigan Democrat Rep. Debbie Dingell says she has faced violent rhetoric from political enemies.

“I’ve been in the Donald Trump hate tunnel,” Dingell said “I’ve had men in front of my house with assault weapons. I, too, have been threatened with being hung for treason.”

“you keep going” in order to deal with the hate, Dingell said.

“We have to do what’s right for the American people,” Dingell continued  “Public service is a good thing. There are a lot of people that are counting on us.”

“People use to talk to each other. They used to learn from each other. That’s what hearings were for. They weren’t theatrical shows. They were to get information to base sound policy decisions on,” she added.
