Rep. Bob Inglis (R-SC) faced a “rowdy” crowd at a town hall forum on health care yesterday. Inglis said that he was against the health care policies being advocated by the Obama administration and “won applause for advocating medical liability reform.” However, the crowd revolted when Inglis told people to “turn the TV off” and stop listening to Glenn Beck. Watch it:

Inglis’ comments about Beck are inaudible in the clip, but ThinkProgress spoke to an Inglis spokesperson who confirmed that he had made those remarks.

Update

Ben Smith points to another video that “clearly has Inglis saying Beck’s name in repeating a suggestion that he watch the Fox talk show host. This clip also picks up the congressman accusing Beck of ‘trading on fear.’”
