President Trump Calls Foul After Fox News’ Town Hall Promotes Pete Buttigieg

Chris Wallace sat meekly as the Democratic presidential candidate slammed Trump, Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham.

Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg did a recent town hall on Fox News where it was anticipated that he would face tough questioning from the network with a large conservative audience, but that did not happen. Buttigieg was given an open forum to bash President Donald Trump and pro-Trump voices on the network.

“There is a reason why anybody has to swallow hard and think twice before participating in this media ecosystem,” Buttigieg said, referring to Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham while journalist Chris Wallace just sat there.

Wallace affectionately referred to Buttigieg as “Mayor Pete” as he talked to him about his upbringing, his experience leading the town of South Bend, IN, the “inclusive” nature of his policy proposals, drugs, government spending, and life.

Buttigieg had previously bashed the network before his carefully staged debate performance as well.

“There’s been a lot of debate recently about whether Democratic presidential candidates should go on Fox News,” Buttigieg said in a campaign email.

“Let me be clear: I strongly condemn the voices on Fox and in the media that uncritically amplify hate and the divisive sort of politics that gave rise to this presidency,” he added.

Buttigieg was lobbed softball questions by event attendees, and Wallace refused to challenge him on much of anything. The appearance looked more like paid programming broadcast on the campaign’s behalf, and President Trump has taken notice.

He even addressed the strange shift that is going on at Fox News during a campaign rally in Montoursville, PA on Monday night.

“What’s going on with FOX? What’s going on there? They’re putting more Democrats on than you have Republicans. Something strange is going on at FOX! Something very strange,” Trump said.

“Did you see this guy last night? I did want to watch, you’ve always got to watch the competition if you call it that. And he was knocking the hell out of FOX and FOX is putting him on. Somebody is going to have to have to explain the whole FOX deal to me,” Trump added, referring to Buttigieg.

Fox News recently hired Donna Brazile, the former DNC chair who attempted to rig the presidential debates against Trump on Hillary Clinton’s behalf in 2016 while working at CNN. Fox News can no longer be relied upon to provide fair coverage to the President heading into his re-election campaign next year.
