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.

President Donald Trump Will Move the 2020 Republican Convention Out of North Carolina

The state had interfered in the convention.

President Donald Trump confirmed that he will move the 2020 Republican Convention away from Charlotte, North Carolina in a series of tweets Tuesday night. The state’s Democratic governor, Roy Cooper, had refused to allow the Republican Party to conduct the event at full capacity, citing supposedly necessary coronavirus social distancing restrictions.

The event was slated to be held in late August, well after the apex of the national coronavirus epidemic. Cooper still refused to allow the Republican Party to proceed with its plans to hold a full-sized major party political convention.

The loss of the Republican convention is set to cost North Carolina millions of dollars in revenue for the state’s economy. Major party conventions are regularly sought by governors and mayors, but it appears that Cooper’s desire to restrict the GOP convention overrode his desire for the benefits of the event.

The President had earlier been threatening to move the convention if North Carolina failed to give the Republican Party the green light to proceed in organizing for its convention as planned.

Sources indicate that GOP officials are already scouting out potential alternative locations for the party’s convention. Early reports suggest that either Arizona or Florida could be selected as possible replacement locations for the event, with both states set to be competitive electoral battlegrounds in the fall presidential election.

Arizona Republican Debbie Lesko called for the RNC to move the convention to her Glendale-area district, and Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has suggested that the state would be willing to welcome the President and Republicans across the country for the crucial political event.
