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.
Hard to believe that @FoxNews is wasting airtime on Mayor Pete, as Chris Wallace likes to call him. Fox is moving more and more to the losing (wrong) side in covering the Dems. They got dumped from the Democrats boring debates, and they just want in. They forgot the people…..

….who got them there. Chris Wallace said, “I actually think, whether you like his opinions or not, that Mayor Pete has a lot of substance…fascinating biography.” Gee, he never speaks well of me – I like Mike Wallace better…and Alfred E. Newman will never be President!

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.
DECISIVE VICTORY: Arizona Judge Rules State Senate Can Review 2.1 Million Ballots & Voting Software in Maricopa County
Friday morning, a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge gave the Trump Campaign and overall MAGA movement another small yet decisive victory in their ongoing legal battle in the 2020 Presidential Election. According to an article by the Associated Press, Judge Timothy Thomason ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million voter ballots and voting machines from Maricopa County, Arizona’s most popular county which flipped Arizona from Trump to Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported on Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors and their state of perpetual non-compliance with legally issued subpoenas by the Arizona Senate. It appears that today, Judge Thomason has officially ordered that non-compliance to end, and Maricopa County must allow the Senate to proceed with their investigation.
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has previously argued that ballots should remain secret and not open to investigation. They see the subpoenas issued by the Senate as illegitimate and that they have no right to access the county’s voting hardware. In turn, the Senate and their legal team have argued that the constitution clearly gives the Legislature the responsibility to enforce the law and to maintain election integrity. It is the Senate’s role to ensure that Arizona elections are free, fair, and pure.
Judge Thomason seemingly agrees with the Senate on all fronts and has called the subpoenas “legal and enforceable”. In his ruling, the Judge also stated:
“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The Subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections. The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters. Accordingly, the Senators have the power to subpoena material as part of an inquiry into election reform measures. As such, the Subpoenas have a proper legislative purpose. The Subpoenas also do not violate separation of powers principles. Production of the subpoenaed materials would not violate confidentiality laws.”
The rest of Judge’s Thomason’s ruling can be found here.
“We are thrilled and grateful that the judge was able to see the big picture in this whole issue,” said Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann. “That this has never been about overturning an election. This has always been 100% about voter integrity and finding the answers to all of our voters’ questions about the safety and security and validity of the Arizona electoral system.”
Maricopa County has been accused of committing mass voter fraud, discriminating against Trump voters and using hardware to manipulate votes for Joe Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported that former Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora had resigned from his office in disgust with the complacency Maricopa County played in the election fraud. Flora said that he plans to continue to push recall efforts against the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for what he sees as crimes against the people of Maricopa County.
BREAKING: A judge ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million ballots from Arizona’s most populous county so it can audit results of the 2020 election.
