The Democratic presidential primary field is the largest in history.
And the candidates are fighting tooth and nail to get media coverage.
But one Trump challenger instantly regretted going on Fox News for one reason.
President Trump is watching the largest Democratic primary field in history tear itself to shreds.
And all he has to do is sit back and watch.
But while Democrats are busy attacking one another, many are trying as hard as they can to get their name out there.
And one such Democrat is Pete Buttigieg.
The Mayor of South Bend, Indiana rocketed onto the top of the Democratic primary polling earlier this year before collapsing just as quickly as he rose.
As soon as Biden jumped into the race, Buttigieg’s standing fell like a rock, and he’s been on the decline ever since.
Eager to get back to the massive bump he saw earlier, Buttigieg is trying every play in the book to get more name ID and media recognition.
And so that’s how “Mayor Pete” ended up on Fox News’s town hall this past week.
But Buttigieg may have regretted his decision to go on Fox.
And it’s all because of President Donald Trump.
The Daily Caller reports, “President Donald Trump attacked Fox News in a tweet Sunday evening for hosting a town hall with Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg. The tweet came less than two hours before the event was scheduled to begin.”
“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…..,” Trump tweeted.
Trump wasn’t finished yet though.
He continued on slamming Buttigieg’s performance.
“….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!” Trump concluded.
Trump not only slammed Buttigieg though, but also Fox itself, pointing out that the network is trying to get Democrats to show up on their shows despite the fact that the Democratic National Committee has decided not to conduct any debates through Fox.
“As Trump noted in his first tweet, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) decided back in March to forbid Fox News from hosting any of the Democratic presidential debates. DNC Chairman Tom Perez stated that Fox is ‘not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate,’ following a report alleging journalistic malfeasance from the New Yorker,” adds the Daily Caller.
The Daily Caller concludes their story by pointing out that, “Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders participated in the network’s first town hall this election cycle, which garnered 2.6 million viewers — over 500,000 more viewers than the second most-watched one.”
Do you think Fox made a mistake in having Pete Buttigieg on their show?
