The prime-time hosts of Fox News followed the playbook of President Donald Trump in responding to criticism from Democratic hopeful Pete Buttigieg during his Sunday night town hall on their network: hit back ten times as hard.
In his highly publicized town hall with anchor Chris Wallace, the South Bend, Indiana mayor and 2020 candidate noted that there was controversy about him even coming on Fox News at all.
“I get where that’s coming from especially when you see what goes on with some opinion hosts on this network,” Buttigieg told Wallace. “I mean when you’ve got Tucker Carlson saying that immigrants make America dirty. When you’ve got Laura Ingraham comparing detention centers with children in cages to summer camps.”
For his part, 8 p.m. host Tucker Carlson dedicated the opening of his show to Buttigieg’s rival, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. But he eventually turned to Mayor Pete, deriding him as a “slippery demagogue” in a segment on his abortion comments. Next up, Sean Hannity went much deeper, but almost entirely focused on his disagreements with Buttigieg’s policy — though he also fairly hit the Democrat’s record as South Bend mayor, based on a report on his absences from the city:
“And by the way, Mr. Pete, what record do you have?” Hannity asked. “Because a new report shows you’re hardly ever the mayor of South Bend. Who’s running the city while you’re out raising money in LA and New York with all your rich friends who want you to be president, supposedly?”
