Trump Sulks Over Fox News Holding Town Hall With Buttigieg: ‘Wasting Airtime’

May 19, 2019 5:54 p.m.

President Donald Trump is displeased with Fox News for hosting a town hall with 2020 Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg on Sunday night.

“Hard to believe that @FoxNews is wasting airtime on Mayor Pete, as Chris Wallace likes to call him,” Trump complained in a series of tweets on Sunday. “Fox is moving more and more to the losing (wrong) side in covering the Dems.”

Trump posted similarly whiny tweets after Fox News held a town hall with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in April.

“So weird to watch Crazy Bernie on @FoxNews. Not surprisingly, @BretBaier and the ‘audience’ was so smiley and nice,” Trump tweeted.

His complaining dragged on to the next day. “Many Trump Fans & Signs were outside of the @FoxNews Studio last night in the now thriving (Thank you President Trump) Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, for the interview with Crazy Bernie Sanders,” POTUS tweeted. “Big complaints about not being let in-stuffed with Bernie supporters. What’s with @FoxNews?”
