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.”
….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 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?”
