Key moments from Pete Buttigieg’s Fox News town hall

-Mayor Pete Buttigieg. -You know, a lot of folksin my party were critical of me for evendoing this with Fox News. -I’ve heard that. -And I get wherethat’s coming from, specially when you seewhat goes on with some of the opinionhosts on this network. I intend when you’ve gotTucker Carlson saying immigrantsmake America dirty, when you’ve got Laura Ingrahamcomparing detention centers with children in cagesto summer camps.Summer tents. Then there is a reasonwhy anybody has to swallow hard-handed and think twicebefore participating in this media ecosystem. But I likewise believe that eventhough some of those emcees are not always therein good faith, I conclude a lot of parties tuneinto this network who do it in good faith.

He’s “re making fun of” your inspections, likening you to Alfred E. Neuman.-We have a young man, Buttigieg. “Boot, shape, edge.” They say “edge, edge.” He’s got a great chance, doesn’t he? He’ll be great. -How would you be addressed with him? Because that’s one of the concerns, I conclude, for Democrat. “Who can be onthe debate stage? ” And how would you handlethe offends and the attacksand the tweets and all of that? -The tweets are — I don’t care. It’s a very effective wayto command the attention of the media.-Well…-And I think that we needto make sure that we’re changing the channelfrom this show that he’s organized because what matters –And I get onto. Look, it’s mesmerizing. It’s hard for anybodyto look away. Me, too. It is the natureof grotesque things, that you can’t look away ..
