Comedian Bill Maher criticized Dems for refusing to appear on Fox News for any presidential debates.
“Tom Perez, the chairman of the DNC, said last week that Fox News “is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates,” citing a recent New Yorker article that detailed the network’s especially cozy relationship with the Trump administration.”
So he really laid into Dems for their cowardly act.
“New rule: Grow a pair. Last week, the Democrats made a terrible decision when they announced that they had turned down Fox News’s offer to host one of their 2020 primary debates, saying that Fox was nothing more than propaganda. OK, so why not go on Fox News and tell them that?” Maher said.
You wanna be in the big leagues, but you refuse to ever play an away game? You don’t like the questions that Fox News might ask, so you’re deciding not to take any questions at all? How very Trump of you.
This is a fundamental problem with The Democratic Party, they look weak: running from a fight when they should be in there throwing punches.
Republicans never shy away from coming on this show, and they come with a smile on their face despite knowing that the only people in the crowd cheering them on are the three campaign aides they brought with them … The audience is against them and they don’t care — it’s an opportunity to expose people to your side of the story.”
“Mahercited a 2017 poll that found 19 percent of all voters — both Democratic and Republican — claimed Fox News was their main source of campaign news, totaling more than NBC, ABC and CBS combined.”
