    Sanders takes on Fox — and emerges triumphant

    https://www.politico.com/story/2019/04/15/bernie-sanders-millionaire-no-apology-1277009

    BETHLEHEM, Pa. — Bernie Sanders entered the Fox's den on Monday night — and he not only survived the hourlong encounter, but often dominated.

    Appearing at a Fox News-hosted town hall, smack in the middle of Trump Country, the Democratic presidential front-runner played the part, swatting down tough questions from the hosts about health care, defense spending and his newfound wealth. At one point, the Vermont senator even led the network’s audience in a call-and-response that found them cheering loudly for his policies.
    ...............................................................................................................
    Many have suggested that more Dems go on Faux so, for at least for the time they are on air, Faux can't get away with the usual lying deceit they engage in 24/7.

    Trump Bashes Fox News For Being ‘So Smiley And Nice’ With Bernie Sanders

    https://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/...-being-so-smiley-and-nice-with-bernie-sanders

    President Donald Trump on Tuesday faulted Fox News — “and the ‘audience,'” he said, using scare quotes — for being “so smiley and nice” with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) during a town hall the network aired Monday night with the Democratic presidential contender.
    ...................................................................................................................
    Don obviously expected that Bernie would get the usual attack dog treatment from his personal "news" network.

    Too bad the Democrats "straight white males need not apply" rule makes Bernie ineligible for the nomination. Trump would trounce him and his wacky socialist stupidity.

    One thing you're failing to keep in mind; trump has to run for re-election to trounce anyone and we aren't yet sure that will happen.

    Well I don't agree with President Trump this time. Only Fox dare challenge a liberal on their wacky theories of governance. But on the other hand, I do expect to see the MSM go on the attack against the old guard Democrats to clear a path for the "Chosen One", Camel Hairs.

    At least we are going to get to see someone inside the party of Trumpery test the waters and find out the degree to which the GOP has been debased by the lying, orange faced conman from Queens (completely as far as we can tell). Weld's biggest deficit..........he doesn't have a 24/7 cable TV station propagandizing for him.

    The debate will be fun with Trump center stage and Bill Weld at the far end of the stage and nobody in between.

    More democrats should go on FOX because they are the most fair and balanced as they showed with Sanders.

    Do you think the left would act that kindly if Trump were on their programs?

    Hahahaha

    I think it will good for the GOP and the country to have someone challenging the raving lunatic currently occupying the Oval Office. It might remind them how informed Repub candidates with integrity who run because they want to help the country and not themselves sound.

    It might remind people why we stayed far clear of self-promoting pandering establishment politicians who have no intentions of actually solving the problems they campaign on.

    Truly if Trump was half as bad as the deranged Media says, there would be 17 more Republican hopefuls doing their best to take Trump down a notch.

    It was a good thing for Bernie Sanders to address a FOX town hall. Other Democrats are lining up to do likewise. FOX is likely to be busy hosting Democrats this time around because 1) the Democratic bench is deep with talent, and 2) the Democrats are targeting the FOX audience. The welcome mat has been out for the GOP at all major news outlets (including CNN and MSNBC). Couple of takers is about it. Sorry the Bernie town meeting wasn't nasty enough for Trump. I guess most folks aren't built that way.

    Absolutely Democrats should go on Fox. Receiving an education, some for the first time in their life, would be beneficial to their audience

    It's also a good idea because it gives the Faux audience a chance to hear the truth for once.

    Are you trying to say Trump is an establishment politician?

    Fox treats is fair and balanced, as they advertise. MSNBC and CNN, not so much.
