Pete Buttigieg Gets Standing Ovation On Fox, Trump Loses It

The envy is strong with this one. Apparently, Fox News is moving a little too far away from the Dark Side for Trump’s taste, because they actually invited Pete Buttigieg to do a town hall Sunday. Buttigieg was well received, standing ovation no less,  and Trump just can’t stand the out of town team scoring points on his home court. So of course he went to Twitter to sulk.

Chris Wallace probably likes Fred Trump better, too. At least Fred actually knew how to make a buck, Donald, all you know is how to lose one.

And watch what you say about who “will never be president.” Those were the exact same words applied to you, they will come back to haunt you. Trust us, we know.

But we understand how it must feel to listen to an intelligent, articulate man, who actually did attend the best schools, Harvard and Oxford, and who does know all the best words — in seven foreign languages — and you have a 200 word vocabulary in your native tongue. Moreover, Pete Buttigieg actually served his country in the military, while your daddy paid some quack in the building to write up a fraudulent medical report about your non existent bone spurs, because you’re a coward.

We get it, that Mayor Pete is a real Christian and you mocked communion, calling it, “my little wine and my little wafer” — which makes sense since you handled them with your little hands and little brain. You are a Christian in no sense of the word, merely a figurehead for corrupt tent revival televangelists, who sell snake oil and rob people blind just like you.

Yeah, we get it. We get that you saw an actual statesman instead of a shyster on Fox TV and him looking so good made you look so bad. He actually talks about issues which he understands, and can communicate with people, while you do soundbites to gin up the base. Whole different prospect.

Get used to it, Donald. This is the way it’s going to be up until election day, when you lose bigly and fade into total irrelevance and obscurity. Watch Sean Hannity play Brutus to your Caesar then. That’s in your future, while Buttigieg, or some Democrat, cleans up your horrific mess. Yep, we get that you’re freaked, because a standing ovation for a Democrat on Fox News means that you might not be running the show over there any more — and without your propaganda arm, megaphoning your bullshit, you’re just an inarticulate little carnival barker in the weeds. No more Ringling Brothers sized crowds, you’ll do well to get an audience the size of the midnight showing of “Spinal Tap.”

When you lose Fox, you lose it all, Donald, and Bernie’s successful appearance, and now Mayor Pete’s, are the foreshadowings of that event.

The Trump train is going off the rails — starting with your mind, Donald, starting with your mind. Just like Daddy.

The last time I went to a midnight showing of ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’, the theater was full. I see more of a ‘Spinal Tap’ ending for Dimwit Donny.
Second bill to some puppets at a children’s park, and no-one turning up for that.

This was a great one, so snarky! I love it! And is that disgusting photo of Trump goblin photoshopped?

I agree with mae, Ursula … and I can see it now, Trump out for another rant at our expense … Concinnity , my take is he sets up a circus tent, because no city will let him in into town proper, signs posted all over it, “COME SEE ME the best President EVER”,. A farmer from a nearby farm, is driving by, hears what sounds like Trump’s searing voice on the PA, decides to check out the crowd, steps into tent … only one other person besides Trump there … the sound man running MIC tests … The farmer… Read more »

It is very pleasant to envision his downfall. He won’t be president forever, no matter what he thinks. It will end, in some form or fashion.

Truly, Cmae, the central Republican delusion is that they were able to live forever. It’s only now, after wasting the first two decades of this century with their prejudices, that they realize their mistake…far too late for it to help them.

A bit from Psalms 23 comes to mind for Mayor Pete: “Thou preparest a table in the presence of mine enemies.” Interesting how Fox News suddenly wants to host Dem candidates, isn’t it? A cynical man–like, say, me–might think that they’re laying the groundwork for a post-Trump world by being so “reasonable”. It doesn’t bode well for Mr. Tangerine Man.

Oh, and that first photo at the top is the most hideous one of Trump I’ve seen yet, no neck or chin.

He reminds me of a grouper.

Darrel

He definitely reminds me of some kind of sea monster, he always shoots his venom out through those guppy lips of a sneer that can bring on severe sessions of nausea and TV survival problems … I’m a bit worried, though, because of his limited attention span and zero knowledge, the mustache bozo might just mention, “now we have our forces in position, it’s a go on IRAN”, god help us ALL !!

His obvious war mongering and statements about IRAN over the years should put him out on the curb for trash pickup … 😉

Warmongering actually is a lot more complicated than the last go-around. It’s that way because of the sea monster you were talking. To wit, not only does Trump have an attention span of 0.1 nanoseconds, not only does he have such a low IQ as to make fellow sea monster Godzilla look like a member of Mensa, but he’s deathly afraid of commitment. Think about it…the only military stuff he’s done is one-and-done actions like that botched raid in Yemen and the MOAB he dropped in Afghanistan. Past that, it’s all been saber rattling to make people come to the… Read more »

Don’t you mean groper?

And no Democrat should be party to this and allow themselves to be a patsy. When I am feeling kindly, I chalk it up to Pete’s naivety. As for Bernie, I seldom feel kindly, but I just assume it’s because he thinks his platform is so compelling everyone would fall in line behind him if they heard it.

I personally find myself thinking of the late Harvey Milk and the debates he opted to have with his opposition in 1970s Orange County, California, which was as hostile as territory got for him. Sometimes you show your enemy who you are by going right into his lair. I give Mayor Pete the credit for his boldness. I refuse to give the same to Bernie. Petty of me, yes, but that’s how I feel.

Hoo boy, Ms. Faw, that’s taking it to where that ITCCOTOO (Idiot Traffic Cone Currently Occupying the Oval Office) lives! Keep up the good work, babe.

Brilliant article…read this three times…finally someone who supports our country is running for office…articulate and smart!!! Looks like he leaves TRUMP in the dust! Someone must get rid of this asshole…he is a danger to our country and constitution!😡

Mayor Pete is my guy for the primaries. Much like his model Obama, he has an indefinable something that makes you pay attention.

Um…. “finally”? You think the other 20 Democrats don’t support our country, and aren’t “smart and articulate”? Because they do and they are, and all of them leave Trump in the dust.

I’m with Warren on the Fox issue. They provide just enough news and “bipartisan” Town Halls to legitimize the hate arm of the Fox propaganda machine…which means that three hours a year we get town halls, from noon to three pm we get some mildly slanted actual news, then every night during prime time we get a streak of black, inky, oleaginous hatred and bigotry. Democrats can reach Fox viewers elsewhere; they don’t need to go on Fox and help legitimize it in order to do so. We should not be boosting their ratings or giving them ammunition to tell… Read more »

I agree totally. Warren is extremely savvy and, I think, understands what is real going on here and the fact that the liabilities outweigh any long-shot potential benefits. I don’t know that I would call these appearances “shameful,” but I feel they are tone-deaf and counterproductive, although I have more compelling reasons to say I would never vote for Bernie in the primary OR general. For me to to so, he’s got to first fire anyone in his campaign who has openly said they didn’t support our nominee in 2016. Until he does this, he has no right to demand… Read more »

Shameful was not very good word choice. I like “tone deaf and counterproductive” a lot more. I would love to see Sanders truly buckle down and help build a diverse, tolerant, productive party. But he’s been divisive since before I was born, and whether or not a zebra can change their stripes I don’t really expect him to do so. He really, really dislikes people who disagree with him or stand in his way, and if he loses to someone who falls into this category I think his attitude will be very similar to 2016…which I wouldn’t categorize as either… Read more »

While Buttigieg’s shortcomings can be chalked up to inexperience and youth, Sanders’ shortcomings are harder to excuse. He’s the ultimate “establishment” insider in this race, having been in government longer than anyone other than Biden. Yet too often he still acts like petulant child sulking because everyone isn’t paying attention to him and telling him how brilliant his ideas are.

Actually, Rory, I’ve less flattering things to call that attitude of Bernie’s: petty, stupid and entitled. More and more, I ask myself how different he actually is from Trump in outlook.

“It’s a trap”. Elizabeth Warren has pointed out that making Fox look “Fair and Balanced” will help Fox make money and more effective propaganda. It looks like they loaded the audience with fakes to achieve that purpose. I don’t buy it.

I would have to agree it’s a setup, I don’t think Murdoch is losing enough money to get off the Adderall-Addled Assclown train just yet.

My understanding is that it’s not Murdoch but his sons driving the Fox train these days. It’ll likely be a gradual weaning, enough to soak the rubes for money while trying to branch out.

First of all, I believe Buttigieg is showing his — misjudgment? pious pompousness? — by going on Fox “News.” There are zero primary voters to be won there and not many more persuadable general election voters.Mayor Pete is too transparently desperate to make history without a compelling reason. But that’s just typical self-important Buttigieg and he’s not the one I’m disgusted with this afternoon. I have open on my computer desktop an email purportedly from the “President of the United States.” I wish I believed a sulky eight-year-old had hijacked his email. It’s his “Official Worst Democratic Candidate Straw Poll,”… Read more »

I have not and will never call Donald John Trump President for a variety of reasons. Yes, he has the power of office. Yes, he lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. But his time feels more like an interregnum than anything else.

And I will NEVER forget nor forgive W and his crew for paving the way for this would-be Mussolini. The worst thing that crew ever did in this respect was take all the competent higher leadership with them when they left, leaving the vacuum that Trump filled.

I stumbled upon the Fox News Town Hall with Mayor Pete, and I’m so glad I did! He really impressed the audience, and even Chris Wallace seemed to enjoy the interview. Every time I see Mayor Pete, I like him more and more. He’s articulate, a good sense of humor, and he explains his plans clearly and succinctly. We have so many darned great Dem candidates this year, that it’s difficult to pick one. That’s a good problem for us to have!!
