WATCH: The View comments as Elizabeth Warren declines Fox News invitation
Elizabeth Warren is terrified of going on Fox News, that much is clear. She is terrified of being asked questions like:
“Why did you lie about being Native American to get a teaching job at Harvard?”
“Why do you call rich people evil when you and your husband have a combined net worth of $11 million?”
“Why do you not pay more of your $11 million in taxes or give hardly any money to charity?”
“Can you name one country where socialism has worked?”
That would be glorious. Because she is afraid, she avoids Fox News like the plague. Finally, she was called out for it.
So we are supposed to believe she’s brave enough to do what needs to be done with Iran, North Korea, Russia, and China, but not brave enough to handle a few questions from Fox News? Give me a break.
From The Daily Wire:
ABC’s “The View” slammed Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Wednesday for cowering out of a Fox News interview and claiming that she did so because the network promoted “racism” and “hate.”
“It may be a minority opinion, but I think that it’s being very dismissive of so many Americans for her not to go on Fox News,” leftist co-host Sunny Hostin said. “I think if you want to be the president of the United States, for everyone, then you need to speak to everyone.”
Conservative-leaning co-host Meghan McCain said: “You’ve got to go to spaces that are uncomfortable.”
Even left-leaning co-host Whoopi Goldberg joined in on criticizing Warren, saying: “If you can’t face the Fox audience, you can’t face the U.S. It’s that simple.”
The Washington Examiner reported that Warren’s decision to not go on the network, where she will undoubtedly face the toughest questions, may be a major mistake for the far-left Democrat.
“There is an audience for authentic, left-wing politicians at the infamously right-wing cable network, according to new Morning Consult polling data,” the Examiner reported. “In fact, seriously progressive politics are received better by ‘potential Democratic primary voters’ who watch Fox News than those who watch CNN or even MSNBC, according to the group.”
“I love town halls. I’ve done more than 70 since January, and I’m glad to have a television audience be a part of them. Fox News has invited me to do a town hall, but I’m turning them down —here’s why… Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists — it’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life and death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class.”
Warren went on to claim: “Hate-for-profit works only if there’s profit, so Fox News balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies with enough legit journalism to make the claim to advertisers that it’s a reputable news outlet. It’s all about dragging in ad money — big ad money. But Fox News is struggling as more and more advertisers pull out of their hate-filled space. A Democratic town hall gives the Fox News sales team a way to tell potential sponsors it’s safe to buy ads on Fox — no harm to their brand or reputation (spoiler: It’s not).”
