OK, this is just getting embarrassing.
Fox News keeps inviting Pete Buttigieg on, hoping to humiliate him in a “gotcha” moment. Instead, their exchange always goes viral with #SlayerPete utterly humiliating them.
and still, yet AGAIN
But like Charlie Brown and the proverbial football, Fox refuses to quit. Each time, new hosts challenge the throne.
I mean, the Fox people have all the advantages here. He’s on THEIR turf. THEY know what questions they are going to ask him, and can spend days or weeks practicing responses and, in this case, coming up with fancy graphics to help shoot him down. On the other hand, Pete has seconds to come up with a response.
And yet, Pete calmly and rationally took apart their argument, leaving the Fox hosts frustrated that nothing they worked on was going to fly. They just aren’t used to guests who are well-informed, know their job, and can articulate policy.
Fox’s graphic called the infrastructure plan a Trojan horse. Pete: “It’s not Trojan, it’s American. And, it’s not a horse. It’s a highway system.”
I find it ridiculous that Fox is trying to argue that Biden isn’t spending enough on roads and bridges. If he quadrupled the investment, I can promise you Fox wouldn’t like it one bit more.
The extremely wealthy got the largest tax cut in history under Trump, and by curtailing that, we can invest real money into our crumbling infrastructure. It needs to happen now. It’s popular. It’s happening. And there isn’t a damn thing Fox and the GOP can do about it.
You are always welcome to invite him back again, Fox. Unfortunately for you, he will always show. When you mess with the Buttigieg, you get the horns.
