Pete Buttigieg Takes Extreme Position on Abortion During Fox News Town Hall

  • Ahead of Fox News Forum Buttigieg Critical of Hosts and TrumpMore

Buttigieg's town hall had an average of 1.1 million viewers with 172,000 in the key 25-54 age demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research.

He's talking about the presence of Democrats on Fox News.

A veteran, he said the "hostile takeover of the Republican Party" by Trump makes the 2020 election particularly important. As was the case with Fox's Bernie Sanders town hall, much of the audience responded enthusiastically to the South Bend mayor, at one point giving him a standing ovation, as noted by Mediaite.

Wallace asked the 2020 Democratic presidential contender about his views on whether abortion should be outlawed at any stage during pregnancy just days after Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) signed into law the most stringently pro-life legislation in the country.

"I think the dialogue has got so caught up on where you draw the line that we've gotten away from the fundamental question of who gets to draw the line", he said.

Mr. Buttigieg said the number of abortions that do occur in the third trimester represents a very small percentage of them, and that women who choose to get an abortion that late have likely been expecting to carry the child to term.

One person who would have preferred that Buttigieg not go on Fox News?

He accused the network of "wasting airtime on Mayor Pete" on Twitter Sunday, and repeated his attacks Monday at a Pennsylvania rally, saying to his supporters, "What's going on with Fox, by the way? Fox is moving more and more to the losing (wrong) side in covering the Dems", Trump wrote. In response, Fox News Senior Vice President Bill Sammon issued a statement urging the DNC to reconsider.

The prime-time hosts of Fox News followed the playbook of President Donald Trump in responding to criticism from Democratic hopeful Pete Buttigieg during his Sunday night town hall on their network: hit back ten times as hard.

The Democratic National Committee has also given FOX the cold shoulder, announcing earlier this year that they had changed their minds and won't be partnering with the network for any of their primary debates.

"Alfred E. Newman will never be President!" he concluded in the second tweet.
