That didn’t go quite as planned for Fox News.

During a town hall Monday with Bernie Sanders, anchor Bret Baier asked the audience a question about insurance.

“This audience has a lot of Democrats in it. It has Republicans, independents, Democratic socialists, conservatives. I want to ask the audience a question, if you could raise your hand here, a show of hands of how many people get their insurance from work, private insurance, right now? How many get it from private insurance?”

Quite a few hands went up.

“Of those, how many are willing to transition to what the senator says, a government-run system?” Baier asked.

Even more hands went up, along with cheers and hoots and hollers.
