Trump Bashes Fox News For Being ‘So Smiley And Nice’ With Bernie Sanders

President Donald Trump on Tuesday faulted Fox News — “and the ‘audience,'” he said, using scare quotes — for being “so smiley and nice” with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) during a town hall the network aired Monday night with the Democratic presidential contender. 

Trump also noted that Fox News recently hired former DNC chair Donna Brazile as a contributor.

Bret Baier, who co-moderated the Sanders town hall alongside Martha MacCallum, responded diplomatically. 

It’s understandable that Trump’s upset about the town hall on what might otherwise be considered his “home turf.” The event went pretty well for Sanders:

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
