Chris Wallace Stops Gillibrand in Her Tracks When She Starts Bashing Fox News During Town Hall With Network

Fox News anchor shut down Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) for criticizing Fox News during a Sunday town hall on the network.

The presidential candidate was answering a question about third-trimester abortion and added some criticism of the network in her answer.

“And Chris I want to talk about the role Fox News plays in this because it’s a problem,” said Gillibrand. “I can tell you before President Trump gave his State of the Union, Fox News talked about infanticide. Infanticide doesn’t exist.”

As IJR Red previously reported, the DNC banned Fox News from hosting Democratic primary debates, yet some candidates are attending town halls in an attempt to reach their audience. However, Wallace called her out for being critical while on the network.

“Senator, senator. I just want to say, we brought you here, gave you an hour, we’re treating you fairly. I understand that maybe to make your credentials with the Democrats who are not appearing on Fox News, you’re going to attack us. I’m not sure, it’s frankly very polite when we’ve invited you to be here.”

Gillibrand responded to Wallace saying, “I’ll do it in a polite way.”

Wallace stood his ground, suggesting that she finish answering the question.

Watch:

“Why don’t we, instead of talking about Fox News, why don’t you answer the questions,” Wallace said.

Gillibrand then continued with her answer, still criticizing the network.

“And what happens on Fox News is relevant because they talked about infanticide for 6.5 hours before President Trump’s State of the Union, they mentioned in 35 times.”

Candidates such as Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) have appeared on town halls and have also been highly critical of Fox News. While the network has asked the DNC to reconsider their decision, it seems unlikely that they will allow Democratic primary debates to be hosted by Fox News.

What do you think?

Gillibrand knows perfectly well babies are left to die if they survived an abortion. Of course if she gets her information from news sources other than Fox, then she could plead ignorance.

Ok, so I understand that it’s a women’s right to have control of her body, but once pregnant, what protection does the unborn child have? Who stands up for them?

She is a liar. She knows that infants born alive from abortion are left to die. She also knows that late term abortions inject babies with solutions to burn and suffocate the baby, killing it so they can remove it. She also knows that a later abortion requires literally pulling the baby apart joint by joint. Obama even suggested making sure a late term baby’s head be pierced in the brain to insure the child dies in order to protect the abortion clinic from lawsuits. Democrats are demons.

just curious which part of this is supposed to surprise us…it is always fox news or some none socialist democrat’s fault for their inability to discuss the issues, and yes to do so without spewing hate and division.
