‘You wanna be in the big leagues, but you refuse to ever play an away game?’…
(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) Liberal comedian Bill Maher slammed the Democratic Party for being unwilling to allow Fox News to host a Democratic presidential primary debate, telling Democrats to “grow a pair.”
“Last week, the Democrats made a terrible decision when they announced that they had turned down Fox News’s offer to host one of their 2020 primary debates, saying that Fox was nothing more than propaganda. OK, so why not go on Fox News and tell them that?” Maher said.
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez recently announced that Fox News would not be invited to host a primary debate because of its hosts’ support for President Donald Trump.
“Fox News has led me to conclude that the network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates. Therefore, Fox News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates,” Perez said in a statement.
Maher said that by refusing to include Fox News, Democrats have become their own worst enemy.
“You wanna be in the big leagues, but you refuse to ever play an away game? You don’t like the questions that Fox News might ask, so you’re deciding not to take any questions at all? How very Trump of you,” he said.
“Republicans never shy away from coming on this show, and they come with a smile on their face despite knowing that the only people in the crowd cheering them on are the three campaign aides they brought with them … The audience is against them and they don’t care — it’s an opportunity to expose people to your side of the story,” he continued.
Maher pointed out that several prominent Democratic politicians regularly appear on Fox News despite their disagreements with the channel.
“You have to get inside the bubble,” Maher said. “You call yourself the resistance, then fight behind behind enemy lines .… Get out of your echo chamber, and infiltrate theirs.”
