Trump Slams Fox for Buttigieg Town Hall

The President has turned, slightly, against his favorite network, Fox News, after the channel gave South Bend Mayor and presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg a platform to talk with Fox viewers about his campaign and issues.

That came in a pair of tweets following Buttigieg's hour town hall Sunday night, moderated by Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday and son of iconic CBS newsman Mike Wallace: 


Buttigieg had gotten some grief for agreeing to appear on Fox, which has plenty of conservative commentators rooting for the other side. 

A number of Democratic presidential candidates have been agreeing to appear on the top-rated cable net in the town hall format, though Sen. Elizabeth Warren said no with a stinging exclamation point and Kamala Harris said thanks but no thanks too.
