BTRTN: Crazy Like Fox... Dems Should Follow Bernie Across the Cable DMZ

Born To Run The Numbers on the Barr, Hannity, and why Bernie Sanders was brilliant to do a town hall on Fox News.

http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2019/05/btrtn-crazy-like-fox-dems-should-follow.html

Excerpts:
"When Bernie Sanders went on Fox, he ventured across the 38th parallel of cable news and spoke to the isolated and programmed North Hannity-ites on the other side, who finally may have discovered that Democrats were not the 'hate and hysteria' people that Dear Leader claims them to be... Bernie did well. He deftly used humor to defuse tension, and his Fox hosts were stunned by positive reactions among the town hall participants to Bernieís ideas about government-sponsored healthcare...
"Most important, Bernie Sanders's gamble on Fox helps illuminate an essential truth. The ferocious loyalty of Donald Trump's base is the fuel for his assault on our democracy. As long as he exerts his mind-control over these people, cowardly Republican Senators are terrified of taking Trump on. As long as the base controls those Senators, Trump knows he can't be impeached. If he can't be impeached, he feels emboldened to trample our Constitution and our institutions of government to preserve his power and further cloak his history of illegal activity. By eroding, weakening, and crushing those institutional checks on executive power, Trump is ever more able to limit oversight, obstructing justice in an entirely new way.
"The Democrats should be offering to do ten debates on Fox. Can you imagine what might happen if Democrats had three hours on Fox Prime time once a week? How much they could discuss the realities of what has happened under Donald Trumpís leadership? To point out the lies, the deceits, and the many ways in which Donald Trumpís policies are actually hurting the people who are voting for him?"

1. I personally like the way the party is dealing with Fox.

 

Each candidate will make their own decision and the party doesnít give them debates. I think itís the perfect mix and another sign of the great leadership of Perez.
