Laura Ingraham did not appreciate being called out by Mayor Pete Buttigeig on Fox News, and she fired right back last night.
From the Hill:
Ingraham shot back on Monday, saying “beyond his Boy Scout demeanor and Mayor Pete shtick, Buttigieg is but another creation of a media apparatus desperate to oust Trump.”
Jabbing at Buttigieg’s faith-related town hall remarks, Ingraham added that “maybe we should call him ‘Pope Pete.’ ”
“Don’t you love how, because Pete attends church, we are to treat him like the be-all and end-all moral authority? The arbiter of who is and who is not operating in good faith?” she said.
“So he finds conservative media objectionable, but the third-trimester abortions? They are perfectly moral,” Ingraham said before showing a clip of Buttigieg saying he “trusts women” to draw the line when it comes to abortion.
“Well is that an example of good faith? Is that what you actually call that?” Ingraham added. “I think we need a papal proclamation.”
Ingraham also issued an invite for Buttigieg to come on her show, but said she would not “let him traffic in the generalities of complex issues.”
Hmmmm. I wonder if he’ll take up her challenge. That would be fun, and something hee needs since his campaign is flailing behind the other white male b-democrats, Biden and Bernie.
Here’s part of it:
Laura Ingraham wants Pete Buttigieg to come on her show so she can ask him about his "father’s Marxist pedigree," tell her about the "glories of socialism that family members, maybe your dad, championed" and whether he was "steeped in them at home" pic.twitter.com/TOtnntHBjM— Justin Baragona (@justinbaragona) May 21, 2019
