A Fox News anchor exaggerated Trump’s record and Pete Buttigieg’s takedown was spectacular
Not long to go until America chooses its next president and over at Fox News they’re doing all they can to big up Donald Trump’s record.
Except one-time Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg – who is likely to be given a prominent role in the event of a Joe Biden win – was having none of it.
And it makes for very satisfying viewing.
All you have to do is google the numbers on the Obama-Biden economy versus the Trump economy. The Trump economic disaster is a matter of simple fact. pic.twitter.com/txlcHzkJVy

The clip went wildly viral and here are just a few of the things people were saying about it.
This is a lopsided mismatch.
Fox News seems to think their numbskull anchors can hold their own against Mayor Pete and they so very much can’t. https://t.co/ZA4tlIDpwg
