Unlikely Reception to Sanders on Fox News Worthy of Full Page Ad?

Bernie’s Fox News town hall event smashed expectations, and was apparently worthy of a little gloating from the network.

A peculiar thing occurred in American politics last week, but perhaps it shouldn’t be seen as such an outlier.

In a move that shocked many, including President Trump, Bernie Sanders had an amicable and poignant “Presidential Town Hall” on Fox News.  Given the wild biases of the mainstream media, particularly when it comes to the far-left leaning democratic socialist from Vermont, many assumed that Sanders’ appearance on Fox would have been a bloodbath.

Quite to the contrary, however, Sanders received a decidedly warm reception, even eliciting a hearty cheer from the crowd when explaining his “Medicare for all” wishes.

Perhaps the nation truly is suffering from Obamacare in ways that many of us may have predicted.

This sort of open-minded political positioning has become rare these days, thanks to the inflammatory practices of the mainstream media.  Fox’s gambling on Bernie paid off big-time, however, and the event has now received a full page advertisement in The Washington Post proclaiming its success.

The numbers were simply incredible:

The ad comes three days after nearly 2.6 million viewers tuned into Fox News’s town hall with Sanders on Monday night, making it the most-watched town hall of this campaign cycle so far, according to Nielsen Media Research.

The live event, co-moderated by “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier and “The Story” anchor Martha MacCallum, also delivered 489,000 viewers in the 25- to 54-year-old age bracket that many advertisers cater to.

Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, provided Fox News with a considerable ratings bump compared to the same day last year. The network saw an increase of 24 percent in total viewers and 40 percent in the 25- to 54-year-old demographic.

It certainly stands to reason that a great many of these viewers were tuning in in order to size up Sanders, who at this time appears to be the likely opponent for Donald Trump come 2020.

Even so, this willingness to engage productively in politics is something that many believed was waning in America in 2019, and could be seen as a positive sign moving forward.

Now just imagine what these numbers will look like when Trump takes the stage…Fox or not.

Trump Reportedly Fired Ukraine Ambassador After Learning She Meddled In Biden Investigation

If so, she could be in some trouble…

When the United States ambassador to Ukraine was abruptly fired in recent days, eyebrows were raised. Why would President Trump do such a thing at a time when tensions with the Eastern European nation are slightly heightened, due to a phone call POTUS had with the leader of the country? Oh, that Trump. Always doing something to cover up a scandal! Or so Democrats thought. Apparently, the ambassador was doing some shady stuff and team Trump said, not so fast – please kindly see yourself out of the building. Here are all the details known, thus far… From The Blaze: On Friday’s radio program, award-winning investigative journalist John Solomon joined Glenn Beck to detail how Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, obstructed investigations into potential corruption and interference by Democratic and Ukrainian officials in the 2016 U.S. election. The Trump administration recalled Yovanovitch from her post in May. The whistleblower complaint at the center of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump alleged that Yovanovitch was recalled because of claims made by former Prosecutor General Yuri Lutsenko. Continued: A White House memo of the July 25 phone call referenced in the whistleblower complaint, documents President Trump speaking to Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky about Yovanovitch. “The former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news and the people she was dealing with in the Ukraine were bad news, so I just want to let you know that,” he said.

Siblings Upset That Brother Was Shot Dead By Store Clerk While Attempting Armed Robbery (Watch)

This might just be the video of the year…

People deal with grief in different ways. Is there a right and wrong way to grieve? Yes, apparently. There is. For example, if your brother points a gun at a store clerk and demands all the cash in the safe, you can’t be all that mad when he is shot dead. In fact, it should be expected. You’d think, right? Not for these two ignoramuses, though. They think the clerk was in the wrong for defending himself. Yeah, for real. This might just be the video of the year. No hyperbole. It’s that jaw-dropping. It goes to show how ridiculous some people truly are. ENJOY: Dayton, Ohio family outraged their sibling was shot dead by a store clerk while attempting an armed robbery https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1183153740972359680?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1183153740972359680&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F What’s that, Forrest? You have something to say? Okay then… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vt9q-WChfeM America is quickly going the way of Europe when it comes to nonsensical gun policies. Take this convenience store worker, for example. He was fired for defending his own life! From Fox News: Oregon authorities are seeking a would-be thief who was armed with a hatchet when he tried to rob a convenience store, only to flee when the clerk drew a gun and called 911. However, the clerk’s quick thinking cost him his job, with the president of Plaid Pantry in Oak Grove explaining to local station KOIN-TV that the chain has a zero-tolerance policy for weapons. He said employees are trained to de-escalate robbery situations to avoid injury, according to the station. The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office on Friday released surveillance video of the incident which took place April 28 at the store, seeking tips in identifying the suspect who fled empty-handed and without the 12-inch hatchet.
