Joe Scarborough Credits Klobuchar for Town Hall: ‘There Are Persuadables That Watch Fox News’

Democratic 2020 hopeful Amy Klobuchar got some praise from MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough on Friday morning for her decision to do a Fox News Town Hall.

“We were so glad you did a Fox News debate,”  Scarborough told Klobuchar on his show, adding that Democcats should not just preach “to the choir all the time.”

He further lauded her willingness to branch out of coverage comfort zone.

“It seems like Democrats have been uncomfortable going out and talking to people who may not agree with them 100% of the time,” Scarborough continued on.

He then said that he loved the senator from Minnesota went on Fox News.

“There are persuadables that watch Fox News,” he said.

Klobuchar responded by saying reaching out across the aisle is the only way to govern.

“I did it because that is how I have governed and how I have won my elections in a purple state,” she explained. “And that is going not just where it’s comfortable but where it’s uncomfortable,” she said. “There is just no other way you can govern.”
