Bernie Sanders Defends Doing Town Hall on Fox News: We Need to Reach Trump Voters, Tell Them ‘He Lied to You’

Senator Bernie Sanders defended his decision to do a town hall on Fox News following the DNC’s decision to not let the network host any debates.

Last night on The Daily Show, Trevor Noah brought up the issue and the criticism from some that “it’s not a legitimate news organization.”

“Trust me, I know Fox News,” Sanders responded. “I know who they are and I know the role that they are playing. So, to me, it is important to distinguish Fox News from the many millions of people who watch Fox News.”

He said it’s important to reach those people and tell them, “I know that many of you voted for Donald Trump, but he lied to you.”
