Brian Kilmeade Blasts Pete Buttigieg’s Comments on Jefferson Memorials: ‘What a Clown!’
While Pete Buttigieg’s performance during a Fox News town hall earned an in-studio standing ovation — and plaudits on other cable news outlets — Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade remains unimpressed, dismissing the South Bend Mayor and presidential hopeful by saying “what a clown!”
At issue are Buttigieg’s past comments in which he expressed concern over Thomas Jefferson’s “racial history” and “suggested that some of the things honoring him the traditional Jefferson-Jackson democratic dinners should be renamed” is how town hall host Chris Wallace described it.
Kilmeade called Buttigieg a “clown” in the tease to a segment that followed a commercial break, then continued with the dismissive mien in the interview that followed.
Interestingly, the Fox & Friends segment perfectly exemplified what Buttigieg dismissed as the “media noise machine on the right wing that takes things out of control.”
Or as esteemed Twitterer Bobby Lewis points out:
Fox guest claims that “the way it was reported” prior to Buttigieg’s town hall was that Mayor Pete “wanted to have Jefferson stricken from the history books,” except Buttigieg’s original verbatim comment was that “it’s not like we’re blotting him out of the history books.” pic.twitter.com/ov9aw0u1ok
