Top Obama Advisor Takes Swipe At Fox News Viewers On Fox News Sunday

White House Senior Advisor David Plouffe made the rounds on the Sunday morning talk shows, but the conversation got a little testy in his appearance on Fox News Sunday. When Chris Wallace questioned why Democrats were now fine with some budget cuts that just a few weeks ago they called “draconian,” Plouffe took the opportunity to speak about the Fox News viewers.

Plouffe explained to Wallace, “compromise is not a dirty word – even with a lot of your viewers it shouldn’t be.” He continued speaking until Wallace realized what just happened, laughed and asked “what do you mean even a lot of our viewers?” Plouffe responded “the American people want compromise,” with the apparent implication being that Fox’s audience frowns upon compromise? Yet, Wallace was likely in good spirits regardless, since it seems officials from the Obama administration are no longer skipping his show.
