CNN’s “Equality Town Hall” Gets Beaten in Ratings By Fox Coverage of Trump Rally

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Democrats have been doing these forums to showcase the candidates on a variety of issues.

The one on Thursday, fiver hours covered by CNN, was termed the “Equality Town Hall.”

If the reaction to the forum of the ratings is any indication, this isn’t going exactly the way Democrats had hoped it might.

The forum came in dead last. It was beaten out by Fox which came in number one in total viewers as well as the crucial 25-54 demographic. The network was covering mostly President Donald Trump’s rally in Minnesota during that period. Second was MSNBC.

From Townhall:

Fox News was in first place for the entirety of CNN’s nearly five-hour long town hall from 7:30 p.m.-12 a.m. by averaging 3.7 million viewers and 662,000 in the 25-54 demo.

CNN was in last place by having an average of 1.1 million total viewers and 320,000 in the 25-54 demo, meaning Fox News had a triple-digit advantage over CNN.

The forum was interrupted repeatedly by trans activists, including Blossom Brown who interrupted the question of a nine year old child talking about being transgender and chastised CNN for not giving adequate voice to black transwomen.

“Let me tell you something, black transwomen are being killed in this country, and CNN, you have erased black transwomen for the last time. Let me tell you something, black transwomen are dying! Our lives matter! I am an extraordinary black transwoman, and I deserve to be here!” said activist Blossom Brown.

Even after moderator Don Lemon asked for the microphone, Brown continued her rant,”Black trans women are being killed in this country! Black trans women are dying and our lives matter! Not one black trans woman or man has been given the mic tonight.”

There were other moments such as this one with Beto O’Rourke saying that churches, schools and charities should lose their tax exempt status if they didn’t support gay marriage.

Then there was Joe Biden recalling the time of “gay bath houses” and it being about “round the clock sex.”

From NRO:

“Remember, Anderson? Back 15, 20 years ago when we talked about this in San Francisco, it was all about, well, gay bath houses. It was all about round-the-clock sex. Come on, man. Gay couples are more likely to stay together longer than heterosexual couples.”

Let’s not leave out Elizabeth Warren who mocked religious people who might not support gay marriage.

Elizabeth Warren, the other co-frontrunner in the Democratic primary, apologized for opposing taxpayer-funding of sex-change operations for prisoners during her 2012 Senate campaign. One questioner asked Warren what she would say to a religious supporter of hers who opposes same-sex marriage: “A supporter approaches you and says, ‘Senator, I’m old-fashioned and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman.’ What is your response?”

“Well, I’m going to assume it’s a guy who said that and I’m going to say, ‘Then just marry one woman. I’m cool with that.’” The audience laughed and applauded. “Assuming you can find one,” she added. Zing!

Remember that question started with the person being a supporter, she assumed his gender. Like as not, he/she wouldn’t be a supporter after being mocked. Way to convince people to your point of view. But folks on the left on social media cheered her response. Warren is now for tax-payer funding for sex change operations for prisoners.

What these forums have shown is how little respect Democrats have for individual rights and different beliefs, and how ready they are to trample them over in the interest of pandering for votes.

Once upon a time, Democrats used to be considered by some to be the party of the worker, desirous of reaching out to middle America. No longer. It’s the Republican Party who’s reaching out to that forgotten worker and to help improve the lives of all Americans, regardless of who they are. That’s what Trump is appealing to as he did again in Minnesota on Thursday.
