Fox News’ Chris Wallace suddenly shut down 2020 hopeful Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) Sunday night after she attacked the cable news network when asked to comment on late-term and partial-birth abortions.
Ever since certain pansy Democrats said they do not want Fox News to moderate any of their primary debates, Democrat 2020 candidates have felt comfortable insulting the news network on the air. For example, Mayor Pete Buttigieg-edge-edge-edge went on Fox News and trashed Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. Now, it’s between-0-and-1-percent Gillibrand’s turn.
“What I’m asking you Senator, is what is your position on late-term or last-term abortions,” a member of the audience asked.
“What we have created, unfortunately, is a false choice and a false narrative,” she said. “And Chris, I want to talk about the role that Fox News plays in this because it’s a problem. I can tell you before President Trump gave his State of the Union, Fox News talked about infanticide,” said Gillibrand.

That’s when Wallace jumped in and shut the senator down, giving her a lesson in politeness.
“Senator, I just want to say, we’ve brought you here for an hour,” Wallace said. “We’ve treated you very fairly. I understand that maybe to make your credentials with the Democrats who are not appearing on Fox News you want to attack us. I’m not sure it’s frankly very polite when we’ve invited you to be here.”
The Fox News host continued, “Instead of talking about Fox News why don’t you answer Susan’s question.”
The reason Fox talked about infanticide is that the Illinois House had just passed a controversial pro-abortion bill last week, removing the state’s ban on partial-birth abortion which happens in the final trimester stages of pregnancy.
Late-term abortions have also become news as of late with some states passing what are deemed “Heartbeat” laws at the same time progressive states are repealing partial-birth abortion laws, and some are talking about infanticide, like Virginia Governor Ralph Northam.
