Elizabeth Warren went on a long Twitter tirade this week about why she refuses to do a town hall event on FOX News. Now she is getting criticism from an unlikely source.
The ladies of The View suggested that if Warren can’t speak to FOX News viewers, she can’t speak to the country.

‘The View’ Hosts All Rip Warren for Refusing to Go on Fox News: ‘Very Dismissive,’ ‘Shortsighted on Her Part’
The hosts of The View rarely all agree, but on Wednesday they were largely one voice in saying Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) had made a mistake in refusing to appear on Fox News.
Warren issued a scathing series of tweets Tuesday explaining why she declined a Fox News invitation to do a town hall. She called the top-rated cable network a “hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists.”
After the four ABC hosts on Wednesday found out in real time who former Rep. John Delaney (D., Md.) was and that he was running for president—Delaney said he would gladly take Warren’s place on Fox—liberal host Sunny Hostin said Warren was being “very dismissive.”
“It may be a minority opinion, but I think that it’s being very dismissive of so many Americans for her not to go on Fox News,” Hostin said, noting its strong ratings and praising journalists like Shepard Smith and Chris Wallace. “I think if you want to be the President of the United States, for everyone, then you need to speak to everyone.”…
“If you can’t face the Fox audience, you can’t face the U.S.,” host Whoopi Goldberg said. “It’s that simple.”

And that’s not all. Even the folks at Morning Joe are criticizing Warren over this.

‘Morning Joe’ Bashes Elizabeth Warren’s Decision to Snub Fox News Town Hall
A day after Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren rejected Fox News’ offer to participate in one of the its town halls, calling the network a “hate-for-profit racket,” the crew at MSNBC’s Morning Joe criticized the Massachusetts senator’s decision while also suggesting she was right to claim the network peddles in bigotry and conspiracy theories.
Co-host Joe Scarborough kicked off the conversation Wednesday morning by asking if Warren would be able to reach out to swing voters by going on Fox News, especially since some of their anchors like Chris Wallace are “pretty darn straight.”
This prompted Mika Brzezinski to concede that the network was “exactly as Elizabeth Warren describes it” as it has a “direct connection from a corrupt president who is a racist” before ultimately chastising Warren for rejecting the invitation.
This really does make Warren look even more out of touch.
