Joe Biden held a town hall event on CNN on Wednesday night and it was pretty awful.
As usual, Biden stuttered and stammered his way through his remarks. Luckily for him, not many people were watching.
In fact, the event got completely crushed by the competition.
FOX News reports:
CNN’s Biden town hall flops, finishes behind Fox News, MSNBC with only 1.5 million viewers
CNN’s heavily promoted town hall event with President Biden failed to resonate with Americans on Wednesday night, as it got thumped by Fox News and even finished with a smaller audience than MSNBC.
The CNN Biden town hall, moderated by Don Lemon, averaged only 1.5 million viewers from 8-9:30 p.m. ET, while Fox News averaged 2.7 million viewers during the same time period. MSNBC averaged 1.6 million sets of eyeballs, which pushed CNN’s chat with the president to last place among relevant cable news stations.
Fox News beat CNN by a staggering 83 percent during the Biden town hall with regular programing on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and a special edition of “Hannity” that featured Florida Republicans Gov. Ron DeSantis, Sen. Marco Rubio, Rep. Maria Salazar and Miami Mayor Francis Suarez.
Every Fox News town hall event over the past five years outdrew Wednesday’s CNN event with Biden.
CNN’s town hall also failed to beat Fox News among the key demographic of adults age 25-54. CNN averaged 306,000 demo viewers during the event, compared to 464,000 for Fox News.
Check out this incredibly awkward moment. None of this even makes sense.
