McAuliffe Berates Reporter for Not Asking ‘Better Questions’

McAuliffe Berates Reporter for Not Asking ‘Better Questions’

October 20, 2021

Far-left Virginia Gubernatorial candidate Terry McCauliffe reportedly ended a recent interview early and berated the reporter for not asking “better questions.”

According to ABC7, the network had reporter Nick Minock conduct two interviews with the opposing candidates for governor – one with McCauliffe and the other with Republican Glenn Youngkin. The interviews were to be 20 minutes apiece, but midway through McCauliffe’s interview, he ended it and scolded the reporter.

“If you watch those entire interviews on our website, we do want to point out that the Terry McCauliffe interview is shorter than our interview with Glenn Youngkin,” said an ABC7 anchor during a Tuesday broadcast. “That was not by our doing.”

Minock asked McAuliffe about vaccine mandates for children, which the former governor spun into the subject of abortion: “[Youngkin] is a Donald trump right-wing agenda. He will ban abortions. Your viewers should be very clear on this. He wants to ban abortions here in Virginia. He says election integrity is the number one issue. No, it isn’t. Healthcare, COVID, education, job creation.”

A McAuliffe staffer interjected to tell Minock falsely that he was “over time,” prompting the former governor’s rude exit.

“All right, we are over. That’s it. That’s it. Hey I gave you extra time,” lied a miffed McAuliffe. “C’mon man. You should have asked better questions early on. You should have asked questions your viewers care about.”

“Well, we did,” responded Minock.

What McAuliffe meant was, Minock should have asked questions that made McAuliffe look good — an impossible task.
