VAgov: McAuliffe abruptly ends interview, tells local Virginia reporter, 'You should've asked better questions'

The left is becoming, if it isn't already there, the party of no debate. If liberals don't like something in a political conversation, they want to end that discussion. Most college campuses operate under this system.

Last month Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe said, "I don't think parents should be telling schools what they should teach."

Of course he doesn't. Liberals always believe know better than those not similarly enlightened. Even when it involves parents and their children. Leftists of course can point to all of their "successes," since taking control of the federal government this year, such as the supply-chain crisis, anemic job growth, more COVID deaths in 2021 than 2020 (when the mean Tweeter was president), and of course the Afghanistan debacle. 

This week an ABC affiliate interviewed both McAuliffe and his Republican rival.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe cut his interview short with a local Virginia TV station and scolded the reporter for not asking "better questions." WJLA 7News reporter Nick Minock conducted interviews with the former governor and his GOP rival Glenn Youngkin, sharing highlights on air while releasing the full interviews and transcripts online.
However, WJLA anchor Jonathan Elias offered a disclaimer to viewers who may notice that Youngkin's interview was much longer than McAuliffe's.
"So if you watch those entire interviews on our website, we do want to point out that the Terry McAuliffe interview is shorter than our interview with Glenn Youngkin. That was not by our doing," Elias told viewers during Tuesday's evening newscast. "Nick offered both candidates 20 minutes exactly to be fair for the interviews.
McAuliffe abruptly ended 7News' interview after just 10 minutes and told Nick that he should have asked better questions and that Nick should have asked questions 7News viewers care about. That's what he said."
