Fox News’ Rachel Campos-Duffy Attacks Mayor Pete’s Recently-Deceased Dad

Fox News contributor Rachel Campos-Duffy attacked Democratic presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg and his dead father, Joseph, as “radicals.”

Campos-Duffy was upset that Pete had called out the hypocrisy of Christian evangelicals who support Trump during a speech on April 7, notes NBC News:

That’s the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand: That if you have a problem with who I am, your quarrel is not with me. Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.

Campos-Duffy, who claims to be a Christian, fired back at Pete by smearing him and his father:

I think if you lift up the hood on Mayor Pete, you’ll see [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez]. He’s radical, his dad is a radical — was, he recently died — Marxist professor. I think he puts a mild face just like Obama on some pretty radical policies.

In reality, Joseph Buttigieg was a professor at the University of Notre Dame, where he famously transplated the prison diaries of Antonio Gramsci, an Italian Marxist. Joseph died on January 27, 2019.
