Virginia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe on Tuesday abruptly ended an interview with 7News and berated the reporter for asking tough questions.
“Ok, we’re over! You should have asked better questions early on. You should have asked questions your viewers care about,” McAuliffe said as he got up from his seat and ended the interview after only 10 minutes.
“Well, we did,” the reporter said.

7News said the reporter gave both Virginia gubernatorial candidates 20 minutes each (read the full transcript of both interviews here).
McAuliffe decided to end the interview after only 10 minutes.
The reporter asked McAuliffe if he wanted to correct the record on his previous comment that parents shouldn’t tell schools what to teach their kids.
He said “no.”
McAuliffe falsely claimed AGAIN that “Critical Race Theory is not taught in Virginia” and said opposing it is “racist.”
The reporter also asked about crime and public safety.
McAuliffe couldn’t take the heat and ran away.
“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,” a 7News anchor said.
