He's losing it in several ways.

Terry McAuliffe is losing his nerve, his composure, and the election. He’s so distraught because he blew a double digit lead that Democrats are trying to change election rules in counties, Fairfax for one, less than two weeks before the election.

McAuliffe called in both Biden and Harris. Bad timing, as even McAuliffe admitted both are unpopular in Virginia. Then why did he do it? He said educrats should have the only say in education. Parents went ballistic. Now he’s trying to walk it back, but nobody’s buying it. He’s in trouble and the gubernatorial mansion could get a Republican tenant.

FNC: “Outnumbered” co-host Kayleigh McEnany said on Wednesday that Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe cut short his interview short with a local Virginia TV station because the Democrats largely believe the media is on their side. 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 on Tuesday evening. “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.”

Former White House spox Kayleigh McEnany responded. “The Democrats definitely believe that the press is in their corner. Just listen to their own words. Nancy Pelosi last week said you’re not doing enough in the media to sell my $3.5 trillion plan. Bernie said ‘hey, you don’t know what’s in the plan. America doesn’t know because the media has not told people.”
