During the debate held Tuesday evening, it became apparent early on that Fox News host Chris Wallace, who was moderating the event, was biased against the president and ended up becoming the second debate opponent for Trump to face off against.
Wallace continually interrupted Trump and didn’t really give him much time to answer questions. The questions he asked were worded in such a way that it quickly became obvious that they were loaded and from a left-wing perspective.
Multiple hosts from Fox News were livid with their colleague over his moderator performance and were not shy about sharing their criticisms online.
Here’s more from Daily Caller:
“Trump is debating the moderator and Biden,” Fox’s Laura Ingraham tweeted.
Host Greg Gutfeld seemed to agree with Ingraham, re-tweeting multiple comments about Trump debating two people. In one retweet, podcast host Stephen L. Miller wrote that “Wallace is grilling Trump on his supporters taking to the streets when antifa is burning businesses down right now.”
“A draw between the contestants/combatants & a loss for the moderator,” another comment re-tweeted by Gutfeld reads. Gutfeld also wrote it “was not good” that Wallace laughed along with Biden at one point during the debate.
In a since-deleted tweet, Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade also aimed at Wallace, tweeting that it “looks like 2 V 1” debate at times. Kilmeade wondered why Biden was “allowed to interrupt” while Trump was not in a second tweet.
Ingraham also went on to tweet that “Biden seems to interrupt with impunity.”
Another Fox News contributor, Andy McCarthy, said that Wallace “should get out of the way” and went on to call out the moderator for not pressing Biden on his statement concerning the Green New Deal.
“Chris Wallace jumps in a second time when Biden having trouble with Trump’s questioning,” he said.
The criticism for Wallace extended well beyond Fox News. Other pundits and commentators were also furious with his treatment of the president.
