Chris Wallace of Fox News hasn’t made any friends with conservatives lately.
From hosting a horrendous debate where he seemed to believe himself to be a participant, to trashing the president on air every single chance he gets, he’s defined himself as one of the most vehemently anti-Republican anchors atFox.
Even with that reputation, he really out-did himself this weekend when he harrassed Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar for referring to Joe Biden as the “vice-president,” rather than “president-elect” as Chris Wallace and the Fox News robots prefer.
Wallace felt so strongly that he interrupted the secretary’s commentary on COVID-19 more than once to insist he change how he speaks about Joe Biden.
The first time was when when Secretary Azar was answering a question comparing Biden’s push for masks.
Wallace asked: “If President Trump had worn a mask then and urged everyone to wear a mask then, back in April, the way Joe Biden is right now, wouldn’t we be in better shape?”
Azar attempted to respond, saying “Well, Chris, I welcome Vice President Biden to the club. Since the middle of April, the president’s guidelines have called for …””
Wallace interrupted to say, “He’s the president-elect.”
All of the other times her interjected were equally annoying.
What Wallace apparently fails to realize is:
- Technically, Joe Biden is NOT the president-elect until the Electoral College certifies his election on December 14th – which is all up in the air right now as President Trump’s team wages a serious war on the election results.
- No one cares what Secretary Azar calls Joe Biden and even fewer people than that care what Chris Wallace wants Secretary Azar to call Joe Biden.
Typical Chris distracted viewers from the facts to make his whole segment with the HHS secretary about himself.
Not a good look, Chris!
Honestly, it’s so unwatchable I’m not even going to post the stupid video. That would provide more views than Chris Wallace deserves.
