- 71K Views
Shortly after the presidential debate on Tuesday evening, Fox News hosts ganged up on moderator and colleague Chris Wallace after he purposely combatted with President Trump throughout the night.
Both former Vice President Joe Biden and President Trump were combative however Wallace seemed to only care about calling out President Trump.
Now it appears that there is a civil war a brewing at Fox News considering some of his colleagues are calling him out.
“Trump is debating the moderator and Biden,” said Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
Fox News host Greg Gutfeld seemed to agree considering he retweeted several tweets that called out Wallace including one from conservative podcast host Stephen L. Miller which read, “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,” said another tweet that was retweeted by Gutfeld.
Fox News host Brian Kilmeade also took a shot at Wallace but has since deleted the tweet.
"Why is @JoeBiden allowed to interrupt? @realDonaldTrump is not," he said before deleting the tweet.
“Biden seems to interrupt with impunity,” Ingraham also noted.
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
Meanwhile, Fox News contributor Andy McCarthy said that Wallace “should get out of the way” and called him out for not pressing Biden on the Green New Deal.
“Chris Wallace jumps in a second time when Biden having trouble with Trump’s questioning,” McCarthy noted.
Despite negative feedback from some of Wallace’s co-workers, others at Fox defended him. Geraldo Rivera, for example, wrote that “criticism of #ChrisWallace is misplaced” and that he ended up “in the middle of a knife fight.”
“Chris Wallace signed up to host a debate on policy,” co-host of Fox & Friends Jedediah Bila tweeted. “With adults. It shouldn’t be his job to get any grown adult to behave appropriately. Try doing that job without the ability to cut a mic, while having to keep your temper in check. Not so easy.”
Fox News’ national correspondent Bryan Llenas retweeted multiple people defending Wallace after the debate, including Bila’s commentary.
