Warren Clucks Like A Chicken, Says Trump is Scared of Joe Biden

Appearing on the show “The Real,” Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren made “clucking” sounds after suggesting President Donald Trump was too chicken to debate Joe Biden virtually.
Warren said: “He knows that he just got spanked in that first debate. He got out there and he blustered and he strutted around. And a lot of Americans who might have been on the fence might have supported him the last time around said, ‘I’m done with this guy.’ So I think that’s the main reason he didn’t show up.”
Fox News anchor Chris Wallace came under heavy fire from just about everyone for how he moderated and handled the first presidential debate.
During a telephone interview with the Los Angeles Times, Wallace spoke out on his thoughts on the contentious debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
"I did what I could," Wallace said, seemingly blaming Trump for the disastrous debate by suggesting the president kept interrupting Biden.
“Obviously It was not the debate I had planned for, and to that degree, I was disappointed,” Wallace said.
He continued “I think debates are about revealing what [the candidates] think. You certainly gained an insight into Donald Trump and what he’s thinking and where he wants to take the country and how he wants to take the country there. To that degree, I thought it was a success. It may not have been pretty, but it was revealing.”
Wallace said he initially was encouraged by the back and forth exchange between Trump and Biden, explaining: “My initial reaction was, ‘This is great. They’re going to go at it, and I can take the evening off.”
However, he says “it became clear at a certain point that the president wasn’t planning to back off and was going to keep interrupting throughout the evening.”
Wallace then seemed to blame Trump for the chaos and said: “the interruptions got in the way of a substantive discussion of serious issues and follow-ups to those issues. I thought it wasted a lot of time.”
Wallace also said he didn't think Trump did well by interrupting, saying: “Trump never went to Plan B. He just stayed on Plan A the entire evening, and I don’t think it served him especially well.”
Wallace was also heavily criticized online by his network colleagues following his hostile position toward Trump.
To some critics, the debate appeared to be a two-on-one battle with Trump in a corner alone, which led many of Wallace’s colleagues at Fox News to chime in, including Fox hosts Laura Ingraham, Greg Gutfeld, and Brian Kilmeade, as well as Fox contributor Andrew McCarthy.
Altogether, the debate was widely panned by just about everyone.
During a segment on CNN, network correspondent Dana Bash referred to the debate as being nothing short of a “sh*t show.”
CNN's Jake Tapper called it a: “That was a hot mess, inside a dumpster fire, inside a train wreck” and said it was “the worst debate I have ever seen.”
