Fox Host Chris Wallace under heavy fire for handling of presidential debate

Fox News host Chris Wallace is in hot water after his performance during the first of three presidential debates on Tuesday, with many calling for his firing from the network due to his handling of the contentious debate.

Wallace said ahead of the debate that he hopes to be “as invisible as possible” during Tuesday’s debate:

I’m trying to get them to engage…to focus on the key issues…to give people at home a sense of why they want to vote for one versus the other. If I’ve done my job right, at the end of the night, people will say, ‘That was a great debate, who was the moderator?’

Fast-forward to the next day, it became quite apparent soon after the debate began that Wallace was not going to be “invisible,” frequently interjecting and interrupting the chaotic debate — often in Joe Biden’s favor.

Wallace’s Fox colleagues exploded in criticism of his performance during and after the debate. Fox News contributor Andy McCarthy tweeted, “I love Chris Wallace, but he should get out of the way.”

Fox Host Greg Gutfield commented that Wallace laughing along with Biden during the course of the debate is “not good.” Former Fox host Bill O’Reilly remarked “Chris Wallace doesn’t have the facts at his command about the Ukraine payments made to Biden’s son that Trump brought up. Big mistake by Mr. Wallace.”

Other pundits and commentators took it to the next level, saying that Wallace should have been fired for the way he ran the debate.

When Chris Wallace stopped Trump from talking about Hunter Biden to interject about climate change, that’s when he should’ve been immediately fired and replaced. Right in the middle of the debate,” wrote Congressional candidate DeAnna Lorraine. 

Florida State Rep. Anthony Sabatini joined Lorraine’s calls for Wallace’s firing, writing on Twitter that “Fox News should fire Chris Wallace this week—dude has an agenda.”

  1. I was totally disgusted by the recent debate. I am sure that President Trump did not expect to debate both Biden and Wallace. Wallace certainly showed his true colors. If Biden even answered the questions he was given, he gave a quick half answer and then spent the rest of each two minutes spouting lies and half truths about President Trump. President Trump spent his time trying to correct the lies. Wallace needs to be fired. If he is a moderator I’ll eat my hat. He is not a good representative of Fox News.

  2. I thought Wallace did a terrible job. He seems to be bought by the D.N.C.to push there propaganda you can see his bias in the question asked. Biden position on facts are not always truthful and correct. It’s hard to fined a real investigating reporters. All we hear from the news today is liberal propaganda.

  3. Sadly it became apparent that Chris Wallace favored Joe Biden. We truly need someone who, dispite their political leanings, can be fair and balanced.

  4. Wallace should apply for a position with CNN. He would fit in nicely. He dosen”t like Trump and did a terrible time with the debate! HE SHOULD BE FIRED along with the token Wann Williams from the Five.

  5. I knew as soon as I heard Chris Wallace was the moderator what he would do, I was correct. I am not a fan and I have always felt he was at Fox as a token Liberal. Why would he have been chosen as moderator and by whom?

  6. Chris Wallace played down his real feelings about Pres. Trump in their interview so as to be there for Biden. It was planned as a hit job from the DNCommie party.

  7. Chris Wallace Should be fired he did a terrible job moderating the debate. He shut the president numerous times and let Biden say whatever he wanted it was just disgusting and I’m really tempted to stop watching Fox News.

  8. Wallace is deep state so of course he’ll laugh and side with Biden. That was a terrible debate presented by Wallace. He should be fired.
