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.”
