(AmericanPoliticalDaily.com)- Several Fox News hosts laid into Chris Wallace, the fellow Fox anchor who hosted the first presidential debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, this week. Wallace not only struggled to maintain order at the debate but repeatedly defended Joe Biden and even laughed along with the Democratic candidate while repeating several lies about the president.
The performance was widely criticized not just by Republicans, but by Wallace’s own colleagues who noted how Wallace appeared to be debating Trump alongside Biden.
In a tweet, Laura Ingraham said that Trump was “debating the moderate and Biden.”

While Wallace won’t admit to working against President Trump during the debates, he did admit that he lost control of the debate.
Perhaps the debate might have been easier to control, however, if he hadn’t laughed along with the Democratic candidate and push the debunked lie that President Donald Trump called white supremacists “very fine people.”
“I never dreamt that it would go off the tracks the way it did,” Wallace told the far-left New York Times. “I’ve read some of the reviews, I know people think, well, gee, I didn’t jump in soon enough.”
Fox News host Greg Gutfeld agreed with Ingraham. He retweeted several comments that disparaged Wallace and suggested Trump was being treated unfairly.
One such Twitter post he retweeted was by Stephen L. Miller, a podcast, host, who said that “Wallace is grilling Trump on his supporters taking to the streets when antifa is burning businesses down right now.”
Gutfeld said that Wallace’s laughing along with Biden was “not good.”
That was not good

Brian Kilmeade also said, in a Tweet that has since been deleted, that the debate appeared to be a “2 V 1,” and later asked why Joe Biden was allowed to interrupt but President Trump was not.

Ingraham even said that Biden “seem to interrupt with impunity.”
But, none of this is new. Remember how exactly the same thing happened in the 2016 debates with Hillary Clinton?
In the wake of the debate, the Commission On Presidential Debates has suggested that new measures might be taken to maintain order. It is widely speculated that these measures may include giving moderators the opportunity to cut the mic of candidates when they choose to.
We all know what that means…
