(Liberty Bell) – It’s no secret that Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace hates former President Donald Trump with the intensity of a thousand burning suns. He always has had it out for the guy ever since his first run for office back in 2016. Each time Wallace has hosted a debate as the moderator, he inserted himself into the mix and became a secondary opponent for Trump to deal with.
Well, according to Breitbart, Wallace is absolutely tickled pink by how the Democrats are building a case against Trump for a post-presidential impeachment trial, gushing during the news network’s coverage of the event about the left’s “very strong” case.
“I thought it was a very powerful opening,” the Fox News host stated. “It had a lot of substance to it. It had a lot of technological slickness to it. The video of the events of January 6. The use of graphics to make the point about what’s in the Constitution. The historical precedent. I thought what was particularly in a legal, as opposed to the emotional side, in a very strict legal argument. I thought Joe Neguse, the congressman from Colorado, made a particularly strong argument. What he did, he took a conservative legal philosophy, originalism, textualism, read the Constitution exactly as it was written, and used that against the president.”
“I thought his close was very strong. ‘What happened on January 6,’ he said, ‘is the framers’ worst nightmare come to life,’ and that a president can’t enflame insurrection and run away. You are going to hear this over and over again — ‘January exception.’ The idea that a president commit crimes, allegedly, and then leave office, and somehow he’s thereby off the hook,” Wallace added.
“I will say one last thing as someone who’s covered a lot of trials. When you hear one side’s argument it seems like that’s overwhelming — and how could there be any argument on the other side? The defense is going to take two hours now to present the reasons why this trial shouldn’t be held, and I’m sure they will make a lot of good points, too. So let’s just wait and listen,” he concluded.
Yeah, there’s no bias here at all, right? Wallace is a totally objective voice in all of this. Said no one ever.
Wallace has time and again sacrificed journalistic integrity and objectivity to deliver scathing rebukes to former President Trump simply because he is not an establishment pawn that can be pushed around and controlled. Wallace represents everything that is wrong and broken within the Republican Party. People like him are why the GOP has gotten so used to losing in recent decades.
Let’s hope that one day he grows up and actually does his job with honor and integrity.
