Conservative website The Gateway Pundit has begun a petition to boycott Fox News host Christ Wallace and his Sunday morning talk show Fox News Sunday.
The petition comes in the wake of Wallace’s performance as moderator for the first presidential debate between President Trump and VP Joe Biden last week, which The Federalist’s Kylee Zempel called the “most embarrassing moderator performance in history.”
From The Gateway Pundit:
“On Tuesday night Chris Wallace joined Joe Biden to tag-team on President Trump in the first presidential debate.
It was a disgusting display.
Chris Wallace did everything he could to interrupt, condemn, correct and even lecture the President of the United States!
Wallace, a DC elitist, consciously attempted to flip the election to Joe Biden and the radical Marxists in the Democrat Party.
This wasn’t a surprise.
Chris Wallace hates Trump. He has been against Trump since the billionaire businessman announced his run for president.
Not only did Wallace attack the President but he would not allow President Trump discuss his amazing records or successes as President of the United States.
Wallace hates Trump and his supporters.
Wallace has NO RESPECT for Trump nation.
Enough is Enough.
Today we are launching a petition to Boycott Trump-Hater Chris Wallace and FOX News Sunday.
We refuse to support this Trump hater.
We plan on sending our total signatures to FOX News.”
Wallace, however, faults President Trump’s for ruining the “preparation” Wallace and his team of researchers did:
“And you know, I felt that I had gotten all of the ingredients. I had baked this beautiful, delicious cake and frankly, the president put his foot in it. And that was frustrating, frustrating for me because I tried hard to prepare for a serious debate, [and] much more frustrating, importantly, for the American people because they didn’t get the debate they wanted and that they deserved. And that’s a loss for the country,” Wallace said.
“Hindsight is 20/20,” Wallace said, when responding directly to criticism about his personal performance during the debate.
