Chris Wallace wants you to think that he’s a “fair and balanced” centrist, but he also thinks you’re stupid enough to not notice his slavish devotion to left-leaning talking points.
In his latest attempt at hoodwinking his audience, Wallace praised Joe Biden for being “disciplined” and “in the center.”
Anchor Bill Hemmer asked, “How would you size up the first month of the Biden presidency, the good and the bad?”
Wallace replied, “I think surprisingly good, has been how disciplined he has been. You know, those of us who covered Joe Biden for a while know that he makes gaffes, he says things he doesn’t want to, goes down various paths. There hasn’t been much of that under President Biden. He has been very focused and disciplined in terms of his activities, in terms of his messages, and he really has kept to the idea that COVID, the public health aspect and economic aspect is job one. ”
Wallace continued, “Where I think you can give him some negative marks, conservatives won’t like his agenda, but he won. They won’t like all the executive orders, but he won. You know, there has been some mixed messaging — not so much gaffes but mixed messaging when it comes to the vaccine, when will we go back to normal, when will vaccines available, when will schools reopen?…Given the fact he is a liberal Democrat, I suspect that most people — the people that voted for him are pretty pleased. I will say one thing that I was impressed by in the town hall on CNN this week.”
Gag. The only remarkable thing about Wallace’s comments is how perfectly they fit the narrative that the Biden administration is putting out there. Wallace just regurgitating the idea that Biden, who has done nothing but empower the left, is somehow “centrist.”
His reputation is toast. Chris Wallace may as well be on CNN.
