Donald Trump Questions Chris Wallace’s Fairness Ahead Of Debate

“Kilmeade did push back on Trump’s comments, where he stated that no one controls Wallace, but the President stayed ground to his belief that Wallace will give him the difficult questions.”

A few days ago, the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates announced that Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace would serve as the moderator for the first debate between President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. 

However, the decision to go with Wallace isn’t sitting well with Trump, who was on Fox News Radio with host Brian Kilmeade and voiced his displeasure. The President stated that the Fox News anchor is “controlled by the radical left” and that the debate will be “unfair.”

Kilmeade did push back on Trump’s comments, where he stated that no one controls Wallace, but the President stayed ground to his belief that Wallace will give him the difficult questions. 

“Chris is good, but I would be willing to bet that he won’t ask Biden tough questions. He will ask tough questions of me, and it will be unfair, I have no doubt about it,” Trump said. 

The Hill suggests that Trump is trying to lower expectations for himself for Tuesdays’ debate at the Case Western University and the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. Nonetheless, both men have the topics ahead of time to prepare their responses.

“It’s over, but they just don’t know it’s over.”

24-hour news channels have been around for decades. But with the advent of social media and digital platforms, 95.5 WSB afternoon host Eric Von Haessler believes the outlets have become obsolete.

While discussing the 2024 election and cable news on The Von Haessler Doctrine Thursday, the Atlanta-based host shared his belief that the heyday of cable news has come to a close.

“I’ve been wondering this lately,” Von Haessler began. “With CNN’s numbers just so bad — all the 24-hour news channels, it’s over, but they just don’t know it’s over.”

He then half-jokingly, half-seriously questioned if those at CNN were actually hoping Donald Trump would win the upcoming 2024 election, despite their on-air personas featuring disdain for the former president.

“Do you think it’s possible that the people at CNN are secretly hoping for Trump to win? I mean, their ratings are, for them, through the roof,” Von Haessler said. “You get okay ratings just scaring people about Trump. But if Trump’s really there, he’s a real threat. I think, secretly, Anderson Cooper is going to vote for Donald Trump.”
