Poor Chris Wallace just did not know when to shut the hell up during the debate. At times, it felt like he wanted to be a participant more than anything.
A good debate moderator should be like a boxing referee. You should barely notice them and they should only step in when necessary. It felt the other night that Wallace was doing everything he could to help Biden.
Fox News host Chris Wallace was heavily criticized online by his network colleagues and others following his hostile position toward President Donald Trump during Tuesday’s debate in Cleveland.
Wallace, though, did not appear intent on letting Trump answer the question uninterrupted.
“I got rid of the individual mandate,” Trump said with regard to the Affordable Care Act.
After Wallace continually interrupted Trump over the subject, the president said, “I guess I’m debating you, not him.”
Benny Johnson, of the conservative group Talking Points USA, pointed it out.

Wallace also interrupted Trump by a ratio of more than five times to one than he did Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, according to the Trump campaign.
