Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace, who was hailed by liberals for his tough interview of President Donald Trump, last week called out former Vice President Joe Biden for turning down an opportunity for a similar interview this week.
“In our interview last week with President Trump, he questioned whether his Democratic opponent Joe Biden could handle a similar encounter,” Wallace said Sunday. “Well, this week, we asked the Biden campaign for an interview, and they said the former vice president was not available.”
Wallace was referring to this comment from Trump on how Biden would fare in a similar situation:
“Let Biden sit through an interview like this. He’ll be on the ground crying for mommy. He’ll say, ‘Mommy, Mommy, please, take me home.’”
The Biden campaign has carefully choreographed the former veep’s public appearances to minimize the potential for gaffes and an interview with Wallace is probably not high on their agenda given the propensity for Biden to commit gaffes.
But Wallace is undeterred by the Biden campaign’s response and said, “We’ll keep asking every week.”
