Fox News anchor Chris Wallace made no secret about how he felt watching President Joe Biden’s Inauguration speech Wednesday, calling it “the best inaugural address” he has ever heard.
“A lot of this event today, a lot of the president’s speech, was colored by the emotion of the fact that exactly two weeks ago, 14 days ago, there was a mob, a buzz of insurrectionists, of domestic terrorists on the inaugural stand.”
Wallace pointed to Biden’s particular focus on unity in the wake of a pandemic that has taken more than 400,000 American lives.
“Talking directly to the American people, saying, hear me out. We have a right to dissent peacefully, but our disagreement must not lead to disunion,” Wallace said.
Wallace told his Fox News colleagues that Biden’s speech reminded him of speeches that he has witnessed over the years, including President John F. Kennedy in 1961.
“I think it was less an inaugural address and more part sermon, part pep talk.”
Dan Crenshaw Fires Back at Tucker Carlson for “Eyepatch McCain” Remark
Crenshaw called the Fox News host “juvenile” for his remarks.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) responded to Tucker Carlson, who called the politician “eyepatch McCain” during a conversation about foreign policy. Crenshaw called the Fox News host “juvenile” for his remarks.
Crenshaw had previously conveyed to Fox News host Trey Gowdy that people who do not back sending $40 billion to Ukraine for their war are “pro-Russia.” As a result, Carlson went after the representative.
“Why is Congress so focused on Ukraine, but you can’t find baby formula?” Carlson said. “According to congressman Dan Crenshaw of Texas, asking questions like that, or really any questions at all, thinking you are a citizen, makes you’ pro-Russia.’”
“You know, the more I think about it, it takes a lot of gall for or eyepatch McCain to attack moms who are worried about baby formula as pro-Russia.”
Crenshaw spoke with The Daily Caller, responding to the remarks by the host, who was a co-founder of the outlet.
“You hurl juvenile insults when you know you’ve lost the debate,” Crenshaw said. “I stand by every word I said in my interview with Trey Gowdy.”
Joy Reid: Tucker Carlson Injects Racist Plot Theories into Republican Voters
MSNBC’s Joy Reid recently accused Carlson of “injecting racist conspiracy theory into the veins of Republican voters.”
Left-wing pundits continue to attack Fox News’ Tucker Carlson labeling him as a racist in the aftermath of a supermarket massacre that left 10 people dead.
According to Breitbart, MSNBC’s Joy Reid recently accused him of “injecting racist conspiracy theory into the veins of Republican voters.”
“No singular voice in right-wing media has done more to elevate this racist conspiracy theory than Tucker, who, even with a new head writer, spends night after primetime injecting the rot from the dregs of the internet directly into the veins of Republican voters.”
The “ReidOut” host discussed a narrative that has become popular when discussing Carlson’s show and that is something called replacement theory. Carlson broached the idea when discussing the mass influx of migrants across the Southern Border.
“The reality is, Tucker is not some deep thinker,” said Reid. “He’s clearly just channeling the gross stuff his viewers could easily find online, then feeding it to Republican voters and Republican politicians as infotainment, and that feedback loop has terrifying reach.”
