Chris Wallace Defends Biden Administration Amidst Afghanistan Chaos

The Fox News host Chris Wallace spoke out over the weekend to defend the Joe Biden administration for their communications efforts during the Afghanistan airlift.

Fox News host Sandra Smith kicked things off by paraphrasing Rep. Jake Ellzey (R-TX) as saying, “he appreciates the updates, but why are we getting spokespeople?”

“And it’s a fair question,” Smith said in agreement.

Wallace, however, felt differently.

“We had the president for the better part a half an hour yesterday,” Wallace said, according to Salon. “Not only making a very heart-felt statement, but also taking a number of questions.”

“They can’t be giving speeches all of the time, they’ve got to be doing their job,” he continued. “Look, anybody can criticize what they want, but this week we’ve had the National Security Advisor, earlier this week we had the Secretary of State, we had the president yesterday for half an hour. I think we’re getting most of the answers we need.”

Wallace went on to tell Smith about a mantra that was said during his time as a White House correspondent.

“I spent six years in that briefing room and we used to say, ‘You don’t tell us how to cover the stories, we won’t tell you how to do your communications strategy,'” he said.

This comes days after Wallace said that the Biden presidency would be in jeopardy “if there is an attack on the U.S. homeland from Afghanistan after the withdrawal of all of our troops.”

“Remember back in 2009 — this is before Osama bin Laden was killed — when Joe Biden came in as the vice president to Barack Obama, there was a discussion that went on for weeks about what to do about Afghanistan, and the president ended up going with the military and surging tens of thousands of troops to Afghanistan,” Wallace said. “Then-Vice President Biden was against that. In fact, said to President Obama, you are being rolled by the Pentagon. He felt at the time it should be a counterterrorism effort.”

“We’re going to have zero troops, at least officially, on the ground, and that raises the real question, when they say, well, we have an over the horizon capability to take out ISIS-K, or Al Qaeda, or the Taliban,” he added. “I read somewhere today, someone saying it’s an over the horizon, over the horizon capability.”

“We are so diminished in our ability to deal with all the jihadists that will come into that part of the world, into Afghanistan, and that’s going to raise real questions,” Wallace continued. “You know, as bad as yesterday was, the president can come back from that, but if there is an attack on the U.S. homeland from Afghanistan after the withdrawal of all of our troops — that could be curtains for the Biden presidency.”

Chris can downplay Biden’s screwups all he wants, but in the still moments his conscious reminds him how he helped Biden get elected. Chris the blood is on your hands…and you will live with it for the rest of your life!!!

Chris Wallace is a useful idiot. He thinks people really listen and cares what he says and thinks. But everyone knows he’s just there until he’s canceled out. As soon as people see how corrupt FOX is now and the viewers go to Newsmax and OAN then Wallace will be gone

FOX definitely needs to send Chrissy Wallace over to CNN. But I love Tucker, Hannity, Ingraham, Waters, Judge Jeanine, Steve Hilton, and the Gutfeld shows! They speak my language!!

Fox is the worst run news cast on the air wave, those kids have their heads up their you know what. Between Wallace and Williamis no body watches it anymore.

Greg Gutfield has the highest rating of any of the night shows on any network as of the most recent polls. So I guess there are a lot of people watching. I love his show, Tucker, Hannity, Ingraham, Hilton, Waters, and Jeanine, too. And last I heard, they also mostly beat out other audiences in their timespots. So while I definitely would like to see them send Wallace, Williams, and Rivera over to CNN, I would hate to lose out on the other patriots’ shows!

Chrissy’s got a heavy lift ahead of him to keep this DB as propped up as B Hussein O. needed.

Et tu, Wally?? Unbelievable that anyone — I mean anyone — even little bowing-down, Trump-hating minion Chris Wallace, could defend a single thing about this travesty! Even our allies are turning their backs on us, and he wants to say something positive about it? But then, he DID help the White House “squatter” win the election by throwing the presidential debate entirely his way, didn’t he?? So perhaps not so hard to understand after all!
