Chris Wallace has become the laughingstock of Fox News.
At some point over the last year, Wallace decided it was good to become very vocal about his alliance with Joe Biden and the Democrats.
Now, Chris Wallace cannot contain his radically liberal views and the absurd thing he asked this top Republican proves it.
Loyal Fox News viewers have had it with Chris Wallace and his blatant attacks on the Right.
Indiana Congressman Jim Banks is Chairman of the Republican Study Committee.
The top Republican appeared in a recent interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday.
And how Wallace treated Jim Banks shows why loyal Fox News viewers have had it with Chris Wallace and his blatant attacks on the Right.
Wallace pushed quite possibly one of the most foolish Democrat talking points to date during the interview – that Republicans are in fact the ones defunding the police.
This lie is gaining ground among Democrats, with the White House and press secretary Jen Psaki now claiming it is indeed the fault of all Republicans that the police are being defunded.
They claim this is the case because many Republicans opposed the most recent COVID bailout that redistributed huge sums of taxpayer dollars to blue states, arguing Democrat officials who’d voted to defund the police would turn around and refund them with the bailout.
Wallace, referring to the Biden COVID bailout package, stated:
“Congressman Banks, you voted against that package, against the $350 billion, just like every other Republican in the House and Senate, So can’t you make the argument that it’s you and the Republicans who are defunding the police?”
The Congressman tried to respond and shed light on the fact that it is Democrats who are making police officers retire by attacking law enforcement, but Wallace was quick to cut him off.
“Let me finish, and I promise I will give you a chance to answer. The President is saying cities and states can use this money to hire more police officers, invest in new technologies and develop summer job training and recreation programs for young people. Respectfully, I’ve heard your point about the last year, but you and every other Republican voted against this $350 billion,” Wallace added.
This supposed “money to hire more police officers” was in no way earmarked explicitly for police or law enforcement of any type. Instead, it was going to be pumped into blue states who were crying that they suffered budget shortfalls because of extended COVID lockdowns and their failed economic policies.
Congressman Banks didn’t answer Wallace’s ridiculous accusations and instead continued to focus on the real problem, which is Democrats’ failure to rein in the ‘Squad’ that’s driving the agenda in their Party.
Even with many Democrats quietly admitting there’s been a rampant surge in crime, Ilhan Omar and the rest of the ‘Squad’ continue to viciously attack police and the work they do to protect communities.
It couldn’t be clearer which party doesn’t support law enforcement, and the Left sees the writing on the wall that their Defund the Police message hasn’t resonated with a broad majority of voters.
They’re trying to flip the talking points and pin it on Republicans.
And Fox News’ resident Lefty couldn’t be happier to push these liberal lies and help Democrats gaslight the American public.
