Fox News Puts Chris Wallace in His Place after He Attacks Trump and GOP on CNN

Doomed former star host Chris Wallace has been put in his place by Fox News after he ripped into Republicans and President Donald Trump on CNN this morning.

Wallace and his fellow CNN personalities were discussing the raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home when the former Fox News host went on the offensive.

On Friday morning’s broadcast of “New Day,” host Brianna Keilar said:

“He sort of put out his new talking points.

“I think if these documents are to be released, which lays the groundwork for this being planted evidence asking, ‘well, why wouldn’t the FBI allow the inspection areas with our lawyers or others present,’ the idea being, ‘oh, we didn’t have eyeballs on what they were doing, what were they up to?’

“Do you think, Chris, Republicans who have come out so vociferously, and in some extreme language, supporting Donald Trump, talking about how this is the DOJ being weaponized against him, do you think they’re going to take this leap?” she asked Wallace.

“Well, yeah!” Wallace said.

“You know, there’s every indication that some of them will.

“You know, I mean, look at what happened yesterday, where you have this person who goes to attack, if he’d been able to get in, perhaps to kill FBI agents.

“And, you know, the thing that was, to quote Simon and Garfunkel, the Sound of Silence.

“You heard precious little condemnation from people on the right.

“I read one newsletter.

“I don’t know if it is literally true, about how few top Republican officeholders in Ohio, this took place in Cincinnati, how few of them condemned the action of Ricky Schiffer, the man who was killed by the FBI after the attack.

“So do I think that there are a number of Trump supporters who will continue to follow Donald Trump in whatever course he decides to take? Of course.”

John Berman said: “You know, attorney general, former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales was earlier and said the same thing.

“He said, ‘where are the Republicans?’

“At this morning saying, you know, no violence, saying this is wrong, saying what happened in Cincinnati was wrong.

“He, too, was stunned by the silence there.”

Wallace said: “Well, I mean, again, we’re talking about a party that is, has hit Democrats for not supporting, backing the blue, for not supporting law enforcement.

“Here we have people doing their job.

“And, you know, let’s make it clear again, this was not a raid.

“This was a very carefully-vetted search.

“They went to a judge.

“They got a search warrant. They went in.

“They apparently had notified the Secret Service at least an hour ahead of time.

“They specifically, reportedly, were concerned to do it when the former president was not on the premises, and went in and did it.

“They basically did it by the book.

“You can argue as to whether they should have done it at all, but they did it by the book.

“And the idea that this is being seen as some huge, and the word has literally been used, Gestapo tactic by the FBI is just so out of touch with the reality of what happened,” he said.

WATCH:

While Wallace was talking to a shriveling audience on the failing CNN, Fox News announced his replacement for his old show, “Fox News Sunday.”

Shannon Bream will be Wallace’s permanent replacement on the show, Slay News reported.

Fox News threw some shade at Wallace in the announcement telling the world that her ratings were better than his when he hosted the show.

Each time Bream has guest-hosted “Fox News Sunday” over the last several months, she has over-delivered the 2021 average of the show by 20%.

In January, she netted double-digit increases across the board on FNS, up 32% in total viewers (1.35 million) and 45% over the previous in the advertiser-friendly 25-54 demographic (343,000), marking the highest-rated FOX News Sunday episode of 2022.

In June, she ushered in week-to-week gains of 37% in the 25-54 demo, a 53% increase in the 18-49 demo along with 8% growth in total viewers.

Bream also notched a 10% increase in the 25-54 demo compared to the same show last year.

Wallace said when he left Fox: “I just no longer felt comfortable with the programming at Fox.

“I’m fine with opinion: conservative opinion, liberal opinion.

“But when people start to question the truth — ‘Who won the 2020 election? Was Jan. 6 an insurrection?’ — I found that unsustainable.”
