Two days in row that a Fox host has done this:
“Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace in a new interview shut down President Trump’s claim that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is in favor of defunding the police. The president blamed a recent rise in violence on Democratic leadership, saying urban centers are “stupidly run.”
When Wallace noted that Democrats have led cities for decades, Trump suggested the increase in killings was because of the defund the police movement. “It’s gotten totally out of control and it’s really because they want to defund the police, and Biden wants to defund the police,” Trump said.
“Sir, he does not,” Wallace interjected. “Oh really? It says abolish, it says defund. Let’s go. Get me the charter, please,” Trump said, turning to staff off camera.
Watch the clip. As usual, it looks like Trump has no idea what’s in the Biden/Sanders pact and is relying on what his sycophants have told him.
Oh Lord, Trump gets momentarily drawn out of the toady/yes-man bubble by Fox News of all places and lord it got weird. pic.twitter.com/1XiBCosMmH
