Chris Wallace: Kamala Harris 'Qualified' Herself as 'Presidential' During Debate
Anti-Trump Fox News host claims Harris is 'a heartbeat away from the presidency'
Anti-Trump Fox News host Chris Wallace heaped praise on Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris over her performance at Wednesday night's debate with Vice President Mike Pence.
Wallace, a registered Democrat, declared Sen. Harris (D-CA) the winner of the debate.
He argued that, in his view, Harris proved she could be a “heartbeat away from the presidency.”
He also argued that she has now qualified herself as being "presidential."
According to Wallace, Joe Biden and Harris went into the debate leading and left the night with the lead as well.
“I think going into tonight, the Biden campaign had one concern, and it wasn’t whether or not Kamala Harris was going to be sufficiently likable,” he said.
“It was whether or not people were going to be able to at the end of the night to envision her as being a heartbeat away from the presidency, which she in terms of her knowledge, command of the facts, her policy, would she seem presidential?" Wallace continued.
"And I don’t think she did anything at all tonight to disqualify herself in that sense.
"So, if they came into the night leading, I think they left the night — the Biden campaign did — with the lead,” he concluded.
After moderating the first presidntial debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden, Wallace was widely accused of bias toward the Democrat nominee.
As Neon Nettle reported, Wallace faced an intense backlash following the first presidential debate after he appeared to favor Biden over Trump.
Wallace was accused of bias while moderating the debate after he repeatedly appeared to side with Biden.
At one point, President Trump argued that he felt like he was debating Wallace rather than Biden.
One of the issues that Wallace was called out for the most was how he appeared to let Biden interrupt Trump.
However, he was quick to jump in to interrupt Trump when Trump would talk over Biden.
