Fox News host booed at Republican presidential debate
It may not be clear which candidate won the Republican presidential candidate in Iowa Thursday, but Fox News host Chris Wallace might be the obvious loser.
Wallace found himself being booed by a crowd that didn’t appreciate the relatively tough questions he posed to Newt Gingrich.
“Speaker Gingrich, one of the ways we judge a candidate is the campaign they run,” Wallace explained. “In June, your entire staff resigned along with your staff here in Iowa. They said you were undisciplined in campaigning and fundraising. Last report you were a million dollars in debt. How do you respond to people who say that your campaign has been a mess so far?”
“I wish you would put aside the gotcha questions,” Gingrich shot back as the audience booed Wallace. “I would love to see the rest of tonight’s debate asking us what we would do to lead an America whose president has failed to lead, instead of playing Mickey Mouse games.”
