During the “Overtime” segment of HBO’s “Real Time,” former White House official Anthony Scaramucci was put on the spot by host Bill Maher to name the Democratic candidate that Donald Trump “fears the most.”

Fox News personality Chris Wallace was harshly criticized on Tuesday for refusing to moderate President Donald Trump in the first presidential debate.

Wallace let Trump tell outrageous lies, dominate the time and did little to bring order to the event.

Here's some of what people were saying about the Fox host:
