Chris Wallace busts Trump trying to manipulate Fox News coverage during House impeachment vote

Published

on

Fox News host Chris Wallace pointed out on Wednesday that President Donald Trump had likely tried to manipulate Fox News coverage as the House of Representatives was voting to begin an impeachment trial in the Senate.

Anchor Harris Faulkner spoke to Wallace minutes after the president held a China trade deal signing during House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) historic speech in favor of transmitting articles of impeachment to the Senate.

“Those two moments were on the screen at the same time,” Faulkner observed.

“The signing ceremony seemed to go on for an unusually long period of time,” Wallace said. “And I was wondering whether someone was — this is just in my head, I have no reason to believe it was true — [Trump] was sort of hoping he would outlast Speaker Pelosi’s speech so he could continue and maybe we [at Fox News] would switch back full screen to his signing ceremony to kind of put a full stop on what the House is doing.”

In the end, Trump was not able to “outlast” Pelosi and he did not get the “full screen” shot that he may have wanted from Fox News.

‘This president has muzzled science’: Doctor blasts Trump for ignorance over so-called ‘miracle drug’

Published

on

President Donald Trump refused to allow Dr. Anthony Fauci to answer what his opinion was about using hydroxychloroquine for coronavirus, something that hasn't been fully tested and has serious side effects. Dr. Kavita Patel explained that this is merely part of business as usual in the Trump White House.

"It couldn't be more obvious that this is an administration, this is a president that has stifled the press and in front of our very eyes muzzled science and I'm not sure -- I don't think we've even scratched the surface of understanding the depths of which this has happened, but you saw it play out on stage and unfortunately there are lives that are hanging in the balance," Dr. Patel said.
