Chris Wallace ripped Trump supporters with this one word
On Wednesday, Congress met in a joint session of Congress to certify the results of the Electoral College.
The day quickly turned into chaos.
But before that Chris Wallace ripped Trump supporters with this one word.
On Fox News anti-Trump anchor Chris Wallace took Trump supporters in Congress to task for objecting to the results of the Electoral College.
Even though it is constitutional for members of Congress to object to the results, Wallace claimed what would take place is extraordinary even though Wallace noted the Democrats objected to the elections of two Republican Presidents.
“I think that the point that needs to be made is how extraordinary this is. We have never seen what we’re going to see today. People point back to 2005 when George W. Bush beat John Kerry, and a congresswoman from Ohio and Sen. Barbara Boxer of California both objected, and both sides went into their separate chambers to debate for two hours about the vote in Ohio. Which was very close and what pushed Bush over the top. The difference is that John Kerry, the failing candidate then, had already conceded, and, in fact, he was very much discouraging and disavowing Barbara Boxer’s effort to hold this objection. And in fact, when it got to the Senate, she lost by a vote of 74 to 1,” Wallace began.
Wallace ripped the Republicans who refused to accept Biden’s win as “sad.”
“Usually this is the point when everybody comes together. Losing hurts, but they sit there and say for the greater good country, and in keeping with our democracy and our Constitution, we’re going to recognize that the person who got the most electoral votes won the election. And the fact that that’s not going to happen today is kind of sad,” Wallace concluded.
Wallace’s remarks came before protestors stormed the Capitol and interrupted the joint session and forced lawmakers to evacuate the building.
Congress resumed certifying the Electoral College results as soon as the Capitol was cleared.
And in the end, Congress affirmed Biden’s win shortly before 4am Thursday morning.
