Ivan Kilmeade said : ‘Donald Trump destroyed the largest debate in the history of debates by not condemning white supremacists”. He added to the defining exchange that the president declined to denounce the hate groups and violent militias who support him and instead told them to stand by.
Monday, Chris Wallace had a rough night. In a horror show of a presidential debate, he was incapable of controlling Donald Trump, and at one point he gave up totally attempting. At one point a flustered Wallace said: ‘I am going to ask a question about race.’ If Trump shows in his interview with Trump in the summer how to keep his feet to the fire, his performance as a host was a condensed version of how the media has normalized this man over the last five years and allowed him to change the rules as he likes. If Trump gained anything from his first confrontation with Joe Biden — and it is hard to believe he did — he has to thank Wallace for his nonpresentance.
Even as his “invisibility” gave Trump a leg up, the right immediately started to scapegoat Wallace for the president’s revolting act of self-sabotage. Trump’s failure was certainly not his own fault — at Fox News it was their own colleague who had to be blamed for it.
The moderator is ’- of Trump and Biden,” said Fox News host Laura Ingraham Twitter feed. Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade also joined the pile-up on Twitter that Biden was “allowed to interrupt”, while Trump wasn’t. Ingraham echoed Ingraham’s view that Wallace and Biden were rabid on the president. Kilmeade was still whining about how “rude” Biden had been on his program Wednesday morning, although he had offered up some of President Obama’s remarks.

Of course there are a couple of reasons to think of them. But they didn’t matter to many of Kilmeade’s colleagues who excused or ignored President Trump’s refusal to condemn white supremacists and cast his childish pouting and cartoonish bullying as the behavior of a racist teen.
Nevertheless, venture even a little outside of Fox, and even some Republicans considered Trump’s behavior suspicious. Trump -Stooge Rick Santorum softly conceded on CNN that his opponent “outplayed his hand” during the debate. Today the president got hurt, he said. Former Trump-affiliated Chris Christie, who helped the president prepare for the debate, admitted on ABC News that the Republican ran “too hot” Tuesday night.
