Chris Wallace Publicly Blasts Donald Trump For ‘Most Sustained Assault On Press Freedom In U.S. History’

Donald Trump and Chris Wallace have tangled before and after Wallace’s Wednesday remarks at Washington D.C.’s Newseum, look for the relationship to deteriorate even further. Trump claimed in October that Wallace was “nothing like his father” which prompted Wallace to quip, “one of us has daddy issues and it’s not me.” But that was lightweight compared to what Wallace shared last night. The Guardian: “I believe that President Trump is engaged in the most direct sustained assault on freedom of the press in our history,” Wallace said to applause at the Newseum, a media museum in Washington, on Wednesday night. “He has done everything he can to undercut the media, to try and delegitimise us, and I think his purpose is clear: to raise doubts when we report critically about him and his administration that we can be trusted. Back in 2017, he tweeted something that said far more about him than it did about us: ‘The fake news media is not my enemy. It is the enemy of the American people.’” Wallace recalled that retired admiral Bill McRaven, a navy Seal for 37 years, had described Trump’s sentiment as maybe “the greatest threat to democracy in my lifetime” because, unlike even the Soviet Union or Islamic terrorism, it undermines the US constitution. The veteran broadcaster added:“Let’s be honest, the president’s attacks have done some damage. A Freedom Forum Institute poll, associated here with the Newseum, this year found that 29% of Americans, almost a third of all of us, think the first amendment goes too far. And 77%, three quarters, say that fake news is a serious threat to our democracy.” When Trump hears about this, he’ll lose his mind, not just because Wallace had the hubris to stand up to him, but because Fox News is apparently letting this go on. That begs the question, once again, what is Fox News up to with it’s seeming betrayal of Trump by certain journalists and pundits over there? This is getting curiouser and curiouser.

HA! Chris Wallace Says In Response To Trump Attack, ‘One Of Us Has Daddy Issues, and It’s Not Me’

Donald Trump just tweeted at Chris Wallace today. Maybe he’s hoping that Wallace will go the way of Shepard Smith. Somebody please explain to Chris Wallace of Fox, who will never be his father (and my friend), Mike Wallace, that the Phone Conversation I had with the President of Ukraine was a congenial & good one. It was only Schiff’s made up version of that conversation that was bad! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 14, 2019 Raw Story: It isn’t the first Time Trump has gone after the younger Wallace. In a 2015 debate where Trump attacked former Fox News host Megyn Kelly for “blood coming out of her wherever,” Trump also attacked Chris Wallace for not being as great as his father. “The great Mike Wallace was a friend of mine,” Trump said. “He was a tough cookie and he was great. And the son is only a tiny action of Mike, believe me.” If Trump’s comment ever stung him, Wallace is over it. “One of us has daddy issues, and it isn’t me,” he says. Trump does have Daddy issues. Right now, all he can talk about is how terrible Joe Biden and his son are. Trump claims to know all kinds of celebrities, because he’s such a hot shot himself. Does he not know that the well-adjusted sons of famous and successful fathers, the Michael Douglases and Rob Reiners of the world, are not comparing themselves to Dad, they’re being their own men? And because their fathers raised them to have confidence and forge their own path, they’re able to realize their own potential and not spend their lives enthralled to their fathers’ image and feeling inadequate — like Donald Trump? Trump’s neuroses and lack of self-awareness are getting so pronounced that even those of us who took a couple of psych classes in college can see his issues as clear as day. Pity he can’t. And just for the record, there’s no indication Mike Wallace was ever friends with Trump. He interviewed him once on “60 Minutes.” Mike Wallace interviewed thousands of people on that show, including an old landlord of mine who went to prison for Medicare fraud. Seriously. His name was Paul Zander. I guarantee you, Zander didn’t consider Mike Wallace a friend, au contraire. Wallace and his film crew showed up on the sidewalk outside Zander’s medical prosethetics shop in Westwood, while Zander, who was out on a huge bail bond, while awaiting adjudication of his case, stared out the shop window in disbelief. Things were bad enough when his two buddies from Iran, who managed to flee the country before the feds descended, left him holding the bag, I believe under the doctrine of joint and several liability, but don’t quote me. And then Mike Wallace showed up. It was not a good time. Walllace put people on the hot seat. Trump is actually lucky that Wallace deigned to waste a ten minute interview on him, he usually fried much bigger and more interesting fish. CBS News: “There are a lot of things to do,” Mr. Trump said. “You know, a fertile imagination and a fertile mind, Mike, it’s really amazing what can be thought of.” “Politics?” Wallace interjected. “No, not politics,” Mr. Trump said. “You said you could do a better […]
