Fox’s Chris Wallace: I Thought That Was the Best Inaugural Address I’ve Ever Heard
4 years ago, Donald Trump took the stage at his inauguration. He spat out a bunch of nonsense based on white victimhood. He talked about the American carnage that had been done to his base and how he was there to fix their grievances.
Unsurprisingly, Joe Biden’s first speech as the American president was quite different. He talked about unity and the country coming together. It was a deeply religious address with Biden often addressing his Catholic faith.
His speech certainly hit all the right notes for at least on Fox News anchor. Chris Wallace called Biden’s speech the “best inaugural address he’d ever heard.
I thought it was a great speech,” he told Martha MacCallum. “I’ve been listening to these inaugural addresses since 1961, John F. Kennedy, and ‘ask not.’ I thought this was the best inaugural address I’ve ever heard. Obviously, a lot of this event today, a lot of the President’s speech was colored by the notion of the fact that 14 days ago, there was a mob of thugs, of insurrectionists, of domestic terrorists.”
Wallace then said, “and Joe Biden was saying that Democracy prevailed. We were able to get through that. And a lot was about how we need to get through that in the future, if we are going to be a united country.”
The anchor continued, “he talked about white supremacy, domestic terrorism. He said we must confront it, we will defeat it. ‘My whole soul is in this’, uniting our people. You know, I think it was less an inaugural address and more, part sermon, part pep talk.”
