Chris Wallace has long been considered an enemy by Donald Trump. The down the middle Fox News anchor has angered the president with his willingness to call him out. And now, the entire Republican party seems to be up in arms against the long-tenured newsman.
This weekend, Trump sycophant Lara Trump appeared on Wallace’s show to discuss to current political climate in Washington. The conversation, however, did not get very far before the host brought up the Trump family’s refusal to wear masks during the first presidential debate.
Wallace, who was the moderator at the Cleveland event, said about masks, “You all took them off. Did you think, Lara, that the rules that applied to everybody else in that hall didn’t apply to you?”
Well, of course we didn’t think that!” replied Eric Trump’s wife. “I want to be very clear. Never one time did anyone from Cleveland Clinic come up and ask any member of our family to put a mask on. So that is totally false.”
An irritated Wallace countered, “Everybody in that hall had tested negative. And the fact is, the rules were everybody except for the president, the vice president and I were supposed to wear masks and it was the pool report — I’m not just making this up — the pool report says a member of the Cleveland Clinic — in fact, there’s video that exists — coming up to someone in the presidential party and saying would you like masks, and they were waved away.”
