[WATCH] Chris Wallace: ‘You guys look silly’: Referring To Tulsa Rally

Fox News’ Chris Wallace did not hold back when talking to Trump spokeswoman, Mercedes Schlapp on Sunday.  Wallace pointed out the fact that barely more than 6,200 people attended Trump’s Tulsa rally, even though Trump had claimed one million people had requested tickets. Wallace said, “We all saw the pictures last night. The arena was no more than two-thirds full. And the outdoor rally was canceled because there was no overflow crowd. What happened?”

Schlapp said, “The key here is to understand there were factors involved, they were concerned about the protesters who were coming in.” This answer did not satisfy Wallace as he continued to push Schlapp.

Wallace said, “He talks about how he can fill an arena. And he didn’t fill an arena last night. You guys were so far off that you had planned an outdoor rally and there wasn’t an overflow crowd.” He added, “Protesters did not stop people from coming to that rally. The fact is, people did not show up.”

Schlapp did not see things the same way and went on to attack Joe Biden for having virtual town halls. Chris Wallace was not going to be distracted. He said, “Mercedes, please don’t filibuster. Frankly, it makes you guys look silly when you deny the reality of what happened.”

Schlapp responded, “I don’t know why you are saying that.”

Wallace replied, “There are empty seats there. At least a third, if not half of the rally was empty. You can’t deny it.”

Schlapp continued to go after Biden. she said, “Joe Biden has been a failed politician that has done nothing but support failed institutions. This is in contrast with President Trump who has a strong record and is rebuilding this economy.”

Wallace replied, “Mercedes, you’re shifting to a campaign speech, which has nothing to do with the attendance of the rally.”
