Trump supporters seem to have finally decided to engage in ‘cancel culture’ on Twitter after Chris Wallace, a host on the traditionally pro-Republican Fox News network, praised the speech by the Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
“I thought [Biden’s speech] was enormously effective,” Wallace said on Thursday night, after Biden’s address wrapped up the last day of the Democratic convention in Milwaukee. In Wallace’s opinion, Biden effectively countered President Donald Trump’s criticism that he was “mentally shot” and a “captive” of the left wing of the Democratic Party.
“And yes, Biden was reading from the teleprompter and a prepared speech but I thought that he blew a hole, a big hole in the characterization,” Wallace said.
His words quickly made rounds online and even ended as posts in various “conservatives for Biden” communities.

Trump Republicans, on the other hand, seemed to have enjoyed the characterization much less, immediately branding Wallace a “never Trumper” and a “clown.”
Chris Wallace is a never Trumper disguised as a Fox journalist. He’s just happy as a clam that Biden could deliver a pre-recorded speech instead of actually sitting down with him for an interview like Trump did. He will let Biden slide on the merits of that “effective” speech.
Despite having a show on the Republican-leaning network, Wallace has admitted for years to being a registered Democrat, though he said he had voted for candidates from both major US parties.
Last month, Wallace sat down for a now-famous interview with Trump, asking the president a series of tough and adversarial questions. Trump has subsequently denounced Fox coverage in Wallace’s time slot as “unwatchable” and “worse than fake news CNN.”
