Fox News host Chris Wallace spoke out on Wednesday to when that it is “kind of sad” some Republican lawmakers are voting to object to the results of the 2020 presidential election.
Chris Wallace Attacks Republicans
“I think that the point that needs to be made is how extraordinary this is. We have never seen what we’re going to see today,” Wallace said. “People point back to 2005 when George W. Bush beat John Kerry, and a congresswoman from Ohio and Sen. Barbara Boxer of California both objected, and both sides went into their separate chambers to debate for two hours about the vote in Ohio. Which was very close and what pushed Bush over the top.”
“The difference is that John Kerry, the failing candidate then, had already conceded, and, in fact, he was very much discouraging and disavowing Barbara Boxer’s effort to hold this objection,” he added. “And in fact, when it got to the Senate, she lost by a vote of 74 to 1.”
“Now you’ve got maybe 100 Republican congressmen, more than a dozen Republican senators. You’ve got the sitting Republican president who’s going to be making a speech in a few minutes saying the election was stolen from him. We have never, ever seen anything like this.”

Wallace Doubles Down
Not stopping there, Wallace brought up other moments in American history to shame the Republican lawmakers for their behavior.
“I think it’s worth pointing out, this is usually the day when people behave in our democracy —behave well. I mean, in 1961, Richard Nixon was the failing candidate and the sitting vice president, and he had to preside over his defeat in the House of Representatives, and he did it graciously,” he said. “In 2001 when Al Gore lost to George W. Bush by 500 votes in Florida, he shut down some objections from members of the House.”

“Usually this is the point when everybody comes together,” Wallace concluded. “Losing hurts, but they sit there and say for the greater good country, and in keeping with our democracy and our Constitution, we’re going to recognize that the person who got the most electoral votes won the election. And the fact that that’s not going to happen today is kind of sad.”

It's kind of sad that a little pencil necked geek like Chrissy Wallace is supposed to be a "conservative voice". Check your ratings Fox. We aren't listening to your turncoat babbling idiots.
Just 13 days away from his inauguration and still Biden can't speak unless he reads something written for him by his puppeteers and reads it off a teleprompter. Can't wait for the day when he can no longer SEE the teleprompter. What's he going to do then? Are his nursemaids going to fit with with a hearing aid so they can remotely tell him what to say? That would be even more of a dead give away because there would be a delay between what he's listening to and what he tries to remember and repeat.
Shoes on the other foot Wally. Dems never accepted our president. How does it feel? Sucks doesn't it. Get ready for another 4 years of nothing being done.
Chris Wallace can kiss my Viet Nam veteran behind. He's nothing more than spoiled offspring of someone famous trying to ride his father's coattails much like Chelsea Clinton is trying to ride her parents'. He adds nothing to discussions except his name and liberal bias. To me he's right up there with Dan Rather as a useless dreg of society.
Well Chris, we'll NEVER accept the Biden win because this election was STOLEN and everybody knows it including the Democrats! TRUMP WON IN A LANDSLIDE. Just look at the number of Trump supporters, 250,000 of them that showed up in DC on Wednesday and there are 49 other states with just as many Trump supporters. Biden could never even dream of having that kind of support and he knows it! The conservatives are sick and tired of the Ȼŗąp the Democrats have been dishing out for four years. They treated President Trump, his family and his followers horribly, so don't expect us to treat Biden any differently. Let the investigations begin because we've got plenty of evidence on corrupt Biden, then we can move on to the IMPEACHMENT! Turn about is fair play. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
What do we expect out of a whiner other than whining. Chris Wallace is a "girly man". We have just been through one of the worst case of election fraud in America. There is no way we as American's should accept what just happened. Joe Biden could not have garnered enough votes to win the Presidency without massive cheating.
How sad was he when Democrats didn't accept Trump as President? Oh by the way, Chris you should take some fault as to what happened in D.C. today. Your constant ridicule of Trump and his supporters helped fuel the fire.
All I can do is shake my head in sadness for what my party, the Republican Party, has become. While I don't agree with a lot of what the Democratic Party tries to do, I can't agree with ANYTHING the Republican party has been doing these last four years.
no Wallace your kind of sad, wimpy
America's rebirth or death will soon occur.
Why is it sad , the Democrats didn't accept trump's win and still haven't, but I have a couple of questions for the idiot :- 1 if Biden got 80 million votes why is Washington worried that the trump supporters will turn the inauguration of biden into a maga rally ?
And 2. If Biden got 80 million votes why can't he get more than 5 thousand views when he live streams on the internet? ?
Enquiring minds would like to know!!!!
Not sure what we could compare Wallace to that would be foul, slimy, sloppy, disgusting enough that would be able to even come close to the stench and classlessness Wallace has exhibited towards President Trump! Wallace just needs to disappear – Cry me a river D o u c h bag Wallace!!!
BIDEN DID NOT WIN…big time Chris
You hit the nail on the head. Yes, only the Democrats, lefties and disgruntled blacks can get away with it, but if a Republican would do what they did, we'd be sitting behind bars. Remember, we have a double standard justice system in this country and it's going to get worse once Biden and Harris are inaugurated. The Democrats can do whatever they want and never be prosecuted and a prime example is HILLARY CLINTON! If anybody else had done what she did, they'd be sitting behind bars today. Their motto is: RULES FOR THEE BUT NOT FOR ME.
A question instead of a reply: What makes us think that the "protesters" that breached the Capitol today were Trump supporters???? Each time in the past four years (particularly the past two) when there has been trouble (violence/vandalism) at any Trump rally or peaceful demonstration is when either BLM or Antifa has infiltrated the group! So – let's assume they (agitators) were at the back of the Trump demonstration earlier today- and when he finished and told them to go the the capitol – everyone turned to go WHICH people would almost undoubtedly have been in the lead? Which people were at the head of the crowd that climbed the Capitol steps and breached the walls, broke windows and tried to break down doors??? UNLESS there is a thorough investigation by the police, FBI and DOJ of any and all of those taken into custody we will never know!!! I for one am very curious!!!!!
So does that mean that for the next 4 years the Republicans can go round burning looting and Murdering people on the street and getting away with it !!!
Or Is it only the Democrats ,lefties,and disgruntled coloured people who can get away Scott free ???
The Democrats/liberals never accepted President Trump's win in four years, what is this crazy man talking about now? They burned, looted, killed people, and destroyed cities and property for four years and the Democrats/liberals never said a word or tried to stop their wild behavior in any way! Wallace is a such a puke! So disgusting and vile!
It's that bad even his own military don't trust him!!!
Not to mention China, which is even worse.
Granted that was beyond low for him to do… But.. There's an even sicker one… He made his daughter Ashley take showers with him when she was an adolescent… This guy is a pervert…no doubt about it!
But don't bring the FBI or CIA or NSA into it because they're already bought and paid for by the Democrats and biden
Yes, let the investigations begin immediately into Biden and his worthless son Hunter over their dealings with the Ukraine and China! What kind of real man sleeps with is dead brother's wife? No integrity, no character, no morals; simply outright trash, in my opinion!
So Chris, do you to say that Republicans should accept Biden's win even though DemocRATs never accepted Trump's win over Hillary. What comes around goes around and the GOP needs to start impeachment proceedings on Jan 21, 2121 because of Biden's dealings with the Ukraine.
Sissy Wallace you had cornered our President Trump in the first debate and your Joe Biden is a illegitimate Dumb Jerk. He will never be USA PRESIDENT PERIOD MAN CAN’T THINK OR SPEAK ON HIS OWN SAD BUT TRUE.
Wallace, you are living proof that the saying "like father, like son" is totally fabricated. The election was stolen. BIDEN DID NOT WIN!!!! After all we have been through with the President, fake Russia Hoax, Mueller Investigation, investigation of his campaign, and the phoney impeachment, we are all more than just a little pissed the Democrat/Socialists stole the election away from our President. It is so obvious and POTUS cannot get a break and present his evidence, which is overwhelming. air.
Like father like son…
President Trump DID NOT LOSE – The election was stolen from him because of the mail in ballots, the cheating, the lying, because of Nasty Pelosi, Chuckles Schlumber, Maxi Pad Waters….All of those who believe that socialism is the way of life, remember that when you can't find a roll of toilet paper to wipe your butt with!!!
Chris had been a petulant Never-Trumper for some time now. However, Trump lost and he's still whiney? Sounds like the drop in FOX ratings has been "contact traced" to Chrissie. Adios!
I wouldn't mind losing so much if I thought the election was fair.
That's because the courts won't even look at the evidence they have. There was plenty of fraud committed. How can you have 250,000 votes when there are only 150,000 voters registered? Wouldn't you call that a little suspicious? I CALL IT FRAUD! THIS ELECTION WAS FIXED!
Just to let you know, David Fields, I have responded to your message, it's just that PI for some reason has flagged it and it is waiting for the Principle to give it a pass to post it as some Dems may be offended by some of my words like "maybe if you didn't only watch liberal stations", etc., I'm not sure why they flagged it as I wasn't rude, I would not cuss nor be disrespectful to you, but, I will give you my response to your response to me. There's plenty of proof of cheating and stealing and a lot of lying that took place during the past election and I pointed that out in my response…..you know how sometimes PI has a problem with the 1st Amendment….freedom of speech – they do not seem to like it very much. If they do not approve that post I promise you I will write back with more proof then I included in my first response. Come on PI, I thought for sure 2021 was going to be a better year and y'all would respect my 1st Amendment right – I guess only the Dems and PI are the only ones who get to express their freedom of speech?????
I just gave one example of the proof that was found above. There is plenty of proof but the courts refuse to even look at it. They're afraid of the Democrats and fear for their lives and the lives of their families if they would overturn the election.
We know how vicious the Democrats can be. They have been instilling fear in all of us over this past year.
No David, the fact that you can't see the writing on the wall or believe what is right in front of you is proof that you want to believe what you want to believe, which is fine. According to your posts, you're embarrassed by "your" party? Maybe if you paid attention to the news, listen to something besides CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC and the other liberal stations you may see that not only has President Trump improved the life of most Americans, that he has improved your life too. BTW, I don't watch Fox News. Did you enjoy the tax cut??? Have you been enjoying the Stimulus Checks, even though the Dems put so much pork in there to help OTHER COUNTRIES, more than the Dems wanted to help Americans…did you enjoy your extra money?? Did you cash the checks? Did you send them back to the Government or do you make so much money that you didn't qualify for a "stimulus check??" In the past years mail in ballots were only allowed for those who were out of the country or were ill and couldn't make it to the polls, but this time Pelosi insisted on mail in ballots because she knew they could and would cheat that way. Wake up and smell the coffee. Since you haven't been a Republican for a while, why are you sad? Were you embarrassed the 4-years that the Dems, the MSM, George Soros, Bloomberg and others harassed President Trump, how they attacked our First Lady and how the Dems went after Barron Trump? Again, you're joking??
None of that is relevant to the question. The fact that you didn't answer the question only suggests there is NO proof of the allegations.
And H e l l a r y Clinton has never told a lie in her life!!!! Maxine Waters said she lives in the district that she represents so we MUST believe her. George Soros has never interfered in any political elections nor paid for any of the riots and violent protests that have taken place at Trump rally's. Last but not least, Bill Clinton never had s e x with Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office in the White House!!!
Where's the proof he cheated? So far, nothing presented in court was proof of malfeasance; that's why it kept getting thrown out.
And when it does he'll still not be my president ( I personally don't like cheaters)
When Hel* Freezes over treason Joe
will be Accepted.
Shut up Chrissie, you’re the first one to fall
