Donald Trump went up against a stacked deck in the first presidential debate.
Joe Biden got a big boost from the moderator, but still lost on the issues.
And one Fox News host showed his true colors with a disgraceful debate performance.
Fox News host Chris Wallace let his anti-Trump bias shine through in his wretched showing as debate moderator.
Wallace persistently rescued Biden when he was flailing, and grilled Trump with follow-up questions while letting lies from Biden slip past.
At one point during the debacle, Wallace was laughing along with Biden.
Trump recognized early on it was going to be a two-on-one fight and quipped, “I guess I’m debating you, not him. But that’s okay.”
Wallace was excoriated by people from the left and right for his failure to control the exchanges and for not allowing Biden to collapse in on himself.
Chris Wallace is making very clear that his goal tonight is to run interference for Joe Biden. If he wants to be a deranged NeverTrumper, that’s his prerogative, but Wallace is doing everything in his power to tilt the election toward his preferred candidate. Everyone can see it.

Sadly, this was no surprise.
Wallace recently had a contentious interview with Trump on Fox News, then followed up with a softball media hit with Biden.
One of the low points came when Wallace let Biden off the hook on whether or not he would pack the Supreme Court.
Court-packing is so radical, even Ruth Bader Ginsburg was against the practice.
Franklin Roosevelt suffered politically simply for threatening the maneuver.
However, Democrats have openly talked about packing the court since Trump has been allowed to nominate three Supreme Court justices.
Wallace also didn’t press Biden when he flip-flopped on the insane Green New Deal within a matter of seconds.
Biden said the Green New Deal was a great plan that would create jobs, then said he didn’t support it, which was a lie.
Biden’s website shows that he endorses the multi-trillion-dollar Green New Deal monstrosity.
Meanwhile, Wallace badgered Trump repeatedly on the environment.
But perhaps the low point in the debate was when Wallace characterized critical race theory as “racial sensitivity training,” which is preposterous.
Chris Wallace calling critical race theory “racial sensitivity training” is totally ignorant of what’s being taught. It is racist and anti-American. Appalling.

Critical race theory is fundamentally rooted in anti-American Marxism.
The idea is to look at disparities between racial groups and chalk up any differences to systemic racism.
The goal of such is to undermine free markets and America herself.
That has nothing to do with racial sensitivity training, but Wallace wasn’t there to discern the truth; he was there to help Joe Biden cross the finish line.
