Fox host Chris Wallace explained to Stephen Colbert that, despite all the pomp surrounding Donald Trump’s “pivot” toward being more “presidential,” the Fox host really doesn’t think the GOP frontrunner is capable of such a shift.
Speaking on the Late Show Tuesday night, Wallace said he didn’t think Trump’s bombastic persona was an “act” at all. “Everyone has been talking about how he needs to get more presidential and be more restrained and more dignified,” he said, “and he can’t do it. That would be the act. This is Donald Trump.”
Wallace recalled a conversation in which Trump claimed that acting presidential was easy, and that he could do it at any time. “Why don’t you start?” Wallace asked him.
