Fox News Viewers Rage at Chris Wallace For Confrontational Stephen Miller Interview: ‘Move to CNN!’
After Fox News host Chris Wallace interrogated White House aide Stephen Miller on President Donald Trump’s shutdown yesterday, the network’s conservative audience was not pleased with the interview, as hundreds of them took to Twitter to slam the anchor.
During the contentious Fox News Sunday segment, Wallace repeatedly pressed Miller on the constitutionally and presidential precedent for issuing a national emergency to fund a border wall. When Miller refused to give straight answers, even dodging them by flipping the questioning on Wallace, the anchor did not respond kindly.
“You know, the joy of this is I get to ask you questions, you don’t get to ask me,” Wallace said. “Answer my question. Can you name one case where a president has asked Congress for money, Congress has refused, and the president has then invoked national powers to get the money anyway?”
Miller began another meandering answer, saying, “Well this current situation…,” before Wallace cut him off and demanded, “Just yes or no, sir.”
“So the answer is no, there hasn’t been a single case like this,” the host added.
Based on the response on Twitter, the network’s audience was not pleased with the confrontational interview. Many of these critics accused Wallace of being Fox News’s resident liberal; others tied him to the network’s other conservative bête noire Shepard Smith and threatened to boycott the network over their “liberal talking points.”
Check out a few of the criticisms below:
Stephen Miller is a bad ass
& I’m so glad he is on our side.
President @realDonaldTrump for hiring him.

Shame on Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday citing a liberal talking point which cherry-picked the year 2000 to attempt to deceive about border crossing instead of using year over year CBP stats showing the huge increase. Chris joins Shep Smith in getting news from left-wing tp

Chris Wallace only has a job because he is the liberal “balance” for Fox news. #ChrisWallace

@FoxNewsSunday is the absolute worst Sunday program due to Chris Wallace and his blatant liberal bias. He needs to pack up and move to CNN and take that idiot Shep Smith and Juan Williams with him. The 3 combined don’t have an IQ over 75!

You know, the joy of this is I get to ask you questions,” Wallace said. “You don’t get to ask me.”
