After moderating the first presidential debate of 2020, Chris Wallace has come under fire for his treatment of two elders.
A spokesperson from the Department of Human Services released this statement, sparking social media support:
“There is absolutely no reason for Mr. Wallace to have two of our nation’s most vulnerable adults fighting on stage. We need to protect our elders when they can’t protect themselves”
Many users on Twitter were equally as frustrated.
“Debate or not, watching that made me feel like an accomplice to Chris Wallace’s cruel and inhumane experiment.”
“What were they even doing up there? Did they know what was going on? Where were their nurses?”
Given that this was the first debate, Chris Wallace may still have a chance to clarify exactly what he was doing that evening and why it shouldn’t be classified as a war crime.
