Chris Wallace was a terrible moderator. It wasn't just that he got steamrolled & didn't enforce the rules. It's that most of his questions flowed from the Fox News / white grievance framework. He described Biden's economic plan "big government, big spending." A complete failure.
I'm sick of reading these, well what was Wallace supposed to do, excuses. Obviously this was how Trump was going to behave! We've watched him do this for four years. Your job is to control the stage and facilitate a productive debate. Instead, it was an embarrassment.
WALLACE: "studied your plan and it includes upgrading 4mm buildings, weatherizing 2mm homes over four years, building 1.5,, energy efficient homes”…”that sounds like its goin to cost a lot of money and hurt the economy”

How does doing a ton of construction hurt the economy???
