By Townhall. “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace is in disbelief over the Biden campaign’s decision not to have any top officials appear on the Sunday talk shows the weekend before the Democratic National Convention. The veteran journalist called it “the damnedest thing [he’s] ever seen” in a Friday interview with Guy Benson on Fox News Radio.
“So I’ve been doing Sunday shows with conventions. I started on Meet the Press in 1988. I’ve been doing it on and off. For what? What is that? Thirty-two years,” Wallace said. “And it always happens that the Sunday before the convention, the campaign puts out top officials to preview the convention and to say this is what we’re gonna try to get accomplished.”
The Democratic National Convention, which will be virtual this year, is set to kick off next week, with vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris set to take the virtual stage on Wednesday and Biden slated sometime Thursday evening. Both will make their remarks from Delaware without a crowd, consistent with the Biden campaign’s basement strategy where the Democratic candidate largely refrains from the campaign trail and limits his exposure to the press. Friday marked the third day in a row that Biden and Harris have refused to take questions from the media.
Wallace told Benson that “Fox News Sunday” had assumed all week long that a top official from the Biden camp would make an appearance on the program. But Wallace was shocked to learn that no one from the Biden campaign was willing to appear.
“And at first I thought, well, maybe it’s because it’s Fox News and they’re boycotting us,” Wallace said. “No, they’re not putting anybody out on any of the Sunday shows.” (Read more from “Fox News Host Is Shocked the Biden Campaign Isn’t Doing This Before the Convention” HERE)
Tensions Linger Between Biden and Obama Camps Throughout 2020 Primary Campaign: Report
By Fox News. Despite the best-friend bond Joe Biden touts with former President Obama, tensions have lingered between the two statesmen over their vastly different governing styles, according to a Politico report.
To start, a number of anonymously sourced quotes from Obama leaked out throughout the 2020 Biden campaign where the former president allegedly expressed doubts about his former running mates’ fitness for office.
“Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f–k things up,” one Democrat who spoke to the former president recalled him saying.
When lamenting his own diminishing relationship with the current Democratic electorate, particularly in Iowa, Obama reportedly told one 2020 candidate: “And you know who really doesn’t have it? Joe Biden.”
Some Biden aides pointed out that, when Obama’s endorsement of Biden in 2020 finally did arrive, it didn’t have nearly the energy of his endorsement of Hillary Clinton. (Read more from “Tensions Linger Between Biden and Obama Camps Throughout 2020 Primary Campaign: Report” HERE)
