Les Nessman: “It’s All Trump’s Fault”

2020 October 1
by bc3b

This should come as a surprise to no one who has been paying attention, but Les Nessman (aka Chris Wallace) is attempting to place the blame for Tuesday night’s debate debacle at the feet of Donald Trump.

Fox News host Chris Wallace on Thursday blamed President Donald Trump for what he admitted was an “awful” debate.

In his first TV appearance following Tuesday night’s debate, Wallace noted that Trump had interrupted either Democrat Joe Biden or himself 145 times.

“He bears the primary responsibility for what happened on Tuesday,” Wallace said. “At a certain point, 45 minutes in, I called a halt to the debate for a moment and said this really isn’t serving America and please stop the interruptions.”

Wallace complained that his team had spent “hundreds” of hours preparing for the debate only to have it spoiled by the president.

“I was really hoping for the debate that America wanted to see, which was a serious exchange of views,” he recalled. “I felt like I had gotten together all of the ingredients. I had baked this beautiful, delicious cake, and then, frankly, the president put his foot in it.”

“I guess I thought originally that the president was going to engage in a debate with Biden and let Biden answer,” Wallace added. “That was a misapprehension. Then I thought maybe the president is going to do this in the first segment — try to rattle Biden. When that didn’t work, I think he would have been well advised to pull back and let Biden talk more.”

“And then 45 minutes in, I realized what a total mess and disservice this was,” the Fox News host said. “Do I wish I had stepped in earlier? Yes. But, as I say, hindsight is 20-20.”

So, it’s Donald Trump’s fault that that Nessman lost control of the debate five minutes into the debate and he tired of Biden’s lies and Nessman tossing Biden softballs while questions for Trump were “gotchas.”

It’s time for conservatives to totally bail on FNC, even Tucker. If he has an interesting show, catch it on youtube.

And the next debate moderator will be a man who started his career as an intern for Senator Joe Biden and has been a long-time Trump critic.

    Airline layoffs coming:


    COVID-19 will have many lasting effects. Airlines, hotels, malls and commercial properties will be among the worst hit. Companies have discovered how much can be handled via video conferencing rather than airfare, far rentals, hotel nights and meals in expensive restaurants.

    Another case of SDNY prosecutor resigns, not that seems to matter as that entire office is infected to the core, as are most doj offices for that matter.

    SDNY AUSA Andrew Krause resigns (guess he already did the damage he wanted with we build the wall case).

    According to the letter, Mr. Krause’s replacement is Lucas Issacharoff. Mr. Issacharoff is married to Maureen Comey, former FBI Director James Comey’s daughter. Swapping one out for another so the first doesn’t have to answer any IG questions post employment as too origins I imagine.

    “COVID-19 will have many lasting effects. Airlines, hotels, malls and commercial properties will be among the worst hit.”

    COVID was the trigger. The early airline losses can be attributed to that. But airlines may take 10yrs to recover if not longer:

    * The front cabin was the domain of the business traveler. They are empty.
    * Coach that mostly covers the ops cost of the flight are nearly empty. My wife flew a Lufthansa 787 Detroit to DME Moscow. Besides herself there was about 50 people on the plane. Some variants can seat 300 passengers.
    * Russia has curtailed travel from France, Germany, Italy & Spain again.
    * Domestic flight closures are happening all the time.

    Want to see how bad? — https://www.tsa.gov/coronavirus/passenger-throughput — Since late March there has not been a single flight interval that reached a million passengers.

    Here is where the long term comes in. CEOs are looking at their travel budgets and realize all that money for flights, hotels, rental cars, etc are flowing to the bottom line. Tools like Zoom, Meet, Skype cost practically nothing in comparison. The classic business traveler maybe dead. There are already crude 3D virtual avatar based conferences going on. The tech in that space will get better.

    Hopefully this was caught early enough and treatment was started before symptoms even appeared. If so, the prospects are pretty good that Trump and Melania may get through this asymptomatically and the worse part will be the two weeks in quarantine.

    In any case, be prepared for a massive tweet storm from Trump over the next few weeks as I’m certain he’ll be pacing his quarters in the White House like a caged lion.

    Now, begins the war of conspiracy theories that Trump was given the China flu by the Biden’s henchmen at the debate verses tream Trump tried to infect Biden, but it backfired. Sheesh, what a shitshow.

  20. 2020 October 2 1:17 am

    21 – Neither are symptomatic as of ~midnight.
    I don’t think Hicks was either beyond a elevated temp as of yesterday.

    The MSP hysteria is going to be epic through at least early next week, all sorts of insanity will be said and floated, calls for him to resign if he even gets a cough or fever etc, new level of stupid will be achieved. 🙂

    TBH I’m not looking forward to non-stop tweet storms, they often lack context for what’s being discussed for the non-engaged. I so want him to just walk into the press room and do a presser tomorrow, only it’s just the FL reading questions she selects. Then the usual turds will be afraid of the room for a week. 🙂

    There is actually an opportunity for someone relatively young (chanel rion from OAN comes to mind) and unafraid to offer themselves up to do daily interviews or something with potus in the same room so long as he’s feeling well.

    bc3b, I think the Trump Presidential campaign WAS deliberately targeted and infected.

    it can NEVER be proven, of course. But if you wanted to disable if not destroy his campaign then infecting Hope Hicks and one or two others would absolutely insure that the virus spread throughout.

    remember, the Left considers ANYTHING you do to Trump, his family, and ANYONE who opposes them is fair game.

    “I hear Cuomo is calling for Trump to be sent to a nursing home.”

    Seriously, with no logic behind it at all, Senate Dems are calling for a delay on the ACB hearings until PDJT’s quarantine ends.

    In the end, if this is asymptomatic or mild, it will be an overall boost for him I think.

    As far as Joe’s wires, the excuse I’ve read is that it is a rosary for the “good” son Beau.
    Why would there be a stiff thin piece sticking out from round rosary beads? It’s the end of the Cross that’s part of the rosary.

    The Left is a cesspool of HATE, and it isn’t hate directed at people who do really hateful things like Antifa and BLM do on a regular basis, it’s HATE against anyone who opposes any of their positions in any way. Since Trump is the antithesis of every Leftist wet-dream, I can actually see them HATING Trump enough to wish him to die.

    But their HATE extends to Trump’s family, and frankly to EVERYONE who opposes them.

    They want EVERYONE who opposes any of their ideas to be:
    – Forced to bend to their will (i,e., enslaved)
    – Re-educated
    – Imprisoned
    – Executed (or die in some hopefully painful way)

    The link only talks about the hypocrisy of their “Love Trumps Hate” slogan as it applies to Trump. But it applies equally to their feelings about everyone who doesn’t think like them

    Well if you hide in your basement all day, the chances of getting CoVid fall drastically. (eg Biden) The fact that Trump got the virus tells me the man has guts. He has been attending rallies, pressing the flesh, meeting all sorts of individuals on and off the campaign trail. Hence his chances of getting the Kung Flu increase.

    In times past we would have called such people heroes for their willingness to face the danger for the public good.
