“We’ll Keep Asking Every Week” Chris Wallace Says Biden Turned Down Interview

Chris Wallace announced the Biden campaign turned down his request for an interview.


Per Forbes, Fox News host Chris Wallace said Sunday that presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s team told him the former vice president is “not available” for an interview amid criticism from conservatives and reporters that the former vice president avoids press scrutiny.


Wallace conducted a much-heralded interview with President Trump last week in which he frequently fact-checked him and cornered him into making several shocking declarations–such as that he wouldn’t commit to accepting the election results in November.

“Let Biden sit through an interview like this, he’ll be on the ground crying for mommy. He’ll say, ‘Mommy, mommy, please take me home,’” Trump taunted in the interview.

Wallace later told colleague Bret Baier, “The fact is, the president is out there. He’s out there in this broiling heat with me for an hour, he took all the questions. You can like his answers or dislike them but he had answers and Joe Biden hasn’t faced that kind of scrutiny, hasn’t faced that kind of exposure.”

Wallace said on Fox News Sunday that he requested an interview with Biden this week, but that the former vice president’s team told Wallace he’s “not available.”

“We’ll keep asking every week,” Wallace declared before signing off.

The revelation comes amid scrutiny from the media and Republicans that Biden frequently dodges taking press questions as part of a cautious and opaque campaign that avoids media attention in favor of letting the president gaffe.
