Fox News Host Chris Wallace Burns GOP Chair On Trump [Video]

Chris Wallace, who has long been Fox News’ most redeeming host, has taken RNC chair Reince Priebus to task over his defense of Donald Trump and reports that he has consistently demeaned and sexually harassed women, in and out of the workplace.

Although Chris Wallace has classically toed the line for the GOP and the Fox News network, he has also been know to take on prominent members of their party and Priebus was just another one of his unlucky victims, during an interview on Fox News Sunday, according to The Huffington Post.

But many viewers that have voted for Donald Trump, have also disavowed Fox News during the infamous war of words that Trump had with Fox News host Megyn Kelly.

But the first order of business was for Chris Wallace to find the main criticism against Donald Trump and ask RNC chairmen Reince Priebus what he intends to do about it in the upcoming election. As many might already suspect, Priebus answered with a slew of responses that not only towed the party line talking points, but he messed up some and strayed from the original canned verbiage that may have been laid out for him before he went on Wallace’s show.

“All these stories that come out — and they come out every couple of weeks — people just don’t care,” Priebus told Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday. “I think people look at Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and say, ‘Who’s going to bring an earthquake to D.C.?'”

This is certainly something that someone like Chris Wallace might have expected to hear, but he was not just going to let it sit at that, even though Priebus still let the cat out of the bag about backing Donald Trump regardless of his past sins.

What Wallace said next actually shocked many viewers, most of which don’t even normally watch Fox News due to its history of biased coverage that tends to lean more conservative on all topics.

“The question is whether or not he mistreated women, whether made unwanted advances, whether he humiliated women in the workplace,” Wallace told Priebus. “I don’t understand why you say people don’t care about that.”

It also appears that Priebus attempted to go back and fix his answer to Chris Wallace, but the elephant had already been let loose. He answered Wallace’s question in a vague, not-so-certain response, then quickly shifted the attention over to Hillary Clinton and the contest between her and Donald Trump, saying, “who represents somebody who is going to bring a more efficient, accountable, effective government here in Washington?”

Chris Wallace, and many of the viewers, did not buy his answer, Wallace shifted the conversation over to recent headlines that claim Donald Trump impersonated a person that claimed to be Trump’s publicist, named John Miller. That headline also includes the voice on the phone with a reporter from The Washington Post claiming to have been “living with Marla [Maples] and having three other girlfriends” on the side, which was a clear indication that the person was trying to characterize Trump as a “ladies man.”

“Look, a story of 30 years ago and whether Donald Trump impersonated someone or not, that he denies, is really not the most important thing for us to talk about,” Priebus told Wallace.

But Chris Wallace also cited that the story told of Trump himself claiming that he was a chronic womanizer, given that he revealed to that reporter that he himself had made the phone call.

Chris Wallace also wanted to know if Trump should release his tax returns, but Priebus did not think that Americans really cared about Donald Trump’s tax returns, and he did not view that as an issue.
