Fox News host Chris Wallace had words of praise to say to President Joe Biden on Wednesday after he was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States.
“I thought it was a great speech,” Wallace declared at the conclusion of Biden’s address. “I’ve been listening to these inaugural addresses since 1961 — John F. Kennedy — ‘Ask not…’ I thought this was the best inaugural address I ever heard.”
Wallace noted that Biden’s speech came two weeks after Donald Trump incited an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
“It was less of an inaugural address and more part sermon, part pep talk,” Wallace continued. “It was a call to our better angels, it was a call, saying, look, we’ve got tremendous challenges — COVID, the economy, racial injustice, climate change — but there’s nothing we can’t do if we come together.”
“There’s one other thing,” he observed. “Us in the media must note. He said that there is truth and there are lies, lies that are told for power and lies that are told for profit. And I think it was a call to all of us, whether it’s us on the air, on cable or broadcast, whether it’s us in social media, on our Twitter accounts, understanding that we have to deal from facts, from the truth, to hear each other out, as he said.”
“I thought it was a great start,” Wallace added.
