“Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace on Wednesday gushed over President Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day address, calling it the best inaugural speech he has ever heard.
“I thought it was a great speech. I’ve been listening to these inaugural addresses since 1961. John F. Kennedy, ‘Ask not.’ I thought this was the best inaugural address I have ever heard. Obviously, a lot of this event today, a lot of the president’s speech was colored by the emotion of the fact that exactly two weeks ago, 14 days ago, there was a mob of thugs, of insurrectionists, of domestic terrorists, on the inaugural stand. Joe Biden was saying that democracy prevailed,” the Fox host explained. “We were able to get through that. He was talking about how we need to get through that in the future if we are going to be a united country.”
“He talked about white supremacy, domestic terrorism. He said, We must confront it. We will defeat it. My whole soul is in this, uniting our people.’ I think it was less an inaugural address and more part sermon, part pep talk, talking directly to the American people, saying, ‘Hear me out. We have a right to dissent peacefully, but our disagreement must not lead to disunion.’ It was a call to our better angels, 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,” Wallace recounted.
