Fox’s Chris Wallace did the George Stephanopolous “contraceptive” question with “white supremacy” and showed us all how the Left’s meme (white supremacy, white nationalist – both favored by the Left to describe anyone not them since Trump got elected):
“You have repeatedly criticized the vice president for not specifically calling out antifa and other extremist groups. Are you willing to condemn white supremacists and militia groups and say they need to stand down and not to add to the violence in these cities as we saw in Kenosha and in Portland?”
Critical Race Theory has now tinged the Presidental race. It’s not just about the KKK – it has been turned around to mean any one that is a Person of Pallor is automatically a White Supremacists / racist and must confess their sins even if they’ve done nothing wrong because UNCONSCIOUS BIAS!! Heads you lose and tails you lose again. It’s a loaded question that the Left has weaponized and Wallace knew it. This is the current race based version of “have you stopped beating your wife?”.
I dryly note that even as Wallace mentioned it, Biden hasn’t answer Trump’s question YET about Antifa – just some gauzy no answer answer that violence is ever right.
So in walks fellow Fox-mate of Wallace, John Roberts in continuing the meme (just like back in 2016) and kept asking WH PressSec Kayleigh McEnany about the answer.
In doing so, he ignores that Trump has addressed the question before. From his wife:
Following Roberts’ angry outburst, McEnany took to Twitter to point out that the question to Trump came from none other than his wife.
“.@johnrobertsFox I would refer you to your wife’s reporting from 21 hours ago… accurate reporting I cited in the White House Press Briefing,” McEnany wrote in her missive, sharing Phillips’ tweet.

Asked and answered and Roberts still has a Mighty Midget Mind Meltdown over it. How DARE people try to hold me accountable!
And that’s the thing I’ve learned since 2006 when we opened GraniteGrok – the Media is all about trying to hold other people accountable for stuff they think is important (and more and more, asked from a Democrat Narrative supporting position). Holding THEM accountable?
Not so much – they hate it. They’ve become too entitled and too gasbaggy full of themeselves that they, too, put their underwear on the same way the rest of us do. The basics of Who, What, Why, When, and How apply still apply to them – but many of us out here seem to remember that admonition far better than they do.
Just ask Dan Rather about typefaces.
No, journalism isn’t a High Calling like they think it is – nor does working in a network setting impress most of us any more. Get a better knowledgebase as well as a better handle on your thin skin.
So what DOES Biden actually think of Antifa and the BLM rioters? Any journalist ask yet?
Yeah, pretty much all of the “professional journalists” and it’s like the X-Files: the answer is out there somewhere so why can’t they bother to find it?
