The Commission on Presidential Debates announced Chris Wallace from Fox News would moderate the first debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden. It will take place on September 29.

Wallace will finally get to interview Biden. He mentioned in July how he has been trying to get the candidate on his show, but the campaign says Biden is not available.

This could spell disaster for Biden. The first debate is the most-watched, and we all know Wallace will not hold back.

Wallace performed a tough interview with Trump in July. It was so tough that Trump asked Wallace if Biden could handle a similar interview:

The president told the Fox News host that Biden would be “crying for mommy” if forced to answer the same kinds of questions from Wallace.

“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,’” the president said.

“Well, we’ve asked him for an interview, sir,” Wallace replied.

“He can’t do an interview. He’s incompetent,” Trump said in response.

That’s when Wallace said his show contacted Biden’s campaign about an interview. The campaign said he was not available.

Wallace vowed to ask every week about Biden’s availability.

Biden’s campaign responded to Trump’s criticism but used it as a way to bash the president. The campaign did not “address the issue of Biden making his own appearance on the program.”

The following day, Wallace told his colleague Bret Baier that Biden should make himself available:

“The fact is, the president is out there. He’s out there in this broiling heat with me for an hour, took all the questions,” he said in an appearance on Baier’s program last Monday, “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.”

“You’ve got to feel at some point he’s going to come out from the basement. He’s going to have to be more exposed and take questions just as tough as the ones I asked this president.”

If Wallace plays it fair, which I believe he will, he will grill Biden.
