Fox’s Chris Wallace lauds Michelle Obama convention speech: ‘Really flayed, sliced and diced Donald Trump’

Veteran Fox News anchor Chris Wallace praised former first lady Michelle Obama’s virtual speech at the Democratic National Convention late Monday, with the “Fox News Sunday” host stating that she “really flayed, sliced and diced” President Trump.

“It was a heck of a contribution,” Wallace said. “She really flayed, sliced and diced Donald Trump, talking about the chaos and confusion and lack of empathy, especially coming from this president and this White House, spoke more about the deficits of Donald Trump than the pluses of Joe Biden, but did talk about especially, not so much policies, but especially his empathy and what he has been through and his care for average Americans.”

“This was a very effective speech,” Wallace added.

Wallace’s perspective came during the network’s live coverage of the first night of the convention, which also included speeches from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R).

Fox News anchor and host Dana Perino also lauded Obama for her authenticity and ability to connect with voters.

“You got the sense when you talk about authenticity, she has it in spades. She has that voice, she has clarity, and she knows what she is out there wanting to do,” Perino, who served as President George W. Bush’s press secretary, said. “She was trying to get everybody to really focus and then she had a call to action: Ask for your ballot tonight.”

“I think that the DNC, if they look over the course of the night, the first virtual convention of our history, I think they would say that Michelle Obama stuck the landing,” she added.

Democratic convention speakers for Tuesday night include Jill Biden, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and former President Clinton, among others. Former Vice President Joe Biden is expected to accept the party’s presidential nomination on Thursday evening.
