Fox comentator Wallace calls Ford testimony “a disaster” for Republicans

🕐 1 min read

Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace said Thursday Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was shaping up as “a disaster” for Republicans.

Wallace and some others on Fox used breaks in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to say Ford was performing strongly in her early testimony. And they expressed frustration about the line of questioning by the prosecutor hired by Republicans to question Ford about her sexual assault accusation against Kavanaugh.

The commentators’ assessment is important because the White House says President Donald Trump, who was flying from New York to Washington as the hearing started, was watching Fox’s coverage.

Fox’s Brit Hume put it this way about Ford: “The more hesitant, the more fragile she has seemed, the more credible and powerful she seems to the audience.”
