“Here’s what happened. You know, we began the first segment on the Supreme Court. They each got their two minutes, and they both obeyed in that particular case. And then, Biden started to answer a question and the president started interrupting him,” Wallace said.
Wallace said his initial reaction was, “this is great” because debates too often become “parallel news conferences.”
“So when the president started engaging with Biden, I thought, ‘we’re going to have a real debate here.’ It became clearer and clearer over time that this was something different and that the president was determined to try to butt in and throw Joe Biden off,” Wallace continued, citing a Fox analysis asserting that Trump interrupted Biden and Wallace 145 times.
