(RepublicanNews.org) – Right-wing Fox News host Chris Wallace initially drew attention when he served as a moderator for the presidential debate in 2020. Now, he’s under attack for politically aligning himself with the far-left. The same person who once attacked the Trump administration recently shared high praise for Biden’s Press Secretary, Jen Psaki.
According to Wallace, Jen Psaki is one of the best press secretaries to ever serve in the White House.
Chris Wallace, an outlier at the right-leaning Fox network, praised Psaki's performance about President Joe Biden's claims that he had been to the border.

Mentioning his own six years serving at the White House, Wallace cited a recent debate between Psaki and Fox News reporter Peter Doocy as an example of two people at the top of their game.
The bold statement didn’t sit well with Republicans, many of whom reminisce about the days when Kayleigh McEnany was in Psaki’s position. She refused to back down to the press at virtually every conference. On the other hand, Psaki has a reputation for avoiding tough questions — especially when they relate to Biden’s performance or blunders.
Of course, conservatives believe that McEnany is a better example of an ideal press secretary. She excelled in the position, ready to take on the hard questions and attacks so many reporters hurled at the Trump administration.
But that doesn’t necessarily mean Psaki is an awful press secretary. While Republicans want her to be like her predecessor and answer those tough questions, Psaki does what she believes is best to preserve the Biden administration’s image. That’s a big part of the job.
