He gave Biden incredible leeway.
The Donald Trump campaign has indicated that ‘neutral’ moderator Chris Wallace interrupted President Trump a whopping 76 times during Tuesday’s debate. Wallace, who is known for harboring liberal sympathies, was widely criticized by conservatives for his partiality in moderating the contest.
It appears that Biden actually spent more time talking during the debate than Trump did, despite Wallace consistently maintaining that Trump was breaking the rules.
Wallace continually invoked the rules that allot two minutes for each answer to each candidate, but declined to interrupt Biden when he violated them. He flouted neutrality most during the ‘open discussion’ segments, waiting for a moment when Biden appeared flustered or challenged by the President to change the subject.
Wallace conveniently changed the subject when Trump pressed Biden to identify any law enforcement union that endorsed him.

Biden can't name a single one and says he doesn't have time to talk about it

Wallace also provided the same convenient handicap when Biden described the terrorist group ANTIFA as an ‘idea.’

Biden assailed Trump with a hail of personally charged insults, calling him a ‘clown,’ a ‘racist,’ a ‘fool,’ and a ‘puppy.’ Wallace did not object to any of the character attacks utilized by Biden.
The leftist media that adores Biden lost any fake argument about Trump not acting “presidential.”
Their candidate: "You're a clown." "Just shut up, man." "You're a liar." "You're a racist." You're such a clown."
To a sitting president. 🤦🏼♀️

At this point, if Biden refuses to a contest with a moderator unaffiliated with a mainstream corporate media outlet, just do the debates without a moderator. Have the two candidates speak in an open-ended fashion without the use of a convenient handicap to cut off any content that might prove harmful to the Democrat’s electoral prospects.
