President Trump in his first tweet following Tuesday’s first presidential debate accused moderator Chris Wallace of siding with his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden.
The wordless tweet simply features an image of Trump on the left opposed by Wallace and Biden together on the right, in the style of an old arcade game’s character-select screen — down to the abbreviation “VS” in the font of the “Street Fighter” series.
Throughout the chaotic first debate at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Fox News host Wallace repeatedly chastised both candidates — but particularly Trump — for interrupting him and each other.
Each candidate was guilty multiple times over of cutting off his opponent mid-sentence, including during what were supposed to be the two uninterrupted minutes to which they were entitled at the start of a new segment.
“You’re debating him [Biden], not me,” Wallace cracked at one point to Trump, who saw it a different way.
“I guess I’m debating you, not him,” replied Trump. “But that’s OK, no surprise.”
The result was a stop-and-go contest that often derailed into petty personal attacks at the expense of substantive points on policy.
