Awful. Chris Wallace to Michele Bachmann: “Are You a Flake?” (Video) …Update: Wallace Apologizes

FOX News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked conservative presidential candidate Michele Bachmann today,
“Are you a flake?… “
Really, Chris?

This was a shameful attack.

So pointing out that there are anti-American members of Congress proves you’re a flake?
Wallace owes Michele Bachmann an apology.

Just wondering… When was the last time a reporter asked Barack Obama if he was a flake for trying to spend his way out of a recession?

Ed Morrissey has more thoughts on the real flake in the race.

UPDATE: Chris Wallace reportedly apologized for calling Michele Bachmann a flake.
Here’s video of Wallace apologizing after the show.

    Chris will never fill his father’s shoes (Mike Wallace-60 Minutes.) But he tries with stupid questions like this. I didn’t see the full interview but I’m sure Bachmann handled herself well. By asking that question Chris just got himself an invite to all the ‘right’ summer parties in D.C.

  • joscefi

    …but you understand that when I say that, that’s what the rap on you is”

    Nice dodge, attributing the insult to anonymous others, shame it doesn’t work. The words out of your mouth, Mr. Wallace, are your words.

  • StrangernFiction

    Does Bachmann know what year it is?

  • Walter

    Being both a lawyer and a businesswoman, of course Bachmann knows what year it is. Now, just what are your creds there ‘fiction’?

  • labwriter

    I just saw this and I was shocked by it. Really Chris? You could tell that Bachmann was not happy with that question, nor should she have been. She managed to end the interview with a smile on her face, but my guess is she would have liked to go for Wallace’s throat.

    You can do better than that dude… Come on, give me one example of how she is less qualified or less intelligent than the current occupant of the White House.

  • a former dem

    WTF??! What a disgusting man, he could have asked that question in so many other ways.

    Maybe Wallace needs to also ask Bachmann, that doesn’t she know a woman’s place is in the kitchen, barefoot and pregnant??
    Maybe Wallace needs to accuse Bachmann of being a bad mother as well and a bad wife, doesn’t she know her place is behind her hubby?
    Maybe Wallace needs to ask all these questions. Why didn’t he?
    What a piece of turd this man is. No wonder I no longer watch his POS show. I don’t watch any of the Sunday shows.

    Its ok for a Democrat woman to aim for the glass ceiling because she is homely with a bad marriage but for a Republican woman who is successful in both career and marriage while still managing to look effortlessly beautiful its a no no.

    Chris Matthews, Chris Wallace. At least one of them doesn’t drool. Why don’t the dumbass democrats get asked stupid effing questions like that?

    My response would have been, “well no Chris, I’m a serious person. But are you a flak?”

  • mg4us

    She should have said,

    Chris, I know many Americans view this administration, and members of congress as flakes, like they do the media in general. . . it is a sad state of affairs the media and this administration stokes upon the American people for lack of leadership, courage and doing what’s right!”

    Start turning these media insults and bias back at them and the commie in the white house.

    Bachmann should have just said, “and those that established this ‘rap’ profess to believe that half of America is racist. Please ask me a serious question Chris.”

  • chicago

    this is a glimpse of what RINOs will do in order to discredit Bachmann. She’s rising in the polls and is virtually tied with RINO flag bearer Romney. the RINOs need to push her aside and they are starting to do so with these types of questions.

    I think that an email blast from conservatives to Fox News protesting this type of treatment of true conservative candidates will do wonders. send as much emails to fox and make their email servers go berserk!

    Way to go Chris. By asking the question ‘Are you’? You have proven that YOU Chris, ARE!!!!!!!!

    I would have said…Why Chrisy….Is that the type of question a serious journalist of any type would ask anyone ( a Senator) who has a law degreee, masters degree in tax law, started and runs her own business with her husband who also holds degrees, raised her own children( I believe) as well as took on 17 foster children ??????

    Chris are you a freaking moron? Do you really feel that is an appropriate question to ask someone with my credentials, integrity, morals, and background?

    Chris are you a dog humping lunatic who has a thing for camels?? Thats after all what people are saying with all due respect.

    When are politicians going to start calling out these jack off reporters out and put them in their place for stupid questions ?

    Just sent Wallace a note asking him if he’s going to pose the following question to Obama: “Are you a Marxist? Some people say that”. I asked Wallace if he has stopped beating his wife. I heard some people say that he did…..
    You get the picture. Terrible moment for him and FNS. Shameful.

  • JRD

    I,m sorry, I think she is a flake. She’s all talk and no action. She has zero executive experience and no leadership skills.

    Where is she on stopping the raising of the debt ceiling?

    Where is she on making sure that the Tea Party caucus voted against Pigford?

    Where is she furthering the agenda of the Tea Party?

    Why did she refuse to answer the question Wallace asked her on contrasting herself with Romney?

    Does that mean she agrees with socialized medicine and Gore-bull warming?

    This is a nightmare. We wake up and realize that we’ve been fooled again. If Michele is not “in it to win it” and refuses to contrast herself with Romney it means she’s running for VP. We need a conservative to beat Øbama.

    Michele has dropped the ball on Pigford, stopping the raising of the debt ceiling, and advancing the Tea Party agenda. We don’t have time to wait on Michele to run for POTUS. She should hand over the baton if she is not a self serving opportunist. If she cares about “we the people” she will either lead or get out of the way. It’s time for Michele to step down as leader of the Tea Party caucus but, Michele only cares about listing that on her resume. Millions of people did rise to the occasion to send Michele money when Nancy Pelosi placed a target on her back only to have Michele stab them in the back to further her own agenda.

    If she wants to run for POTUS she should run as a conservative and not a fake conservative who splits the conservative vote.

    If she wants to run for POTUS she should do the right thing and hand over the baton to someone else who can promote the Tea Party agenda. Millions of Tea Party people aren’t willing to sit around for a year and a half to get nothing done.

    Michele, put up or shut up. We have no patience for a lying DC lawyer politician traitor. In fact, we will hate someone like you more than Øbama. Your number is up.

    The template for the Beltway media is to kiss Blowhard’s ass. Can you imagine the reaction if Bush refused to do press conferences? But Blowhard can only communicate when he has a teleprompter in front of him, and he sounds like a dope without a preprogrammed speech. Note that whenever the teleprompter conks out, the Blowhard finds himself literally speechless.

    The much-vaunted messiah is really just an errand boy for the nation’s parasites, who don’t care what he says so long as that Obama Money is coming their way.

  • DC

    He may have well asked, “Did you stop beating your husband?”. I think she handled it well & he came off as a jerk.

  • He struggled to find a proper word. So with that said, if you can’t find the right word, don’t say the wrong word. Maybe ‘that the rap on you by some out there is you’re way out there’
    No Chris she’d not a flake. A lot of Americans feel some in congress ARE anti-American.
    Does that make us a flakes? NO. Americans have woken up about congress and the beltway crew.

  • WSG

    That is a softball question, seemingly always unappreciated by conservatives. Instead of using it as a launching point to show that she represents well thought out viewpoints (contrasting the impression left by her critics), she flubs and falters thinking the question is hostile. Not good. Worse yet, she might have thought it was a friendly room and not expected someone to ask about well publicized statements she made in the past.

    This is one of the reasons that conservatives have a hard time reaching the non-committed. When they get the opportunity to rebut a commonly repeated (false) characterization, they concentrate on some perceived slight and do not take advantage of the opportunity. Better to shoot the messenger. Look at how Paul Ryan addresses “unfriendly” questioning.

    I hope she bounced back in the exchange after this unflattering edit.

  • Eddie Willers

    I saw the entire interview, I thought Wallace did a pretty good job trying to do an unbiased interview & Michele Bachman parried very well. ( I like the Congresswoman a great deal Win or lose she’s good for the movement )

    The knock on FOX News is that it’s biased, the Knock on Bachman is that she sometimes shoots from the lip & comes across as a flake,

    Bachman handled it quite well & Wallace once again show he does shy away from asking the tough question & will do a hard hitting interview on a GOP Darling as opposed to say how Chris Matthews or Chritianne Amanpour would handle a favored progressive.

  • WHy do Conservatives go on these shows? No one watches them (check the ratings) and they are openly hostile. Palin’s right to ignore ANYONE who’s been rotten to her. A fair interview with tough questions is fine – if the candidate can’t handle that, it’s the candidate’s fault. But it’s the candidates’ fault to KNOW tools like Matthews are there not to interview but to expressly set them up to mock them. He has no audience, he’s just there to set up to be able to produce awkward clips that other “news” shows use ad nauseum to harm Republicans or Conservatives.

    Ignore them, go elswhere. THey are NOT here to get the message out.

  • Eddie Willers

    & JRD Not throwing Romney under the bus is a sign she’s aware that she’s rising in the polls. & is closing in on Romney’s Front runner status.
    Front runners don’t have to throw mud at anyone.

    It’s what the also rans do. Unless you’re Mike Shmuckabee & then you throw mud at the guy in 2nd place so you can make damn sure the MOST Progressive RINO in the Race gets the nomination.

  • ruready?

    Only a flake would ask that question.

  • StrangernFiction

    …she flubs and falters thinking the question is hostile.

    The question was RIDICULOUS, and the best response would not have been to legitimize it by “using it as a launching point to show that she represents well thought out viewpoints.”

    The GOP, and by extension America, is in BIG TROUBLE because the R’s DON’T FIGHT. PERIOD! Not because they see hostile and ridiculous questioning as hostile and ridiculous.

    his young wife’s cookbook. This used to be a news show when Britt Hume was on.

    PLEASE FOX REPLACE WALLACE WITH STEVE HAYS. What a great whiff of fresh air he is. He is a great balance to Charles Krauthammer. As much as I used to like Charles, I think he now
    has a celebrity problem.

    I like Chris Wallace and his williness to ask whatever of whomever. I like Bachmann and and have no problem voting for her if she wins the primary. If I was into softball interviews I’d watch one of the networks interview a democrat.
    The question of whether or not she is a flake is charge that has been leveled and he gave her a forum to answer that charge.
    It was a question. “Are you a flake?” Not a statement. You are a flake. Stop it.

    why it’s almost as if someone wants conservatives to be perceived as

    You realize, don’t you that no female candidate will be acceptable to the people who think of themselves as our betters, don’t you?

    Prejudice. Ordinary people gave it up during the 60s.

    OT: Another woman mending some of the damage done by the men in her life.

    Merely by visiting Africa, Michelle Obama has gone far to clean up the mess made by her pastor, the Rev. Wright. Some of us here recall that Rev. “God Damn America” Wright took his show on the road to Africa, claiming all the while that the United States invented HIV infection for the purpose of killing people of color. He made it very difficult for any white people at all (most HIV researchers are white) to even get the attention of blacks in Africa and in some portions of the US.

    The people of Africa and the black sub-population in the United States have paid the price for Rev. Wright’s slander with a much higher rate of HIV infection, and the resulting deaths.

    And yet, here is the wife of the President of the United States, fluffing out her hair and showing off her medium-toned skin, and on the front pages of the African newspapers every day.

    I am sure there are a lot of black people in Africa that have weighed the lies of Rev. Wright against the living, breathing presence of the wife of the President of the United States visiting their country.

    And what did she have to say?

    “Success is not about where you come from or how much money your family has,” she said in an oft-repeated line.
    “Success is about how passionately you believe in your own potential and more importantly how hard you’re willing to work to achieve it.”

    This is the same woman that told women in the US that, in her case, the discouragement to try for something bigger for herself came, not from the institutions, but from those closest to her. She didn’t mention Rev. Wright specifically, but her pastor has given an awful lot of speeches telling his congregation that the hand of every white man in the country, and every institution set up by whites, is against them. Michelle has been telling people that it just ain’t so.

    Barack Obama’s policies, and the Rev. Wright’s slander, are a disaster for people of African descent, both here and abroad. Michelle, because of her unelected position and the way our media disregards and distorts what all women in public life have to say, can have a very limited effect. The sad thing is, I suspect she has more sense than both those men, put together.

  • MaxTruth

    She needs to get used to it. The media has been fairly hands off so far because they hope that a Bachmann surge will keep Palin out. But rest assured Michele, they will come at you as viscously as they did Palin if they think you are a REAL threat.

    Bingo. It shows up in the language.

  • Old Fan

    The other day on Special Report, Wallace was filling in for Baier. The offering was absurd, as Wallace asked the panel 4 or 5 straight questions about “REPUBLICANS” (like divisions – contradictions, etc) instead of the obvious disaster facing the Democrats. Charles was wise to alter the direction of the question, focusing on how bad the situation is for the Democrats.

    Wallace still has that internal bias. And this offering was simply ugly. He should indeed apologize.

    But I want to thank Mrs. Bachmann, for she is not afraid to appear in challenging environments. She has ability and substance. There is no need to censor her interactions – which has shown a great weakness with some other Celebrities we have hyped.

  • Belladonna Rogers

    Chris Wallace deserves to be fired for this. It is an unconscionable abuse of his position. The McCarthyesque
    tactic of daring to tell a national audience what “people in Washington are saying,” is beyond the pale of professionalism. It was already wearisome and despicable decades ago when Barbara Walters sought to ambush interviewees with the weaselly, “some people say that you…”

    What people in Washington are actually saying, Chris, is what an achievement it is, according to today’s Des Moines Register, that “former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Minnesota congresswoman Michele Bachmann sit atop the standings in the year’s first Des Moines Register Iowa Poll on the Republican presidential field. Romney, the national front-runner and a familiar face in Iowa after his 2008 presidential run, attracts support from 23 percent of likely Republican caucus-goers. Bachmann, who will officially kick off her campaign in Iowa on Monday, nearly matches him, with 22 percent.”

    Fire Chris Wallace and make Fox News fair and balanced, rather than unconscionable and obnoxious by his presence and his lack of professionalism.

  • Gravelyvoice Jim

    I’ll accept Wallace’s apology as sincere. He did seem to mentally struggle to find the right words when asking the question, although it probably WAS inappropriate.

    What concerned me more as a Bachmann supporter was her response. Instead of taking the opportunity to at least question Obama’s judgement for hanging around anarchists like Bill Ayers and avowed communists like Frank Davis and Van Jones on a national news show, she punted and lamely acknowledged his “patriotism”.

    This is what was so refreshing about having Trump dabble briefly in the political arena – when the media backed him into a corner he came out swinging! WWTD?

    It seems to me that Wallace is trying to restablish his “middle of the road” cred (read leftist cred) with the Drive By Media after the small beating he gave last week to the leftist media idol John Stewart. I am sure that he has been privately receiving enormous private and public criticism for daring to tell the truth about and expose the fraudulent “middle of the road” posing by Stewart. To make amends he decided to deflect their attacks on him and regain his cred by doing an attack on Bachman. Anyway, that’s my take.

    that apple didn’t fall far from the tree. during the newark,nj riots in 1966 mike wallace was in the firehouse on springfield ave covering the riots. a police car pulled up on the apron of the firehouse. as the police men were getting out of the car shots rang out from the projects across the street. the police crawled under the police car to take cover. mike wallace seeing this from inside the firehouse turned to his cameraman and said “make sure you get a picture of those cowards.”

    a fireman standing nearby heard wallace’s comment. he took wallace and threw him out the door of the firehouse on to springfield ave. and locked the door of the firehouse. the brave,courageous mike wallace started banging on the firehouse door literally crying and begging the fireman to let him back into the safety of the firehouse.

  • Tru

    This was one of the worst interviews I’ve see Wallace do. He wastes most of his time asking about gay marriage, which is not even an issue and certainly not important since this election is all about jobs and the economy. Then he asks if she is a flake. We all know that the other Chris, Matthews asked her if she was in a trance in an interview once. Bachmann should have asked him to define flake. Palin tried to do this when Charlie Gibson asked her about the Bush Doctrine. His world view? No the doctrine, you tell me what it is and if you agree with it. This is the way liberal men treat female candidates. It’s a pattern. Christine O’Donnell, are you a witch? Michelle Bachmann, are you a flake? Sarah Palin, guess what I’m thinking and tell me if you agree.

    How about Barak Obama, are you a Marxist? Socialist? Tell me about Black Liberation Theology. Who was you economics professor is college? What roll has affirmative action played in your career? Education?
