Fox News host Chris Wallace said President Joe Biden‘s inaugural address was the “best” out of all the speeches he’s “ever heard” since former President John Kennedy was inaugurated in 1961.

“I thought it was a great speech,” Wallace said after Biden’s ceremony. “I thought this was the best inaugural address I ever heard.”

When talking about Biden’s speech, Wallace mentioned that it “was colored by the emotion” of the Capitol attacks at the beginning of the month.

“There was a mob of thugs, of insurrectionists, of domestic terrorists on the inaugural stand,” Wallace said. “And Joe Biden was saying that democracy prevailed. We were able to get through that, and he was talking about how we need to get through that in the future if we are going to be a united country.”
