Ever since Megyn Kelly left Fox News, host Shep Smith has been one of the only people left at the network who regularly speaks out against Donald Trump. After what he did on air yesterday, however, it doesn’t seem like Smith will be employed at Fox much longer…
During Trump’s press conference on Thursday, he got into another confrontation with CNN host Jim Acosta, changing his description of the liberal network from “fake news” to “very fake news.”
“He’s an accomplished reporter — a guy I’ve never met, but a good reporter,” Smith said of Acosta, according to The Hill. “[Trump was] treating him like … I’m not even going to use the word. I’m not going to give Twitter the love it needs. It’s crazy what we’re watching everyday, it’s absolutely crazy. He keeps repeating ridiculous throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia, as if we’re some kind of fools for asking the question.”
“Really? Your opposition was hacked, and the Russians were responsible for it, and your people were on the phone with Russia on the same day it was happening, and we’re fools for asking the questions?” Smith continued. “No, sir, we are not fools for asking this question, and we demand to know the answer to this question. You owe this to the American people.”
“We have a right to know, we absolutely do, and that you call us ‘fake news’ and put us down like children for asking this question is inconsequential,” Smith concluded. “The people deserve that answer.”
Fox News fans, however, made it clear they did NOT like Smith’s latest rant:
@oreillyfactor shep smith needs to go; as far from fair and balanced as you can get; not pleasant to watch anymore
