Skip to comments.Fox News' Shepard Smith Goes Off on President Trump: 'We Are Not Fools'
Posted on 02/16/2017 10:17:32 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Following President Donald Trumps press conference on Thursday, in which he referred to reports of his campaigns contact with Russia as you guessed it fake news, Shepard Smith delivered a scathing response.
The Fox News anchor one of the few voices at the conservative network willing to take Trump to task began by defending rival CNN reporter Jim Acosta, whose attempts to ask Trump about the recent White House leaks turned into 10 minutes of the president attacking him, as well as the entire news organization.
Hes an accomplished reporter a guy Ive never met, but a good reporter, Smith said of Acosta. [Trump was] treating him like Im not even going to use the word. Im not going to give Twitter the love it needs. Its crazy what were watching everyday, its absolutely crazy. He keeps repeating ridiculous throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia, as if were some kind of fools for asking the question.
He continued: 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 were fools for asking the questions? 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.(continued)

He is not a fool, he is an idiot!
Not fools, huh?
Assumes facts not in evidence!
That has an “I am not a crook” ring to it.
Obviously, Shemp doesn't watch his own show. LOL. Sorry Shemp, YOU are a fool.
Shep Smith is a walking parody of a news anchor. He makes Ted Baxter on the old Mary Tyler More show look good and makes Kent Brockman on the Simpson’s look like an all-star.
So Shep is right he isn’t a fool. He’s graduated up to clown and the make-up he wears proves it.
Shepard Smith, you just ruined your career. And, no matter how badly you ruined your career, don’t you ever do that again. Don’t let your tongue cut off your head.
Who is “we”?...got a mouse in your pocket? (Oh wait, Shep might)
Maybe not all, but you are Shep.
Nothing more disgusting than someone who thinks his word is heeded and appreciated by the masses. Got a flash for ya Sheep-herd, nobody gives a damn what you say.....FOOL!!
It is possible that he jumped the shark on this one and he is going to be fired. I emphasize “possible”.
I used to watch a lot of Fox News. I bolted early on in the election because of the Trump attacks. Now I only watch Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity and will have to start watching Fox and Friends. I turned on Brett Baier this evening and was stunned when Jennifer Griffin was hyping the Russian connections to Trump and generally attacking Trump with the outright disinformation campaign of the Deep State and left. Baier and Catherine Herridge weren’t too much better. Fox News is still anti-Trump neocon BS propaganda.
A fool who wears eyeliner and fights over his parking spot.
That's not his pocket.
Actually, it’s hard to think of who might be more of a flaming fool than Shep.
Don’t you mean a Gerbil?
I could only stomach a few minutes of Sheep Smith, he was so awful I changed the channel and stopped watching Fox for the reat of the day.
I theorize that he has the goods on somebody high up on the totem pole at Fox.
I can’t believe FOX allows him to push his LGBT agenda of hate on their time.
When the fake news companies stark quoting Shep, you know FOX is going down the tank. They should have fired him ages ago.
