Shep Smith comes out as gay (Truncated)
Daily Mail ^ | 10/17/2016 | Chris Spargo

Shepard Smith has come out as a gay man in a new interview.

The popular Fox News anchor, who has been with the network since it first launched 20 years ago, spoke about his sexuality in an interview with Huffington Post.

Smith, 52, confirmed the long-circulating rumor when he was asked if it was former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes who prevented him from coming out of the closet.

'That's not true. He was as nice as he could be to me. I loved him like a father,' Smith said of Ailes.

The 'love' Smith had for his old boss is why it was so difficult for him to deal with the network's sexual harassment scandal this past summer.

'I trusted him with my career and with - I trusted him and trusts were betrayed,' Smith said of Ailes.

'People outside this company can't know [how painful that betrayal was]. This place has its enemies, but inside, it was very personal, and very scarring and horrifying.'

Not sure why he felt the need to "come out". Maybe he needed to troll for dates. Say, isn't he an Ole Miss "guy"?

You know, I totally predicted this! My gaydar is so fine tuned that I can point out the one gay in a room of a hundred men. I remember I also predicted that Ricky Martin was gay and nobody believed me but I was right there too.

Other public figures I predict that we’ll eventually learn that are gay includes Tom Cruz, Anderson Cooper, and Richard Simmons. Yes... you heard it here first!

Misleading headline.

Shep did not come out of the closet, somebody kicked him out of the closet.

Now it’s just a matter of time to find out who did the kicking

Probably just a prelude to Drudge outing Hillary soon.
