Shepard Smith forgot what network he’s on. On Monday the Fox News host launched into a ridiculous anti-Trump tirade on-air. Watching him was like watching a typical fake news hack instead of a respected journalist.
Smith is particularly upset that President Trump bashed Oprah.
“The president spent the weekend defending himself, misrepresenting the truth and attacking others from his phone in Florida,” Smith began.
“The president attacked the Justice Department, the FBI, and his National Security Adviser H. R. McMaster. He attacked Congressman Adam Schiff, Democrats and the DNC. He attacked Hillary Clinton, President Obama, the previous Congress and the news media before going after Oprah Winfrey.”
Trump spent the weekend sounding off on Twitter. He touched on a lot of subjects, but not enough to please Smith. The supposed Republican is angry that Trump isn’t attacking Vladimir Putin.
“He did not attack Vladimir Putin nor Russia, nor did he express concerns that the Russians attacked the United States. Nor did he pledge in any way to put measures in place to stop future attacks,” Smith complained.
“The president’s spokespersons have been on television denouncing the Russian meddling, the president has not. Not once, not on camera, not on Twitter, not anywhere.”
The Russia investigation is a many-headed monster. Trump has repeatedly spoken about it. The part of the investigation that centers on election tampering is currently in the spotlight because it’s one the few accusations that have been substantiated.
The Justice Department is devoting considerable effort to figuring out what happened.
“The president stormed twitter from Mar-a-Lago after Robert Mueller gave the most concrete evidence yet of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. In one tweet, the president wrote “Very sad the FBI missed all the signals sent out by the school shooter. Very unacceptable. There’s no collusion. Get back to basics and make us all proud,’” Smith continued.
“There is a problem there. FBI officials acknowledged last week the bureau did not properly investigate a tip that the suspected mass murderer had a gun and wanted to kill people, possibly at a school.”
Smith admits the FBI messed up but still believes President Trump is wrong for pointing it out.
