Fox News host Shep Smith has spent the past year alienating fans at his network by constantly and relentlessly bashing President Donald Trump. Now, it appears he has taken things way too far, and he may have just destroyed his career.
Raw Story reported that Smith and the Wall Street Journal’s John Bussey were talking about the new book “Fire and Fury” that makes various bombshell claims about the Trump White House when Smith claimed that an administration that’s told “hundreds” of lies will have a hard time convincing people it’s now telling the truth.
Funny, Smith and his fellow liberals didn’t seem to have a problem when Barack Obama was lying!
Smith then gleefully read a passage from Michael Wolff’s new book that alleged Trump was unprepared for, and largely uninterested in, actually assuming the presidency.
“Trump did not enjoy his own inauguration,” Smith said, quoting when Wolff claimed Trump was “angry…that A-level stars snubbed the event.”
“So the administration is saying, ‘Just don’t believe this book, that there are a lot of untruths in it,” Bussey told Smith. “It’s going to be tough for an administration that has had trouble presenting the truth itself and has been caught in any number of falsehoods—”
“Hundreds,” Smith cut in.
Fox News fans, however, weren’t having any of it and immediately called for Smith to be fired for his blatant anti-Trump bias:
