Donald Trump may need to add Fox News to his list of failing, biased, no good, very bad, terrible, fake news outlets.
On Thursday evening, not long after Trump held his most bat $hit crazy press conference to date, Shepard Smith took a few moments on air to respond to the President’s many whines and complaints.
Earlier in the day, Trump had once again blasted the media, saying most newspapers will not tell readers “the truth.”
He added that journalists are “trying to attack our administration because they know we are following through on pledges that we made, and they’re not happy about it, for whatever reason.”
At one point, Trump denied all reports that his administration was in “chaos,” claiming it was a “fine-tuned machine.”
But Smith wasn’t having it.
A month after sticking up for CNN and slamming Trump on air, the Fox News anchor truly went off on the Commander-in-Chief.
“It’s crazy what we’re watching everyday, it’s absolutely crazy,” Smith told a guest o Trump.
“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? 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.”
Trump stood at his podium and ranted like a lunatic just days after General Michael Flynn resigned as National Security Advisor due to his illegal contact with Russian officials.
Flynn lied about this contact to Trump and others U.S. government representatives.
“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 added. “The people deserve that answer.”
