Shepard Smith Donald Trump

Fox News' Shepard Smith Goes Off on President Trump: 'We Are Not Fools'

Following President Donald Trump‘s press conference on Thursday, in which he referred to reports of his campaign’s 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.

“He’s an accomplished reporter — a guy I’ve never met, but a good reporter,” Smith said of Acosta. “[Trump was] treating him like … I’m not even going to use the word. I’m not going to give Twitter the love it needs. It’s crazy what we’re watching everyday, it’s absolutely crazy. 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.”

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 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.”

Smith concluded, “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. The people deserve that answer.”

    Thank you Mr. Smith for saying it like it is!! We want facts!! Can not believe what is happening in our Country!! Hopefully the FBI , CIA and even the military are investigating all this with Russia!!!

    • Kathy Goodrich: All I have to say is “Ditto”!!

    • Dan says:

      Kathy and Maggie … you’re both idiots.

      • Laura Barmettler says:


      • Wow Dan, what a comeback. Did you come up with that all by yourself or did you have help? How about you try a comment with substance?

      • nose says:

        And you ???

      • ed says:

        The real Liberal Shep is out of the closet

        • Margaret Roga says:

          Shep has been struck with liberitis of the brain for a while now. Too bad – he was a nice sort of fellow.

          • Angela says:

            You know, these sorts of comments aren’t cute or funny or clever. Grow up.
            For the hundreth time, people, it isn’t just liberals who are angry with Trump, okay? He’s currently got a 39% approval rating. 39%. His approval rating dropped that low after only nearly a month in office. Clearly it can’t just be liberals/Democrats who are responsible for that historically low drop in support.
            Trump has put this country at serious risk with his insane behavior and his questionable connections. There is corruption and scandal all over the place in his administration (DeVos buying off Republicans for her nomination, anyone?). He’s saying the most bizarre things in interviews and press conferences, he’s showing total ignorance of how the basic functions of government work, he doesn’t even know about the nuclear triad. That’s kind of a massively important thing for any president to know, don’t you think?
            You Trump supporters picked an absolutely crap candidate. You’re on the losing side here. Deal with it and accept it and quit dismissing all the valid criticism of Trump as “fake”, or “liberal whining” or whatever other BS you want to try spouting.

          • Matt says:

            Margaret Roga, so you acknowledge that because Shep is rational, educated, and strives for the truth, he must be liberal.

            Interesting. True, but still interesting.

          • Dividing the world in “liberal” and “conservative” is an archaic and lazy way of avoiding discussion of issues. Trump is hardly a conservative or a liberal and it makes no sense to continue to use these outdated binary categories as terms of endearment or as terms of abuse.

            Besides which, when cracks begin to appear in the protective coating that even Fox-of all networks- has put around President Trump, one can’t help but begin to count this administration’s remaining period in office in weeks or months, rather than in years. It’s difficult to see how it can’t last very much longer.

          • Rex the Wonder Dog says:

            Ok, conservatard.

        • Lynn Lacy-Hauck says:

          @ Angela – yes agreed. Not helpful to continue to see ourselves with some ridiculous invisible line between us. Both Dems and Repubs in my family and I love them all. Let’s talk about the issues instead of fighting and name calling. It’s such a waste of time. I’m tired of the moral high ground (even), lets help each other.

      • Temperance says:

        Russian troll.

      • SG says:

        Trump and his supporters are the idiots.

      • Matt says:

        Dan, you are confusing Kathy and Maggie with the average tRUMP devotee.

      • marianwhit says:

        That is nice…is that always the way you introduce yourself?

      • Bennington says:

        Dan, You see what you just did there. When someone disagrees with you or your opinion, you didn’t explain your thoughts and give your opinion…you just resort to name calling. That is exactly what “He” does. He calls people names, deflects valid questions, that he could address and explain and blames his detractors for asking.
        These are the reasons he is losing support even from his followers and is certainly not conducting himself like a president of the U.S. He is not supposed to be a dictator who destroys those who question him, just like they have every president before him. He makes himself the fool, the same your way your reply did you. The only problem is he has power which makes him very dangerous to the world where your are impotent . I believe he is far more a threat to the U.S. and the world right now than all those people he keeps harassing and telling us threaten this country. Does anyone really believe he is going to leave quietly, if it comes to that. Please take the launch codes away from him, he is acting totally delusional and unstable.

      • Lisa says:

        Great comeback Dan, Trump write that for you?

      • Lee says:

        And, Dan, you are a “deplorable” bully!

      • wendy scott says:

        kathy and Maggie are NOT idiots….you are…you are the sheep thinking Trumphole is on the level when he is a coke dipping, dementia ridden friek!

      • billboyd says:

        I agree

    • bobbyg says:

      Did you ask for facts with all the Obummer scandels? I bet not. Your PC didn’t allow it, did it?

      • Temperance says:

        Russian troll.

      • Matt says:

        Bobbyg, Donald tRUMP is in the White House now, so it’s perfectly relevant to scrutinize upon his performance, just as it was to scrutinize President Obama while he was there. Your petulant, butt-hurt rant, so ignorant and so typical of the tRUMP supporters, only shames you.

        Just so you know.

        • Michael Harris says:

          Matt your a stupid ass period and I am not a liberal I am a native American I did not ask for this kind you call a president I see your head is so far up your ass that you can familiarize the stank like your low dog Trump and you can’t compare him to any president including the worse because the simple truth is he is not he is playing a reality series people do not need

          • Matt says:

            Michael Harris, you have replied to the wrong person, I am afraid.

          • Heather says:

            Hello there i also am native American and i completely agree with you Michael. I dont ever vote bc i hate the government and all it stands for. The white man takes our land, to better this country but since the beginning of this wonderful government we have watched these great leaders( presidents) look like fools each in their own way. This land of the free is so messed up!:-):-);-)

      • kath says:

        I ask for facts with all politicians.
        With Trump and his cabinet, there are so very many more than there were with Obama or Clinton. Obama didn’t put in a Secretary of Education who has zero knowledge of education because her family gave $200 million to the party, or a Secretary of Energy who had no idea what the job entails..

    • Rod Larson says:

      The very reason you bring up “Russia,” is proof the MSM is propaganda,

    • Mike Coonce says:

      ive had eight years of seeing the distruction of this country

      • rob says:

        oh really? i guess you must not have seen how we crawled out of the biggest depression in modern history to record highs in the stock markets.. home sales are up, interest rates have had to go up to combat inflation.. things have DRASTICALLY improved over the past 8 years.

        so maybe instead of spewing that party line, you come up for air and SEE and THINK for yourself.

        • Sherry says:

          I don’t know who you have been talking to but due to Obama there are more people on welfare then ever before, we have our children killing other children in the streets, he has divided this country so much more racially, he has made us a laughing stock around the world, he has brought us closer to the New World Order, he gave 25% of our uranium to Russia, he set the IRS after conservative groups, he turned civilians against law enforcement, and many people have lost their benefits and full time jobs due to Obamacare. Talk to non-union firemen. Many have been reduced to part time because the smaller companies can not afford the Obamacare fines. They must work at three different departments to get enough hours to provide for their families usually making between $10 -$14 an hour. There may be a few people who have done better like the rich and the poor but most of the middle class are hurting more because of Obama’s presidency.

      • George A Erhard says:

        *looks around*

        What ‘distruction’ do you refer to? I’m not seeing it. I’m seeing unemployment numbers down, Bush’s deficit reduced, a strong dollar, and people actually starting to get their feet back under them after a banking crash, a housing crash, and two wars we didn’t need to wage. This is after 8 years of uphill work because of a do-nothing whingefest of a Congress, all of them paid, pensioned, and protected to sit on their asses rather than do the work we elected them to do. Would we still be employed if we followed Congress’s lead on “how to do our jobs”? I don’t think so. I know I wouldn’t.

        And now we have Mr. Game Show Exec, Chief Small Hands, Trumpelthinskin, and his appointed band of self-aggrandizing nihilists… who promised to make America great again (it was, is, and has always been ‘great’ despite what you’ve been shown on certain news networks, those with the perpetual bright red “sky is falling” chyrons and other tricks of subliminal conditioning) and instead are working on making their own pockets ‘great’ at our expense. Not my expense. Not his or hers. OURS.

        This isn’t a Liberal or Conservative thing. This is citizen-level damage control, to try and contain the Orange Menace before he says “F*** ‘Em If They Can’t Take A Joke” and pushes the Big Red Button out of spite.

    • The FBI lies to the CIA…the CIA lies to the FBI and they all lie to the White House…Not sure who is leing to them…tho schissch!

    • Cherry Stallworth says:

      It’s too late you voted him in and now you see the light. All the reports that came in about him before the election from all the experts showed this kind of behaviour. What do you want after the facts lady, and yes thank you Mr. Smith for calling him out.

      He has the right ideas but he’s not the one to lead this country or any country. He’s so sneakey you can never trust him. What were you people thinking, had you forgot who Russia is and our past relations. To thionk of so many who have died and fought against Russia during the cold war and for today’s American people to forget what they fought for, for this?… for what I ask?

      • Don says:

        How many of my generation DIED in Vietnam and tRUMT (who did NOT serve) is now selling us out!!!

        • Maria says:

          And I suppose Obama who did not serve as well didn’t sell us out?????? Seriously – 8 years worth and did you complain then???

          • Scott says:

            Russian shill right here folks

          • Noone says:

            President Obama was eight years old when Vietnam was going on.

          • George A Erhard says:

            Yeah, the Selective Service minimum age was 18 during the Vietnam conflict… not eight. It was also the last time we instituted the draft, so ‘serving’ afterward was of course a choice, not an obligation.

            Perhaps you’re posting from someplace that arms children and sends them out to kill each other? Somalia perhaps? I hear it’s a real paradise for those who don’t like government meddling in their lives.

      • marianwhit says:

        You know, there will probably be less bloodshed if you refrain from the rub-your-nose in it “I told you so.” Give people a chance to step back and look at the situation rather than placing them on the defensive…make them sorry for the names they called, and welcome them back to reason.

      • ScottyKtheTree says:

        “What were you people thinking?” The same thing most people who voted for trump still think. They voted for who they thought was the lesser of two evils. FACT IS : both Hillary and now possibly Donald should be in jail. BOTH. What were you thinking letting them get rid of Bernie?

        • heather says:

          This country Is racist in the sense that there is no way They would let a woman become president. They only let Obama in to throw everyone off, From the fact that America Is racist just like their forefathers. They drove them to become criminals after slavery in order to inprison As many as possible asap, thus changIng the name slavery to criminal….

    • Temperance says:

      I mean, it has to be the Trump Circus of Insanity to provoke someone at FOX to say something against a (fake) Republican.

    • marianwhit says:

      Finally someone at Fox stands up and says, “the Emperor has no clothes.” Way to go Fox for hiring Mr. Smith. First thing Fox has done right in a while (although I would never condemn you the way the president is doing to your peers and the American judiciary…very, very shameful). This country desperately needs INDEPENDENT non-partisan JOURNALISTS. A democracy without journalism is like a garden with no gardener. It just does not work. Glad you took the step and hired someone with guts enough to say something that was true regardless of its popularity. When you dispense with the idea that news is entertainment, provide the facts, and let me make up my own mind, I will start watching.

  2. Troy says:

    Wonder what Trump is going to say about this, if anything, because it seems Fox News was the only news channel on his side but now they even despise him. You can’t just keep avoiding questions and issues and just hoping they go away. Trump is a child.

    • Kitty says:

      I don’t think think they despise him 😱

    • jeffrey c morrow says:

      You mean because you ask the media to be honest and FAIR, and he doesn’t take this bias without taking the media to task, you think he is a child. That’s what’s crazy. The way that he has been treated from the time of his election is what is hard to watch. If Obama had been treated like this, the media would have fallen all over themselves to defend him. For example, rather than try to glorify the protesters who do not seem to understand the difference between an immigrant and an illegal immigrant, why don’t you explain the difference? Most of the protesters can’t even explain the ban. Obama did the same type of thing and he was right to do so.

      • Wayne says:

        So, everyone being mean to Donald is upsetting to you? I bet you were outraged when Obama had to show his birth cerftificate. How fair was that? What about the people who were protesting with nooses and comparing Obama and his family to gorillas? That must have really gotten under your skin. Or was that all okay to you? Look dude. People are gonna be mean to the president. I heard some awful things about Obama while he was in office. But Donald needs to have a thicker skin. All the media is doing is reporting what he’s doing. Everyone is judging him on HIS actions. Not what MSM says. Sorry!

        • Ummm Wayne, I don’t think it’s ridiculous to ask a person that would like to serve as leader of the greatest country in the world for proof that they were actually born in said country. Specifically when that person spent portions of their childhood living overseas and has immediate family (his dad’s family) still lived out of the country. And no, it’s not a race thing. Obama came out of nowhere in 2006/2007 with an unknown past/history and thus it was a fair question to ask. Did Trump and birthers ask this question the correct way? No, they didn’t. That is the real problem.

          • What was unknown? man’s life was as much a matter of public record as anyone else’s. Birth, school records (those in the US, anyway), employment history, TAX RETURNS… He didn’t come out of nowhere, he came out of Harvard (which in my book is almost nowhere, but then again I went to Princeton and Yale) and Columbia (which is a fine school known around the world). He had less name recognition than many, and ran through the state legislator+senator phases too quickly for my taste (I thought he should have done 6 years in the Senate before trying for the brass ring) but he wasn’t an International Man of Mystery.

          • parstl says:

            You are either very undereducated or a racist. President Obama’s life was and is an open book. He was one of the classiest presidents ever while Trump antics foster sexism and racism. He’s misogynistic and is mentally unbalanced. He’s costing the country tens of millions of dollars to fortify and protect his preferred office at Trump Tower. A President in office regularly tweeting like an adolescent. He shames the nation.

          • George says:

            He came out of nowhere? He just appeared? He went to harvard and columbia, grew up in the us, made his way through law school made it as a senator and became president. I can see youre a trump supporter and poorly educated.

          • Lucifer says:

            parstl “President Obama’s life was and is an open book”

            Yeah, except for that ugly detail of him having a half brother living in the slums of Africa while he’s water skiing with Richard Branson and hanging out with Beyonce and Jay-Z.

          • Scribe says:

            No the problem was he wasn’t white but you people are too gutless to admit it.

          • Doug says:

            I don’t think that it is ridiculous to ask a person that would like to serve as President of the United States to release his tax returns.

            Also, I don’t mind if all candidates for President had to show that s/he meets the constitutional requirements, including age and citizenship. The problem here is that only Obama has been asked to provide this. Did anyone ask Mr. Trump or Mrs. Clinton to present proof of their citizenship/age? Let’s keep it real.

        • Marci says:

          Thank you, Wayne The verbal abuse against the Obamas was relentless, and he handled it with maturity and grace, unlike the arrested toddler who occupies the Oval Office now.

        • Lucifer says:

          There’s a major difference from random nobodies doing or saying things against President Obama (which many of them were investigated) and then major news outlets, celebs, and terrorist groups like ANTIFA rioting, hurting people, talking about blowing up the white house, talking about committing treason, etc.

          The reason leak is worthy of being upset over as it’s actually an act of treason which CNN is now an accomplice to. And there are many stories that turned out to be completely fake. Look at last week with the ICE raids, the MSM along with democratic politicians claimed it was targeting “single mothers, maids, waitresses.” The reality was they were rounding up people who have committed serious crimes including rape, murder, drug distribution.

          And here’s some other actual fake news stories:

          NY Magazine claimed there was a tri-state voter hacking.
          Time reporter claimed the MLK bust was removed from the Oval Office.
          NY Times falsely claimed the White House website “purged” any mention of climate change.
          Multiple outlets claiming Betsy DeVos used the excuse that guns are needed in schools to “fight off bears.”
          CNN claimed Nancy Sinatra was unhappy about Trump and Melania dancing to “My Way.”
          Fox reported a hoax story about a Muslim man who claimed his mother died during the ban.
          The Associated Press claimed Trump threatened to invade Mexico during a phone convo between him and the Mexican president.

          • Audrey says:

            Why don’t we go ahead and attempt to list the things Trump has lied about in the past week, to be fair. People are waiting for some accountability from our President. He lies, and his supporters flat out do not care. It is completely nonsensical… I was not a Clinton supporter and I look at each claim about him objectively… The media absolutely has blown certain things out of proportion, but the man is a liar, plain and simple. The things he lies about are not small and he is burying himself in his own s–t He speaks like a man who is used to just having a boardroom listen without having to worry about accountability because he could simply spin it later. Trump WAS the man in the room with the answers and he expected the American public to take him at his word like the people he paid to be around him. He just cannot bulls–t his was through the presidency. To say he does not lie and is not being fairly treated by the media, is turning your back on common sense and ignoring what is right in front of you.

          • Lucifer says:

            @Audrey, I am well aware that Trump has mislead and even lied about certain things. However, to actually say that the media is holding him accountable lacks common sense in of itself. The media failed to hold Obama accountable for the plethora of things he mislead and lied about during his 8 years due to personal and financial biases and would go on the attack if anyone dare criticize him. Now, they have reversed their tactics and are throwing everything they can at Trump, which mostly adds up to insane conspiracy theories. While there is actually some much needed criticism directed at Trump, it is unfortunately and entirely drowned out by the 90% of the media that is solely focused on the conspiracy theories they created about him. If they were simply doing their job, researching things before publishing them, and factually criticizing him then I would agree that Trump’s reaction to the media goading him at his press conference was extremely inappropriate. But as someone who has watched not only how the media has treated Trump, but so many others who have much less of a voice and suffered greatly, the media deserves every ounce of backlash they deserve.

            As for his supporters, this is probably falling on deaf ears, but the thing many of the people against him fail to realize is that people didn’t vote for him because they are bigoted or ignorant. They voted for him because this election was all about change and anti-establishment. The Democrats failed to recognize this and pushed one of the biggest examples of establishment politicians instead of their anti-establishment candidate who had better polling numbers than all other candidates. Even the independents received noticeable numbers compared to previous elections. This was supposed to be a wakeup call that people are not happy with Washington D.C. Let’s hope the other problematic politicians realize this before they get voted out as well.

        If Obama had behaved at all the way Trump’s been behaving in while in office, I would’ve wholeheartedly supported them calling him out the way Shepard Smith did here. Any president who’s engaged in the kind of nonsense and scandal Trump’s been involved in deserves to be called out.

          • Arlene B Berger says:

            Obviously Shepard Smith has lost his objectivity when reporting on the president. It’s ok for him to have a difference of opinion but, it’s not his job to offer his opinion and to use his bigger than life platform as a bully pulpit to show disrespect. With all the nonsense we heard about the DNC and Hillary Clinton, how do we know if this information is true or that there are characters that want to destroy America by putting it out there. Please, Shep, grow up and act like an adult and learn to respect everyone including the president. You will, in turn, be respected for your fair reporting and your employer will not lose so many viewers. Displaying such anger and disdain for the president.doesn’t make you a credible journalist.

      • Laura Barmettler says:

        President Obama was treated far worse and for over eight years he and his family were called every vile name that republicans could pronounce . This has not happened to our incapable trump. I have a list of the outrageous things that were said about him and his family. The FBI reported Presidaent Obama received 400 percent more death treats than any other President too. I do not remember him being defended by ANY white person on Fox, Newsmax, etc.

This WEAK pathetic loser is not fit to run a Dairy Queen, let alone a country. He is a draft dodging WEAK loser little baby boy who needs to step down and let a real man do the job. He can’t even face the press, how do you expect this little coward to face any kind of national disaster or god forbid a war?

Shep quoted: “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?” Does anybody recall this actually happening, or is Shep making up his own facts?

  3. Michael Henry Mitchell says:

    Shepard Smith used to be a great news anchor but now he has inserted his personal views as a commentator and a poor one at that. His anti Trump side comments were disgraceful even for a left wing commentator. To me anyone that presents personal views as absolute truth can never be called a newsman again. My advice give up the news and become someone like Bill O’Reillty but move to MSNBC and get off my FOX news.

      one by one as everyone realizes your president is a joke you decide people are bad at their jobs. Typical.

      • Barbara W. says:

        Tha president has done more for this nation in only 3 weeks ! He’s doing an outstanding job and working long days, not playing golf every day. Shep and the MSM don’t like him, but we, the American do!

        • Gloria Johns says:

          EXACTLY what has he done? And please be precise.

        • Sara says:

          Wait, seriously? He has spent the past 2 weekends on vacation at his personal resort. At least 6 days of his 3 weeks has been on vacation already.

        • Debbi says:

          I’m sure there are Americans that do you think he is doing a good job but I personally don’t know any of them

        • Brock Hard says:

          What?!?! He’s been golfing three times since he took office only 28 days ago. LOL

        • He has been on the job about 27 days and has been at his golf resort on 7 of them…probably playing golf. Though not every day, he is on pace to set the record for a president. And other than canceling a bunch of laws that protect us all that took years to establish, the only thing he has done is get a blister on his signing hand. And we can’t forget him pissing off several country leaders, except of course, Russia’s.

        • He’s on golfing on the weekends three weeks in a ROW. Obama’s first golf outing? Four MONTHS into his term.

        • Chris Leonardi says:

          Lol he criticized Obama for how often he played golf, and then hit the links in his second week.

        • Disgraceful827 says:

          Not playing golf every day? Are you blind, stupid or a liar? Trump has flown down the Mar a lago every single weekend since taking office to play golf. You Trump supporters are so stupid it blows my mind. Most likely most of you are in your 70s or 80s and going senile like Donald “Fake News” Trump so I forgive you for that.

        • bleveque2017 says:

          Seriously? What American do you live in? Everyday I expect some from of Russian interference from this idiot. I do not understand how you cannot see this man, or manchild, is not FIT to run this country. I hope the GOP is happy that they will be solely responsible to the ruination of this country. GOD help us all.

        • Chris says:

          Uh no…we DONT!!!!

        • George A Erhard says:

          … you might want to rethink that statement, given that Trump has not ‘accomplished’ anything yet. He’s signed his name a few times, tweeted a bunch of nonsense as per usual, and then flown to Mar A Lago every freaking weekend.

          Where… he discussed the North Korean missile launch (and the possible US responses to it) with classified documents spread over a table in the midst of non-vetted civilians, with aides holding cell phones up as flashlights. Let that sink in. Cell phones… using their CAMERA LIGHTS to read by… with their CAMERAS pointed at the documents.

          (And then he crashed a wedding reception, with the Japanese Prime Minister in tow.)

          And lets not forget, that “successful” covert op that ended with a destroyed plane, a dead SEAL, a village’s worth of dead women and children, all without even seeing the target of the op who went on to taunt Our Fearless Leader afterward. Oh, what was the Prez doing during this perilous escapade, one that the previous POTUS said was too risky to actually pull off? He. was. WATCHING. A. MOVIE.

          His ‘outstanding job’ has been one screw-up after another. He has no concept of diplomacy, he can’t curb his social media addiction (from an unsecured cellphone!) and he has yet to realize that the Job of President of the United States isn’t about HIM, it’s about US. All of US.

          Meanwhile, “Acting President” Bannon (whom none of us voted for) is proceeding with the dismantling of the government agencies that ensure our kids and grandkids will have schools to attend, safe food to eat and water to drink, and actual nice places to go camping instead of a vacant lot overrun with rusty metal scraps and barbed wire.

          What has Trump accomplished in 3 weeks? Well… as a Bull in a China Shop – he’s making headway against the dinner plates, and he might get to the vases by week’s end! Go, POTUS…!

    • Wordsmith says:

      Walter Kronkite, generally accepted as the greatest news anchor of all time, knew that there comes a time when you can’t just passively report the news – you need to be a human being and speak your mind.

      • MJ says:

        Please do not disrespect The greatest news person that ever lived. It is spelled Cronkite and I watched him all the time during his tenure as the anchor of the CBS News.

        • Gloria Johns says:

          It’s called doing your job, MJ. Journalism and reporting is not about standing there and listening to what you know is crap without challenging the answer. Good for you, Shepard!

        • Stan Jacobs says:

          Cronkite was sued quite frequently by injured parties and lost quite frequently because he tried to combine his job as a reporter and as a critic.
          Professional journalism requires absolute objectivity.
          The major news media is sorely lacking in both Professional journalism and journalists that possess a sense of objectivity.

          • kath says:

            Where do you put Breitbart in terms of objectivity? Or the repeated statements that there is no global climate change in spite of 97% of the world’s scientists saying there is?
            The news media isn’t perfect, no one is, but agencies like the BBC, DW and the CBC do a professional job even if what they’re saying isn’t what Trump and the GOP want to hear.

    • Andy Cobb says:

      I fully agree that “Shep” has taken on an adversarial position toward our President and his administration. His assertions that we deserve answers is quite dramatic when you consider that no evidence or “facts” regarding the alleged Russian interference in the election have ever been provided to the public, something Shep’s argument is based on.

      Furthermore, the facts surrounding the alleged violations are all highly classified and cannot be shared publicly. Moreover, the initial investigations have shown that no laws were broken and that no connection to possible election fixing exists. Take the time to provide as much time and attention to the FACTS that do exist as you spend on “possible” facts that may come out of the investigations. Like Wolf Blitzer, Shep relies on innuendo, speculation, and hearsay to distort facts and blur the truth.

      I hope that Megyn Kelly will find room for Shep at NBC or perhaps Wolf’s gang at CNN could bring him over there. Shep surely does not follow the credo of “Fair and Balanced” in the way that most all other FOX news journalists strive to do day in and day out.

      • Diane Konieczny says:

        So it’s not fair and balanced unless it is all pro-Trump all the time? Interesting take there, Andy.

        • Andy Cobb says:

          What is interesting Diane is that you have demonstrated exactly the point I make about attempting to make your innuendo appear like a fact. Any number of the other FOX anchors and program hosts have taken positions contrary to the President. They consistently include guests who disagree and are allowed to express those thoughts freely.

          Perhaps you missed it but Megyn Kelly, who at the time was one of FOX’s top program hosts, delivered the Trump campaign one of its most public and stinging confrontations. Bill O’Reilly, the top newsman in cable TV, has consistently confronted the President throughout the campaigns and since he has taken office. Chris Wallace has certainly challenged Trump the candidate and now our President.

          Sorry Diane, you are wrong, the facts do not support your baseless accusation that, outside of Shep, all other FOX anchors and hosts “are pro-Trump all the time” as you state to be a fact.

          • Trey says:

            Wow Andy, you sure read ALOT into Diane’s comment. I don’t see anything in her reply that “accuses” anyone, much less “all other FOX anchors and hosts”, as being pro #45 all the time. Your baseless accusation towards Diane, is not supported by facts. But I must hand it to you, you provided a #45 worthy rambling and alt fact ridden deflection of an answer. I can tell you are patting yourself on the back.

          • Andy Cobb says:

            WOW Trey, I suggest you take the time to read my original post and then put Diane’s response and my follow up in context. Essentially, Diane makes the point that, “So it’s not fair and balanced unless it is all pro-Trump all the time,” Via innuendo she makes an oblique and misleading accusation by following that with, “Interesting take there, Andy.” That was not my “take” but clearly her take. I never said let alone alluded to or insinuated that if it is not pro-Trump it is not fair and balanced. Once again, that was her assertion, not mine, as she tried to make it appear. The rather direct point I made is that Diane’s innuendo is an example of what I spoke about in the original post … her use of innuendo to make false claims that will appear to be a fact. Simply reading the exchange can confirm the facts. So Trey, this severely challenges your charge about making a “baseless accusation towards Diane” as well as your assertion that my response to her “is not supported by facts.” All the examples I gave here as well as those in my original post regarding FOX News hosts and anchors (other than Shep) are factual and can be checked for accuracy. I also think the directness of my response is obvious and can hardly be disguised and distorted by your rhetoric of being “rambling” or as an “alt fact ridden deflection.” I deflected nothing, I just expressed opinions based on facts I provided to respectfully respond to Diane’s assertion and attempt to put her words in my mouth.

      • George A Erhard says:

        You know… it’s interesting that just now you’re noting that one noted FOX news anchor “relies on innuendo, speculation, and hearsay to distort facts and blur the truth.”

        The entire network has been doing this since its inception. But it’s good you’re catching on.

        Perhaps it’s not so much the fact that Shep Shepard actually became a journalist instead of continuing to be an alarmist talking head like his bosses want… but that the on-air polarity shift was a bit hard to process for those watching.

        Cognitive dissonance can be painful. I recommend fresh air and time away from the TV.

    • Nancy Gabl says:

      I agree. Smith has been showing his true colors lately with his attitude and snotty remarks. I never watch his show.

    • Take what you said Mr. Mitchell and apply it to Mr. Trump. Does it sound the same to you? Mr. Trump inserts his personal views into every sentence he says. Talking next to the Israeli Prime Minister he sounded like a 3rd grader.

    • Wordsmith says:

      I wonder how many of these pro-Trump comments are actually Russian social engineers still being paid to steer the conversation like they did during the election.

      • Ben says:

        I once accidentally stumbled onto a Russian newspaper website and encountered this. All of the ‘community leaders’ there were clearly paid propoganda-mongers. It was bizarre, I was like ‘what’s going on, why are the community leaders all pushing the same canned lines???’ and then I realised I was reading an article in the Russian Times.

        Dunno if that extends to here (wouldn’t be surprised though if it does happen sometimes – in New Zealand, where I’m from, during the election, suddenly all the pro-Trump comments on stories about him had hundreds of thumbs up… you never see hundreds of thumbs up for anything, and it’s notable that after the election, the very same comments are -20, -30 instead).

      You can spot a Trump supporter a mile away, the same juvenile name-calling.

        The US is NOT a democracy. It’s a republic. Learn the difference.

        • BM says:

          The fact that the US is a republic and not a democracy just means that the leading politicians aren’t elected directly. It doesn’t mean that it has to happen via minority votes, so that is merely an excuse.

        • Chris says:

          *sigh* Yes the US is a democracy. It’s just not a direct democracy given that such a government would be impractical at best. There are many forms of democracy however beyond direct. Long story short just goggle something like “Is the US a democracy or a republic” and educate yourself before you hop on a message board and look like a fool.

          • Marshall says:

            US Constitution Article IV, Section 4. “The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government.” Maybe you should actually read the constitution and not rely on googling your answers.

            Correct. It’s a flavor of democracy, not a republic,

    • Dotti says:

      President Trump is a liar – a compulsive one from what we have seen in the last year. Just because you don’t like what is being said doesn’t mean it isn’t true.

    • Ron says:

      Well, since Trump is a liar…..
      And I doubt you had any form of outrage when all the right wing and Fox News people were calling Obama a liar. A Republican literally yelled “You lie!” to Obama while he was giving a speech on the House floor.

      • regs says:

        I remember that, I wasn’t outraged when it happened. I thought it was immature and unprofessional on their part but whatever, that’s their view and they’re entitled to it.

        I wouldn’t call myself liberal or conservative. I respected George W and felt that he made policy that would benefit the United States. Sometimes those decisions are difficult and unpopular but must be made. While I don’t agree with all of Obama’s policies I don’t think he was nearly as bad as he was made out to be. I still feel that he also made policy on what he thought would best benefit the US.

        Trump I do not have this opinion of. With so many unanswered questions and his absolute refusal to answer them is a big red flag to me. So what you talked with the Russians. You’ve had business dealings with them in the past, it would probably be explainable. He needs to be open and honest with the American people, otherwise he’s worse than Obama.

        • Bill Collins says:

          Amen. It’s refreshing to see some rational thought.

    • Angela says:

      How can you allow Sheepard Smith to call the President of the United States a liar.
      Probably because Trump IS a liar?
      There is nothing wrong with the press calling the president out when they’re not telling the truth. That’s kind of one of their jobs. If Trump and his supporters are tired of him being called a liar, then maybe Trump should, y’know, stop lying, and his supporters should quit defending and excusing his lies.

    • Gloria Johns says:

      You could turn the channel, Seladah. But, oh wait, you’re hearing the same thing on other channels too.

  11. D. Middleton says:

    Shepard needs to go to work for CNN or MSNBC. Maybe his liberal ideas would be more appropriate there. We won’t watch him ever again!! He has no idea how he feels, he works so hard and has a handle on how we feel. So he is not a politician, we didn’t vote for a politician. We voted for a man who would fix this country not grease his palms.

    • Temperance says:

      Russian troll.

    • KP says:

      It’s totally fine to want someone to shake things up in Washington. But why did you back the biggest blowhard moron this country has produced in decades? What has he said or done that gives you even the slightest bit of confidence that he can do this job for four years? I honestly don’t understand.

      Would you also hire a mechanic to pull out your teeth? Or a gardener to fix your hot water tank? Or a baseball player to do your taxes? Or a preschool teacher to give you a nose job? You voted for a barely literate reality TV star who peddles in lies and narcissism to be the LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD – in charge of nukes and Middle East peace deals and Thanksgiving Day turkey pardons. While he is an astonishingly effective salesman, he is – at best – a marginal businessman (bankruptcies, failed casinos) who consistently rides the line between what’s legal and what’s not (Trump University, lawsuits up the wazoo).

      He has no concept of what’s wrong with this country let alone how to fix it.

      And if you don’t think he’s doing it to grease his palms and those of his friends, you’re fooling yourself. Deregulation benefits big business – NOT the working man… Unless the working man doesn’t need clean water or a bank that won’t foreclose on his house for no reason.

      If he were even the slightest bit truthful or humble about the fact that he has no earthly idea how to do this job, I *might* be able to give him the benefit of the doubt on some of the conflicts of interest or believe him when he says he has no investments in Russia or trust that he might hire knowledgable people to guide him… But his cabinet picks are wholly under-qualified (DeVos, Perry) or bought and paid for by special interests (DeVos, Puzder, Tillerson) or racist jerks (Sessions) and he routinely and without hesitation barfs out lies, half-truths, and misinformation (Obama wasn’t born in America, Muslims were cheering 911, crowd size, electoral win margin, employment rate, illegal votes, terrorism is underreported, all negative polls are fake news, the ban was rolled out seamlessly, the ban is not a ban, I’ve been trying to meet with Rep Cummings but he won’t return my calls). These are quantifiable, easily googled and corroborated lies. Some of them are small. Some of them are less small. All of them add up to him not being the least bit fit to run this country or earn the trust of the American people.

      But he nominated a conservative to the Supreme Court so… It’s worth it I guess? *rolleyes*

  12. Priscilla Hehetro says:

    Is unbelievable American President is bullying the media on a national telly serious.

  13. Dotti says:

    Thank you Fox News for standing up for the American people’s right to know the truth. What kind of country do we live in where any negative news is false news and fact don’t exist? Help us and yourself by keeping up the pressure on Trump and get to the truth about Russia and so much more.

  14. Scribe says:

    Oh you people are precious – you attack the anchor but completely disregard the question he asks? And you’re calling him SHEEP? My god, that Koolaid must be strong stuff.

  15. Jack Jaffe says:

    Bravo to Smith for not being afraid to stand up for the public. If our President is dishonest and we adults don’t call him on it, how can we face our children at the dinner table?

  16. R. Brown says:

    Way to go Shep! Glad to see that you have the fortitude and common sense and not afraid to ask questions. Many of your peers are at the trough lapping up the vitriol as if it were real. If all of the news about Flynn was fake, why was he fired? And for all the Christians out there who think that DT shouldn’t have to answer questions, Abraham questioned God.

  17. Jonjeycomms says:

    its just sheppys opinion. Thats all it is. My opinion is that Sheppy is a joke and I wish he would get fired, because hes dead wrong. Trump had and has no ties with russia.

  18. Ron says:

    This makes me happy. At least someone over at Fox News is choosing to drink the water during breaks rather than the koolaid.

  19. Mark N says:

    Well said Mr. Smith. Eventually the yellow journalism will give way to the truth. The President and the media have a responsibility to the people of this nation, so use that privilege wisley. Each of you choose to be on the front line of humanity to either make our world a better place or relay the facts. Your parts should be sacred and used with integrity. Human life depends on your facts and leadership.

  22. James Hendrix says:

    Shep smith is ridiculous.his opinions are no more important than mine.I don’t blame Trump for being wary about his answers to reporters.They have not given him the benefit of a doubt on Anything…

    • Isobel Noble says:

      The media is responsible for getting Trump elected. He should be kissing their feet! They never asked him one hard question or pressed him about his tax returns, they gave him unlimited air time while ignoring the other candidates, and they absolutely gyrated with delight to have him on their shows for one on one interviews. Now that we’re stuck with the orange marmalade man, they are finally beginning to ask the right questions and investigate his various business and private doings. They’re closing the barn door after the cow has beat it outta Dodge. So what I want to know, is: if Trump is found to have colluded with the Russians to get himself elected (committing treason), will Hillary Clinton be given the Presidency?

    • M.Lui says:

      Why should reporters give a known liar – “…the benefit of a doubt on Anything…”??? It is precisely because of his previous comments that fact-checking is being done all the time whenever he speaks or twitters.

    • M. N. Suggs says:

      Shep Smith made some ridiculous assumptions and presented them as fact himself. Obviously all the Trump haters will wallow in his criticisms. He certainly, in my opinion, is not fair or balanced. Trump has only been in office for three weeks, shouldn’t he have a chance to get his feet on the ground and be allowed to appoint his own cabinet before all the judgement falls? Very disappointed in a Fox news reporter or maybe that should be reader.

    • George A Erhard says:

      So, have you ever known a compulsive liar? Honest question, what was your reaction when they started talking? Benefit of the doubt, or “oh no, here we go again…”?

      I for one am glad that some in the Conservative media have finally tired of the “push the BS talking points” routine. That means there’s actual hope of them being journalists first, and Conservatives second.

      And yes, as this happens, the “true Conservatives” will wonder more and more, why all of the crazy stuff “isn’t being reported”… here’s a hint. It’s because the crazy stuff is complete hogwash, and doesn’t deserve headlines, or airtime or clicks, in the first place!

  23. What actually is it that you all are inferring with this interaction with Trump and Russia? Do you believe he is a Russian Sympathizer? Traitor? Looking to destroy America from the inside on Russia’s behalf? A preposterous stretch of the imagination, even for liberals. The Russians hacked the DNC, a serious offense for sure and should be investigated. The DNC brought that upon themselves for not taking stronger steps and the fact that Putin despises Hillary, for whatever reason, is that Trump’s doing? The answer is an emphatic NO!

    The Russians certainly did not influence the election because Hillary received 3 million more votes than Trump; so what gives? I’ll tell you, the Democrats cannot get past the fact that they had already coronated Hillary and she was not up to the task of following through. Classic case of it’s in the bag and oh no! I blew it!

    So now, they are out to get Trump at all cost! The Media claims they are innocent to Trump’s browbeating, but the shoe fits in many cases. The other fact they can’t get use to, is he is not a true Politician. He doesn’t act like one, doesn’t talk like one and act’s too much like a regular citizen who spouts off and says whatever he feels. Not like calculating Politicians who choose their words carefully to dance around questions they prefer not to answer. He also is not polished as we would expect a President to be, but that’s who he is, and those that voted for him don’t care as long as he can get the job done.

    The Democrats are slinging everything they can to upset his Administration and hamper is productivity. They want him to fail badly. The hate coming from the left is unprecedented. Going after Cabinet members, his family and his businesses. Never seen anything like it.

    The left has abandoned commonsense and is focused solely on destroying Trump. The ACA is imploding, Insurance Companies are bailing one by one, the healthy can’t afford the premiums, so they are dropping like flies, the sick remain and many are subsidized, so the whole system is failing, and the left voters want to KEEP IT IN PLACE! Just because Trump wants to replace and fix the situation, they would rather have it falter than give him any credit, they want him to fail they despise him that much.

    America is in a sad state of affairs and the venom is flowing from the left and aimed directly at the Trump Administration and family. This country will pay for this environment dearly, it’s coming, what form, I’m not sure, but we will pay.

    • “The Russians certainly did not influence the election because Hillary received 3 million more votes than Trump”. The fact that Clinton got 3 million more votes than Trumps doesn’t tell us that the Russians didn’t influence the election because we don’t know how many votes she’d have gotten without their influence.

      [Trump acts] much like a regular citizen who spouts off and says whatever he feels.
      The President of the U.S. is NOT a regular citizen, has global and national responsibilities and cannot “spout off and say whatever he feels” without devastating consequences.

      “He also is not polished as we would expect a President to be, but that’s who he is, and those that voted for him don’t care as long as he can get the job done.”
      The problem with this argument is that he CANNOT possibly get the job done if he’s not polished and doesn’t act in a civilized manner because he’ll provoke in others either anger/hostility or ridicule.

    Shep has been getting more Chris Wallace-ey lately. Trump is a bumbling child but still a better choice then Hillary regarding SCOTUS appointments and the military. And if they get rid of him, I’m ok with Pence.

  26. Rick Schmidt says:

    thank you Mr. Smith. We deserately need your voice and like voices to save us from this wanna-be third-world dictator and his henchman

  27. jon Testa says:

    The President is 100% correct, Make America great again.
    Obama’s and the Dems. shadow government have done TREASON.
    Hopefully the DOJ will have the nerve to investigate him and his henchmen.
    We don’t have a Government anymore if they win this attempted coop.

    • Gloria Johns says:

      I’m confused, Jon. The dems have committed treason. The DOJ should investigate whom? What attempted coup are you talking about? This is about as wild as the news conference today.

  28. Maria says:

    CNN is very fake news.

  29. Diane says:

    I bet he won’t be on Fox news for much longer

  30. Ange says:

    Thank you.

    “…. It is the greatest truth of our age: Information is not knowledge…” Caleb Carr . You are a really a comedian . I laugh at you all the time . Try this one Kramer- Wasn’t it your ancestors who said ” … what a nice wooden horse- I’ll sign for it …” Don’ t you love ” Frazier” . He can help you Shep- call in !

  32. Angela says:

    Amen. Smith. Very well put.
    I can’t believe there are people here in this comment section who are actually angry at Smith for his comments,, but i shouldn’t be surprised, sadly. Anyone still defending Trump at this point needs to get a massive clue and wake up. His admministration is shameful, he’s pathetic and immature, the corruption and scandal are ridiculous. There is absolutely NOTHING defensible about him or his administration. Nothing.

  33. David says:

    Trump is the President now for 8 years you will know how we felt as as Obama gave away our country and our money to people Today they the immigrants are walking off their jobs that’s great just keep on walking .
    We the people need to be prepared to support our President any way we can, People thinking they can burn items break windows raise hell and this is a good idea block traffic Da don’t complain when people in fear of their lives runs your butts over.
    Take our country back protesters have at it and there are consequences to your actions.
    We lived 8 years in Obama world now let’s watch as Donald Trump makes America Great Again.

    • Chris Leonardi says:

      “We the people need to be prepared to support our President any way we can”

      Like the right supported Obama? Or was that ok because he was the other party?

    • Disgraceful827 says:

      Hey buddy, next time you whine about immigrants, learn to speak English properly. Christ, my Mexican neighbour speaks better English than you and it’s her second language.

    MR. Shepard Smith: What percentage of Fox News is co-owned by a Saudi prince? (To be more specific, Saudi Prince billionaire Alwaleed Bin Talal) WE, the TV viewers of this country ARE NOT FOOLS! Tell us, the Fox viewers, the real truth about the Saudi’s Salafist connection and ownership of most television stations, including Fox News. It makes good sense that now Fox news decided to attack Trump and support CNN (also co-owned by Prince Bin Talal). Remember, using your own words, Shepard, we are not fools! By the way, Russia is not the enemy, the real enemy are the Islamist Fascists with the main goal of taking over the Western world (perhaps by purchasing all TV stations of the Western world) and controlling our free press by manipulating the news. General Flynn unmasked the Salafist’s hidden agenda of world dominance. Is not a surprise that General Flynn was targeted by the press (owned by Salafists). Russia is not the enemy. They never attacked the US on 9-11. The Saudis did in a blatantly open way and then claimed for 16 years that they are our friends. After 16 years they continue financing attacks inside this country. The Russians never attacked us! You are right: We are not fools!

  35. Susan Foy Spratling says:

    She’s, if you want to get worked about something important, get worked up about this:

    Copied: “The biggest misconception in America today is that “radical Islam” is our biggest threat.
    Jihad can cost American lives.
    Hijrad will cost American it’s nation.

    “A review of information compiled by a Senate committee in 2016 reveals that 72 individuals from the seven countries covered in President Trump’s vetting executive order have been convicted in terror cases since the 9/11 attacks,” writes CIS researcher Jessica Vaughn.

    We understand far too little about Muslims leaving their homes. What is Hijrah? Obama is well educated in the Muslim religion since he studied it while living in Indonesia. He does not want this email to be spread all over the US because he wants us to be totally ignorant of what is really going on with the ISIL movement. All this turmoil now makes sense. Sad, and doesn’t bode well for us at all.

    So what is a Hijrah? Hijrah is when large scale mass migrations become invasions. What is happening in parts of Europe right now, actually appears to be a hijrah as the Quran describes it. This is NOT going to end well. Because it appears the policies of the liberal socialist leaders in Europe and the US do not want to keep their lands from being overrun.

    Why? I couldn’t figure out why other Arab countries (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman, etc.) weren’t taking in refugees, so I started digging.

    Hijrah is jihad by emigration. It means moving to a new land in order to bring Islam there and is considered in Islam to be a holy and revered action. “And whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find on the earth many locations and abundance, and whoever leaves his home as an emigrant to Allah and His Messenger and then death overtakes him, his reward has already become incumbent upon Allah.” Surah 4:100.

    So, if a Muslim dies in the process of immigrating to another country, that’s essentially the same as being a suicide bomber, his reward is automatic. This explains the great eagerness to undertake such a perilous journey.

    Muhammad and his followers emigrated from Mecca to Yathrib/Medina in 622 CE. It was there that he became a military leader though still uneducated. This is where all the commands to commit violence against unbelievers originated. It’s important to note that the Islamic calendar marks this as the beginning of Islam.

    This current massive hijrah was announced last January, although few Muslim countries paid the announcement much attention. A supporter (or member) of ISIS uploaded a document in Arabic that urged Muslims to get to Libya because of its proximity to southern Europe and for the important tactical value of its illegal immigration circuits to facilitate infiltration of European cities. Libya has a long coast and looks upon the southernmost countries of western European, which can be reached with ease by even a rudimentary boat.

    In February, transcripts of telephone intercepts published in Italy said ISIS was threatening to send 500,000 migrants as a “psychological weapon” against Europe. The Italian Minister for the Interior, Angelino Alfano, said at the time, “If the militias of the Caliphate advance faster than the decisions of the international community how can we put out the fire in Libya and stem the migration flows? We are at risk of an exodus without precedent.”

    Also in February, the Turkish intelligence service warned police that up to 3,000 trained jihadists were seeking to cross into Turkey from Syria and Iraq and then travel through Bulgaria and Hungary into western Europe and then into the rest of Europe. Sound familiar?

    In May, a Libyan government adviser warned that Islamic State operatives were being” smuggled to Europe in migrant boats.”ISIS is profiting from the human trafficking trade, forcing boat owners to hand over their profits or be killed. Some ISIS operatives are already sheltered in safe houses in the south of the Europe.

    Groups of men, 17 to 25, from Palestine and Syria, cross into Bulgaria and from there move into the rest of the EU. A former Al Qaeda double agent told the BBC that he knew of two Egyptian brothers who reached Italy from Libya, accompanied by men who were deeply religious and fluent in Italian and French.
    Go watch the videos of those “refugees” again. How many of the “refugees” are 17-25 year old men and of military age? If that doesn’t convince you, we already know terrorists are coming through with the waves of refugees: a week ago five men were arrested attempting to cross the Bulgarian-Macedonian border with Islamic State propaganda, specific Jihadists prayers, and decapitation videos on their phones. They had been posing as refugees.

    UK Independence Party leader Nigel Farage warned: “I fear we face a direct threat to our civilization if we allow large numbers of people from that war torn region into Europe.

    Other Muslim countries are not “taking in” these “refugees” because this is a hijrah into Europe. This is no humanitarian crisis. It is an invasion. Its goal is to transform Europe: over tax its economies, tear down its wealthiest nations, re-draw the demographics and, of course, the culture.

    And our government wants to start letting them into our Country? Obama, having already announced over 100,000 are going to arrive in the USA in 2017.

    Are we all Forest Gumps? WAKE UP AMERICA!

    • Stan Jacobs says:

      The public school programmed masses do not want to hear your message. Since it is the truth it angers them even more. They are more comfortable listening to very critical information about the Kardashians or Lady Gaga; and, the MSM is dishing it out as fast as it can. All the superficial trivia is an effective smoke-screen for the coverup.

    • Stan Jacobs says:

      The liberals and progressives do not want to hear or see your words of exposure. The Hijrah is real but the major media will not ever mention it while filling the air and screens with non-news about The K sisters and Lady Gaga.

    • Substitute “Jews” for “Moslems” and your post reads like a 1930s Nazi propaganda piece. I guess Moslems are this year’s target for hate.

  36. Danee says:

    GOOD FOR YOU! Please keep asking the questions & demanding answers.

  37. Lesley says:

    How many times do you ask the same questions? I am so tired of the media and the left trying to drag down the administration. What will it take to get this country to work together for the good of everyone? How can we believe anything we read about this administration when every
    thing is blown out of portion. This administration will do as good a job as they are can with the tools and corporation they are given. If they are not given what they need we will all fail.

  38. Joe says:

    Shepard – you have a very, very low IQ, the only reason you are on FOX is to be a token homo.

  39. Darla Forney says:

    I always liked listening to Shephard Smith until his temper tantrum today concerning President Trump’s honest comments about the media. Shep definitely showed his bias today and I don’t plan to tune into listen to him in the future.

  40. Lloyd says:

    It appears that Shepard Smith cares about the first amendment of our constitution and the role of the press. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    send this reporter to Canada are cuba he is not fit to even be called a news man

  43. Mladen Hrstic says:

    Thank you Mr. Smith for being a professional reporter and fair, Hats off to you for voicing what America really needs to hear! I am embarrassed to see someone like DT represent the USA to the world! He needs to go back to his Show The Apprentice! He speaks to the nation like he is so smart and the American people are stupid.

  44. W says:

    It’s going to be a long 4 years.

  45. C Michael Croston says:

    Gee,Shep! MY children know better than to defend a perfect stranger! I watched the entire debacle. Ironically, The President channeled my thoughts. How many times and in how many ways can the same questions be asked? “Did you speak with Russia on a box? Ponder Tolstoy with a FOX?” You are not (I’m referring to your ilk) reporting stories start to finish. You are all being sucked-up by the current daily news lead and running with half a story the average Joe doesn’t get. I want to know what Netanyahu said. You want to ask if The President or his father ever spoke to anyone in Minsk. Always a negative tone. Always chaos. Like George Bush being a bumbler only bellicose and belligerent. I hope he treats you like I treat mine when they’re rude.

  46. Kathy Jones says:

    Thank you for giving the people of this country a voice. We feel so helpless that no one is speaking up & demanding answers.

  47. J Coleman says:

    Thank you Mr Smith I knew you would stand up to President Trump

  48. Marci says:

    Wow, a real journalist on the Fake News Network! The only one I can stand to watch.

    • C Michael Croston says:

      He’s not real! He just wants his face on your telephone. Attacking Trump id’s the only way he’ll slash a path through all the other faces…

  49. Helen says:

    If only the press had cared this much and pushed for the truth about Benghazi. Hard for me to have any respect in this sudden desire to tell a story. smh
