Shephard Smith, the openly gay Fox New anchor, has a message for Trump—stop lying! After the President’s press conference on Thursday, Smith could no longer keep his cool as the lies from the White House continued to pile up.
“It is crazy what we are watching every day, it is 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 are 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 are fools for asking those questions? No sir, we are not fools for asking those questions, and we demand to know the answer to this question. You owe this to the American people.”
The press conference was to announce his new pick for labor secretary—Alexander Acosta, since his last selection, Andy Puzder, turned out to be a failure.
Trump then switched gears and continued his usual harassment of the media and the news outlets, saying: “Russia is fake news. Russia — this is fake news put out by the media.” The problem is that these are just words, and they are lies. The truth is in the facts, and unfortunately, Trump won’t face those facts.
