She Gets Triggered Over Trump's Statements About Fake News
President Trump’s tongue-lashing of the national media at a press conference Thursdaydidn’t sit too well with Fox News anchor Shepard Smith, who pitched a hissy fit on live television in defense of his fellow news reporters.
“[Trump] 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?” Smith said. “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?” Smith shouted.
Smith chastised the president for spewing “demonstrably, unquestionably, 100 percent, opinion aside, false” statements.
However, despite Smith’s claim that Trump’s campaign staff was on the phone with Russian intelligence “the same day” the hacks were happening, the leaked information from the FBI investigation shows no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials.
“Russia is fake news. Russia — this is fake news put out by the media,” Trump said when asked by reporters at the press conference about reported conversations between his campaign aides and Russian officials.
