BREAKING: Fox News host Shep Smith is now facing the possibility of being fired after he had yet another anti-Donald Trump meltdown on live television.
Smith has spent the past year alienating Fox News fans with his constant deranged attacks on President Trump. He went after the president once again on Monday, this time for his weekend tweets attacking people like Oprah Winfrey. Breitbart reported that Smith began by saying that Trump did not go after Russian President Vladimir Putin or “express concerns that the Russians attacked the United States.”
“The president spent the weekend defending himself, misrepresenting the truth and attacking others from his phone in Florida,” Smith said. “The president attacked the Justice Department, the FBI, and his National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster. He attacked Congressman Adam Schiff, Democrats and the DNC. He attacked Hillary Clinton, President Obama, the previous Congress and the news media before going after Oprah Winfrey.”
“He did not attack Vladimir Putin nor Russia, nor did he express concerns that the Russians attacked the United States,” the host continued. “Nor did he pledge in any way to put measures in place to stop future attacks. The president stormed twitter from Mar-a-Lago after Robert Mueller gave the most concrete evidence yet of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. In one tweet, the president wrote “Very sad the FBI missed all the signals sent out by the school shooter. Very unacceptable. There’s no collusion. Get back to basics and make us all proud.” There is a problem there. FBI officials acknowledged last week the bureau did not properly investigate a tip that the suspected mass murderer had a gun and wanted to kill people, possibly at a school. As the Republican Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina points out, the school shooting and the Russia investigation are two separate issues. The president’s spokespersons have been on television denouncing the Russian meddling, the president has not. Not once, not on camera, not on Twitter, not anywhere.”
Twitter users, however, were not having any of Smith’s nonsense and they immediately called on Fox News to fire him:

Ole #ShepSmith is still hanging on…hoping against hope that somehow, some way, some evidence will surface that shows Trump colluded with Russia. It must keep him awake at night, crying into his beer. #Russiagate #TrumpCollusionNot #MuellerIndictments #BoycottShepSmith

Shep Smith is the reason I don't watch ANY network news any longer. FNC was good while Beck was there but since they removed O'Reilly it's no longer worth putting up with that imbecile.
