Shep Smith is arguably the most liberal figure left at Fox News, and he shamelessly uses his show to attack Donald Trump relentlessly. Unfortunately for him, however, he’s now learning the hard way that viewers are sick of his anti-Trump nonsense.
Raw Story reported that during his show on Tuesday, Smith claimed that Trump’s actions are “far more dangerous” than Hillary Clinton’s emails ever were. He was referring to claims that Trump revealed classified information to the Russian ambassador and Russian foreign minister during a closed-door meeting at the White House last week.
“Taking intelligence, given to the U.S. by an ally, sharing it with an adversary in the Oval Office while only that country’s media were in the room,” he explained. “No Americans.”
“You may remember, candidate Trump repeatedly bashed Hillary Clinton during the campaign while accusing her of leaking classified information,” Smith later added. “In the month of July of last year, he tweeted, ‘Crooked Hillary Clinton and her team were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information. Not fit!”
“Later that month, candidate trump tweet ‘Hillary Clinton should not be given national security briefings in that she’s a loose cannon with extraordinarily bad judgement and instincts,'” he continued. “Now the sitting president is accused of actions that are potentially far more dangerous. In fact our own legal analyst says these are the most serious accusations leveled against a sitting president in the modern era.”
Unfortunately for Smith, Twitter users made it clear that they do not agree with him. Many of them went so far as to call for Smith to be fired:
