On Tuesday night, Fox News thought it was a great idea to include Shep Smith in their coverage of President Trump’s Oval Office address.
I don’t know what they are thinking because Shep is one huge pile of negativity toward the White House and the President. It wasn’t five minutes after Trump finished his speech that Smith started fact-checking several statements.
He fact-checked stats from Trump about violent crime from undocumented immigrants, drug crossings, and more, including Trump talking about the trade deal with Mexico paying for the wall. “That trade deal is not yet complete,” Smith said.
He also pointed out Trump “said he would own the shutdown,” while at one point tonight POTUS blamed the shutdown going on so long on Democrats being unwilling to fund border security.
Smith then spoke with Chris Wallace about whether this makes the case for Trump’s base. Wallace said yes, but the question is whether his base was enough. He pointed out Trump ran on immigration in the midterms and the Democrats won the House.
Well at least Shep made these liberals happy!
