President Trump spent the early part of Sunday morning tweeting at Fox News about the disappearance of Judge Jeanine Pirro and her Saturday night show. Fox News canceled her show and replaced it with some other no-name filler.
Trump told Fox News to get Judge Jeanine back on the air and stop trying to be so politically correct.
Fox News is clearly wrong to allow Shep to opine in a news reporting show. However, they should put him on the opinion shows occasionally to let people see just how batcrap crazy the leftists are, like Juan Williams et al.
With the alphabets declining in viewership, we need to have the craziest, hysterical leftists in some mainstream venue, and Fox is the only one that has a broad viewership.
“Were @FoxNews weekend anchors, @ArthelNeville and @LelandVittert, trained by CNN prior to their rating collapse?” Trump wrote. “In any event, that’s where they should be working, along with their lowest rated anchor, Shepard Smith!”

I have never really liked listening to Shep Smith. He was supposed to be a newscaster, not an opinion contributor. And since President Trump became a real threat the progressive agenda, Shep is the one who has come “unhinged and out of control.” In fact, he has become so obnoxious that I turn off the TV when his show comes on.
Fox News should make him in charge of catastrophic weather disasters only where his exaggerations don’t seem to matter and cancel the show he has. Surely there is someone at that network who could present the news, based on facts, without overshadowing them with personal opinion.
I have wondered for a long time why Shep hasn’t moved to a network where his views are more acceptable and expected, perhaps they won’t have him. And Fox apparently won’t fire him because he would scream discrimination from the rooftops! Only dwindling ratings are going to do him in I’m afraid, and I won’t miss him even a little bit!
