Fox News anchor Shep Smith blasts Trump: 'It's absolutely crazy'
- Created on 17 February 2017
The President took on the media. Now, some at Fox News are responding.
President Trump held a press conference on Thursday that was rather combative toward the media. He repeatedly called out the press for covering what he called "fake news."
Shortly after the press conference, FOX News anchor Shepard Smith hit back hard. "It's crazy what we're watching every day, it's absolutely crazy. He keeps repeating ridiculous throw away 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," said Smith.
It's worth pointing out that the president did praise Fox News during the press conference.
"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's happening, and we're fools for asking the questions? No, sir, we're not fools for asking the questions, and we demand to know the answer to this question. You owe this to the American people," Smith said.
"You call us fake news and put us down like children for asking these questions on behalf of the American people," Smith said. "The people deserve that answer, at very least," he added.
