On Friday, Fox News host Shepard Smith had an angry outburst while speaking about the Trump-Russia narrative, but not in the way Fox viewers might have expected.
“I know we haven’t” heard all the story on Trump-Russia, “because there’s news breaking at this moment, Chris,” Smith said to commentator Chris Wallace. The host added that there was an eighth person in the room with Donald Trump Jr. and the Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in 2016.
President Trump’s son-in-law “Jared Kushner filled out his form, I think it’s an F-86, saying who he’d met with and what he’d done,” Smith added. “Very important stuff, you can go to prison for messing it up — you know, intentionally. He went back and added 100 names and places. None of these people made it.”
“We’re still not clean on this, Chris,” Smith lamented. “If there’s nothing there — and that’s what they tell us … why all these lies?”
Here, Smith lost his cool, and for an understandable reason. “Why is it lie after lie after lie? If you’re clean, come on clean,” the host said. “My grandmother used to say, ‘Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.'”
“The deception, Chris, is mind-boggling, and there are still people out there who believe we’re making it up, and one day they’re going to realize we’re not,” he added, forebodingly.
Even Fox News hosts like Shepard Smith are freaking out about the new Trump-Russia revelations. That’s not a good sign.
