Well, not everyone over at Fox News is brainwashed and shameless.
Or maybe they just decided to spice things up a bit for the sake of getting viewers riled up.
But whatever the case, Shepard Smith had a come-to-Jesus moment on Friday and very nearly lost his shit completely at the “mind-boggling” extent of the deception from the Trump administration.
As WaPo recounts:
Between its “Fox and Friends” morning show and Sean Hannity at night, Fox News has become a haven for those who think this whole Russia thing is nonsense. On Friday morning, Steve Doocy even declared that “the Russia story is starting to fall apart.”

My grandmother used to say when first we practice to — Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. The deception, Chris, is mind-boggling. And there are still people who are out there who believe we’re making it up. And one day they’re gonna realize we’re not and look around and go, Where are we, and why are we getting told all these lies?
And predictably, the Trump faithful are mad at the truth:
Oh, and Alex Jones’ InfoWars is furious:
