Video: Fox News Host Shepard Smith Goes Rogue, Blasts Trump For ‘Mind-Boggling Lies’

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.”

But on Friday afternoon, a Fox host went off on the Trump administration’s handling of Russia in a way we’ve rarely seen.

Shepard Smith is no stranger to challenging the administration and occasionally launching into personal editorials — including one about refugees back in 2015. But on Friday afternoon, he took it a step further, repeatedly accusing the administration of lying, deception and a coverup.

Watch below as Shepard goes rogue:

And here’s Ted Lieu, a man who has mastered the art of trolling Trump on Twitter:

Transcript:

We’re still not clean on this, Chris [Wallace]. If there’s nothing there — and that’s what they tell us, they tell us there’s nothing to this and nothing came of it, there’s a nothingburger, it wasn’t even memorable, didn’t write it down, didn’t tell you about it, because it wasn’t anything so I didn’t even remember it — with a Russian interpreter in the room at Trump Tower? If all of that, why all these lies? Why is it lie after lie after lie? If you clean, come on clean, you know? 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:

  1. I’m surprised Chris Wallace has lasted this long without being run off on a rail by Trumpians and Republicans from his starting day at Fox. As Chicago born to Jewish kid to to CBS 60 Minutes’ Mike Wallace, the liberal anathema to all things right wing and Republican, and whose step-father was CBS’ president Bill Leonard, who picked Dan Rather to succeed Walter Cronkite as anchor of the CBS Evening News, you’d think there’d be 101 conspiracy theories a day undermining Wallace out the door. He’s one of the few there with intellectual spark.

  2. ….and FOX was swamped with calls from the cult demanding they fire Shep! At least it is entertaining me!

  3. The smoke from the smoking gun is dissipating, and that worries the news media, whose livelihood depends on feeding the masses the drivel that they desire. It took about seven years for the silly Whitewater-Clinton scandal to run out of gas, so maybe the Trump Obstruction of Justice thingy will die much sooner. It lacks money and sex.

    • Following along with your analogy, the smoke dissipating will just let us see the bodies and bullet holes more clearly

  4. Anon, you just don’t have enough patience. trust me, it ain’t even near over! And the media guys are plumb exhausted — let them get a day’s rest before assface does or says something else to screw everything up again!
