Fox News anchor Shepard Smith on Thursday criticized President Trump for bashing reporters gathered at a lengthy Thursday press conference, calling on him to answer legitimate questions from news outlets. "(Trump) keeps repeating ridiculous throwaway 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. Really?" Smith said. "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 was happening and we´re fools for asking the questions?" Trump was repeatedly asked
Comments: The hack Shemp has behaved terribly lately, but this took the cake. He was completely unhinged. Of course the dutiful John Bussey from the WSJ was totally in agreement, as well as the guy from Reuters. What a shock. s/o His behavior was outrageous and his extreme criticism of Trump was way over the top. Trump´s refusal to answer questions and divulge information regarding what exactly he would do related to Russia, Iran, etc. was legitimate.
I have stopped watching fox news completely now. they are neither fair nor balanced and if any thing very left of center now. None of Fox´s talking heads has anything nice to say about President Trump and are always twisting what words President Trump has spoken. And when they have their "non partisan panels" almost to a T all but one are very socialistic in their leanings, and they always over talk the more right person.
Contd. He was correct in pointing out that Obama and his ilk told the enemy in advance everything they were going to do. In addition, there has been NO reliable, concrete information given what was in the alleged conversations with representatives in Russia. That is reckless and irresponsible for him to cite such nonconfirmed information that was allegedly in those leaks.
I wish that jerk Shemp would just leave and go to MessNBC or CNN. They would be a much better fit. He really is shameful and his rant was appalling. Or better yet they should fire him. He is supposed to be a ´news´ anchor, not a ranting commentator.
Sorry, Shep, he did give answers. He did not give away his plans to deal with Russia in case of problems. That does not mean he has no plans. Why hasn´t any reporter talked about Hillary´s approval of Russia´s getting our uranium or about her cheating during the debates. He talked about those things but no one picked up on it. They keep asking the same questions over and over about Gen. Flynn after Pres. Trump answered them. The reporters ask questions over and over if they don´t like the answers. I am sooooo tired of the TV news shows. They are sooooo boring. Trump was entertaining.
Is Fox News trying to run all of us to another news source? Where do O´Riley numbers come from? He doesn´t report news any longer, he makes news. The talking heads have become what we call in the real military, heads are for body waste disposal. Smith, Rivera, Williams.. Lucianne offers more news in one segment than Fox News does by repeating the same news until something new drops in front of the network. Hurry back Ailes!
Hussien signed away our sovereignty behind closed doors. Sheep never said hussien owed the American people answers about doing that. Oh and did shep ask hussien what is in the Iran deal. I don´t recall him asking about that. I really believe the American people should know the details in that mess.
Did SS ever tell BO ´You owe the American people answers´? About Bengazi, his birth certificate, his US citizenship (or lack of citizenship), Fast & Furious, Iran deal, Affordable Health Care hoax, open borders, muslim connections, IRS (Lois Lerner) etc.
Maybe "Shemp" is upset because one of his boyfriends was taken to task during the presser. Or maybe he´s trying to maintain credibility with the gay community. It must be hard to work for Fox and try to be accepted by the mainstream LGBTQABCDEFG...XYZ community.
I´m with the others who have stopped watching FOX news. I find Fox Business News to be more informative anyway. Not just for business. I find Maria Bartiromo and Stuart Varney very good to listen too as well as Lou Dobbs and Charles Payne mentioned by #26 above.
I think Shep is the one who owes the American people an explanation. Shep was hired the same way Elizabeth Warren was hired at Harvard. Liz was hired because Harvard needed a woman American Indian. Shep was hired at FOX because they needed more "diversity" to balance out all the playmates in the anchor desk. "Not that there is anything wrong with that".
PS...You are still never going to get a Pulitzer Prize for crying during Hurricane Katrina.
Something very weird happened to 75% of Fox´s staff when Trump ran for president. Their hatred for Trump clouds their brains. No one watches Shep so he has to make statements to get his name in the news, just like McCain & Graham.
Robert Mueller, the newly appointed special counselor in the Russia investigation, has reportedly been briefed on the memos former FBI Director James Comey used to document his private conversations with President Trump, CNN reports. The New York Times broke the news last week that Trump reportedly asked Comey to let “go” of his agency’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. One memo Mueller reviewed confirms the Flynn report, a person familiar with the matter told the news outlet. Comey reportedly maintained a paper trail to document what he viewed as improper attempts by the president to influence the
Following the death of former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes last week, tributes were offered in print and on air both from likely, and perhaps unlikely, sources. But in the opening paragraph of a New York Times op-ed out Monday, Monica Lewinsky said that she did not plan to have her piece serve as another Ailes obituary. “It is, I hope, instead an obituary for the culture he purveyed — a culture that affected me profoundly and personally,” Lewinsky wrote. Calling it a “culture of exploitation,” Lewinsky blasted the environment at Fox News and other cable news outlets — where
House Oversight Committee chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) announced on Twitter that he will postpone the congressional hearing he had planned for this week, where former FBI director James Comey was expected to speak. (Snip) Chaffetz’s tweet indicates that Comey wants to consult Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor heading the special counsel that is looking into whether President Trump‘s 2016 campaign was aligned with Russia during the election. Comey is expected to testify about his recent firing before the Senate Intelligence Committee in the coming days. A new report from CNN tonight says that Mueller has been briefed on “the contents
Hacker Kim Dotcom is saying that he knew murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich – and Rich gave the political party´s trove of emails to Wikileaks. ´I knew Seth Rich. I know he was the Wikileaks source. I was involved,´ Dotcom cryptically tweeted on Saturday. Conspiracy theories surrounding the death of Rich, who was gunned down in D.C. last July, are again swirling thanks to Dotcom´s bold, and unsubstantiated claims, and a debunked news report from local station Fox5. Last Monday, Fox5 ran a piece in which an individual, Fox New legal commentator, Rod Wheeler, said it was ´confirmed´
Fox News staffers are growing increasingly dismayed as network star Sean Hannity and others continue to promote the unfounded conspiracy theory that Seth Rich, a Democratic National Committee staffer was murdered last year for talking to WikiLeaks. The Daily Beast spoke to nearly a dozen reporters, pundits, and hosts inside Fox News who all conveyed the same sentiment: Hannity is “embarrassing” the network, and the promotion of the Rich conspiracy theory is senselessly cruel to a grieving family. “ARE WE STILL AIRING THAT SH*T?!” one Fox News political reporter, who says they are furious that the conservative cable-news giant is
Now that Robert Mueller has been appointed special counsel to investigate if Russia influenced the 2016 presidential election it’s worth reiterating his misguided handiwork and collaboration with radical Islamic organizations as FBI director. (Snip) The agency eliminated the valuable anti-terrorism training material and curricula after Mueller met with various Islamic organizations, including those with documented ties too terrorism. Among them were two organizations— Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR)—named by the U.S. government as unindicted co-conspirators in the 2007 Holy Land Foundation terrorist financing case. CAIR is a terrorist front group with extensive
Michelle Obama has been enjoying her Italian vacation in style—and got a welcome fit for a star as she and her husband visited the city of Siena, Tuscany today. The former First Lady looked especially glamorous as she stepped out in a flirty shoulder-baring top, paired with a high-waisted khaki-colored pants. Her husband, who previously went out for a scenic bike ride in the countryside, had ditched his sporty outfit for a polished shirt and pants. A massive crowd cheered after spotting the former presidential couple, with some fans yelling: ´President Obama!´ Scroll down for video The pair, who arrived in Italy Friday
Outgoing California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton performed the only action left to an impotent, leftist, cadre head in a lawful society. He shouted. He likely would’ve preferred some kind of violent action, but instead he simply advocated for one. Specifically, he invited the listening-impaired translators onto the stage Saturday at the California’s Democratic Party convention in Sacramento to “thank them,” and then, as they were flashing their hands in applause for his service to the party, he put his middle finger in the air and lead a chant, “F*** Donald Trump!”
RUSH: Cleveland, Ohio. Lisa, it’s great to have you. How are you doing? (Snip) Others are claiming that he was murdered because he was the leak from the DNC to WikiLeaks. And this story is now starting to get legs, that Seth Rich was murdered, it was a contract hire killing because he was leaking to WikiLeaks, he was the one. May have been a Bernie supporter. The only colluding and rigging here, folks, is the Democrat primary election. The DNC rigged it against — do you know that there’s a class-action lawsuit against the DNC over this now? There
A marina blue 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe bought by a Vietnam War hero and maintained by his son sold for $675,000 at an Indianapolis auction Saturday. The unrestored sports car, with 8,553 miles on it, was bought by Carmel resident Gary Runyon at Dana Mecum’s 30th Spring Classic at the State Fairgrounds. "It was very exciting but also very, very difficult," to part with the car, said its owner, Matt Litavsky. "It was all kind of a haze." Litavsky´s father, Keith Richard Litavsky, bought the car after returning from the Vietnam War with two Purple Hearts in the 1960s. He cared for
Fox News dolt, Juan Williams praised the people in government who are leaking to the media in order to damage the Trump administration. He also told the leakers to call him because leakers are ‘good for democracy’. (Snip) Juan Williams: “Just give me a moment here to say if you have a leak please call me at FOX News. I’m all for leakers. I think leakers are good to contribute to democracy. I don’t think trying to undermine government but I don’t think we condemned Obama for going harshly against people who were disclosing information acting as if they were
Although many on the left have expressed their approval of Robert Mueller being appointed as special counsel to investigate possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Alan Dershowitz thinks Mueller could actually vindicate President Donald Trump, rather than bring about his downfall. On "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Dershowitz, a legal scholar and Harvard University Law School professor, said he doesn´t see a crime that necessitated the appointment of a special counsel. He explained that it would not be criminal, even if it happened, for the Trump campaign to have collaborated with the Russians in an effort to get their candidate
While former president Barack Obama hit the links on the first day of their Tuscany vacation, his wife Michelle was spotted taking in the sights in Montalcino almost 70 miles away. The former first lady wore an off-the-shoulder pink top, with white ripped jeans and white sandals as she wandered around the stunning Italian hill town on Saturday, accompanied by members of her security team. Michelle was later seen tucking into some Italian gelato before she climbed into her waiting car. Meanwhile her husband Barack enjoyed a day of golf at the exclusive Castiglion del Bosco course, during the Obamas´
Actor Robert De Niro delivered an outburst of anti-Trump vitriol just before the Saturday night debut on HBO of The Wizard of Lies, a movie in which he plays Bernie Madoff. He told USA Today that Madoff’s story still “resonates” thanks to President Donald Trump and that while what Madoff “did was horrible and awful; monstrous,” Trump is worse than the Ponzi scheme criminal since he’s a “bad con artist” who every day is “doing something that is absolutely — what word can I use? He’s just a slob. He’s a pig.” From the top of the article by Patrick
Two leading Republican senators on Sunday said President Trump is making a mistake by failing to more forcefully confront Saudi Arabia over the country’s treatment of women and other human rights issues in the Middle Eastern nation. Mr. Trump’s highly anticipated address in Saudi Arabia on Sunday will focus heavily on the fight against terrorism but will include little in terms of human rights. While administration officials say the topic has been discussed in private settings, critics say that’s simply not enough. “America is the unique nation in history, with all of our errors and failings and mistakes we’ve made
Notre Dame students are planning to walk out during the Vice President´s commencement address. The students are planning to leave ´respectfully and quietly´ before Mike Pence delivers his speech on Sunday, and are organizing the walkout because they disagree with his administration´s stance on immigration, gay rights and the criminal justice system. The organizers of the walk out are a part of a student group in Notre Dame called We Stand For ND. For four days, this group has galvanized support for their plan through Twitter and Facebook, to stand with the ´vulnerable´ members in their community. ´The participation and
SOUTH BEND — Vice President Mike Pence on Sunday delivered a call for leadership to the University of Notre Dame´s newest graduates, urging them "to be men and women of integrity and values" and to stand up against the suppression of free speech. "Notre Dame is a campus where deliberation is welcomed, where opposing views are debated, and where every speaker, no matter how unpopular or unfashionable, is afforded the right to air their views in the open for all to hear," Pence told students at the commencement ceremony. But about 150 people, about half students and the other half
Ex-Vice President Joe Biden slammed Trump for his ´coarse rhetoric´ and causing ´political chaos´ during a college commencement speech on Sunday. Biden was speaking to the 480 students of Maine liberal arts institution Colby College when he launched the attack on the current administration. He complained that the GOP had spent the election appealing to the ´baser instincts´ and fears of the electorate, stoked ´our darkest emotions,´ and turned Muslims, immigrants and transgender people into scapegoats for a struggling working class. After calling on students to return to the ´basic principles´ of the Constitution, he then congratulated them one by
While Barack was hitting the links in Tuscany, Michelle Obama was hitting the sights about 67 miles away ... and looking good in pink doing it. The former First Lady was strolling around in Montalcino, Italy this weekend -- and she appeared to be the talk of the small town. You can´t blame the locals ... she kinda stood out with the pink and white. Plus ... it´s Michelle Freakin´ Obama. She´ll always turn heads. Michelle snagged a second for herself during a food break, but then it was right back into the international spotlight. Togliti di mezzo!
On July 8, 2016, 27 year-old Democratic staffer Seth Conrad Rich was murdered in Washington DC. The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone. Shortly after the killing, Redditors and social media users were pursuing a “lead” saying that Rich was en route to the FBI the morning of his murder, apparently intending to speak to special agents about an “ongoing court case” possibly involving the Clinton family. Seth Rich’s father Joel told reporters, “If it was a robbery — it failed because he still has his watch, he still has his
China killed or imprisoned 18 to 20 CIA sources from 2010 to 2012, hobbling U.S. spying operations in a massive intelligence breach whose origin has not been identified, the New York Times reported on Saturday. Investigators remain divided over whether there was a spy within the Central Intelligence Agency who betrayed the sources or whether the Chinese hacked the CIA´s covert communications system, the newspaper reported, citing current and former U.S. officials. The Chinese killed at least a dozen people providing information to the CIA from 2010 through 2012, dismantling a network that was years in the making, the newspaper
A Project Baltimore investigation has found five Baltimore City high schools and one middle school do not have a single student proficient in the state tested subjects of math and English. (Snip) It’s a school where only half the students graduate and just a few dozen will go to college. Last year, not one student scored proficient in any state testing.
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia - First lady Melania Trump´s fashion choices got rave reviews in local Saudi Arabian press Sunday, despite forgoing the customary headscarf. Both the first lady and first daughter Ivanka Trump have been closely watched in Saudi Arabia for both style and substance. [snip] On Sunday, the first lady conducted a few solo events while her husband continued bilateral meetings with the Gulf Cooperation Council. She visited the American International School in Riyadh and an all-women General Electric service center, tweeting out images from both visits, calling the visits an "honor" and praising "international perspective and education to
Somebody, please explain to Jake Tapper about Arabs and the “strong horse.” Osama bin Laden explained it pretty economically years ago, but that’s a message that is difficult for liberals living in a fantasy world to grasp. After all, Barack Obama had a Muslim father, and he’s a “person of color” (one of the most annoying expressions in the English lexicon, casting Caucasians as colorless), so there must be some kumbayah, right? Jen Psaki, to whom Tapper asked his question, is in no position to explain, as she first tries to grab credit for the arms deal Trump just announced
