Whenever Shepard Smith’s contract is done with Fox News he ought to look into applying at MSNBC where he’d be more at home.
On Thursday, after Hillary Clinton gave her ridiculous speech about how the “alt right” is full of racists and white supremacists, Fox News’ Donald Trump basher got on his soapbox to agree with her.
“The problem with any attempt to rebut her is that in this case she used Donald Trump’s own words, was historically accurate on his policies, on all reviewed points,” he said.
Wall Street Journal reporter James Grimaldi, Smith’s guest, said he believed Trump would respond by “trading in hyperbole.”
“He trades in racism, doesn’t he?” Smith replied.
This is the latest in a long line of idiotic statements by the anchor that have caused Fox News fans to call for his ousting.
On Wednesday Smith bent over backwards to defend the fact that half the people Clinton met with at the State Department were donors to the Clinton Foundation and he went after the reporter who broke the story.
And back in July, after a black man ambushed Baton Rouge police officers, killing 3, Smith attacked former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal for saying “all lives matter.”
The fans have had it with Smith’s ridiculousness and they aren’t being shy about letting him know.

@ShepNewsTeam @FoxNews Thought Shep was straight news. He says Trump trades in racism? Replace him w/one who can maintain objectivity.

@FoxNews I disagree with Shepard Smith’s opinion of trading racism. Is he a news journalist or a political commentator? No mo’ of him for me
