Shep Smith launched into yet another rant against Donald Trump’s administration on Monday, and Fox News fans made it clear that they have had enough of the longtime host.
Raw Story reported that during his show this afternoon, Smith wondered once again how Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner could plead ignorance regarding a meeting with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer. This came after it was reported that Kushner was present at a meeting that included Donald Trump Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, who had promised to deliver damaging “confidential” information about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
However, Kushner says “he didn’t even realize what that infamous meeting at Trump Tower was about,” explained Jonathan Lemire of the Associated Press.
“Okay, hang on,” Smith interrupted. “There’s an email, and at the top of that email there is a subject line — let’s look at that subject line. Here it is, this is an email from Donald Trump Jr, sent on Wednesday the 8th of June at noon or so. The subject line: ‘Russia — Clinton — private and confidential.’”
“So what he is saying is he didn’t read deep into the email and we are to believe that he didn’t read the subject line?” he added.
“That is the version he is saying,” Lemire said. “Frankly, Paul Manafort has made a similar case.”
Twitter users immediately fired back to let Smith know that they are tired of his anti-Trump views:
OMG, how can anyone listen to Shep Smith on Fox. He is more obnoxious than Tapper these days. And that's going really low.

Shep Smith is still Fox's insipid clown. The Alfred E Neuman of News Readers, never missing a chance to discredit POTUS. He's a bumpkin.
