Fox News fans are calling for Shep Smith to be fired today after he slammed President Donald Trump for blaming both sides for the Charlottesville violence.
Mediaite reported that Smith whined that Trump is bringing together Americans, but not in the way he intended.
“Now many Republicans and Democrats are now uniting in their criticism of the President of the United States, after his reprehensible comments about Charlottesville,” Smith said. “Comments in which he blamed both sides for the violence of the Nazis and the KKK. Comments which a former Ku Klux Klan leader praised. Now some of the presidents own party are lining up to place blame where they say it actually belongs, on the white supremacist and the neo-nazis.”
He then played a clip of Trump saying, “You had some very bad people in this group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides.”
“So far we’ve been unable to find the very fine people protesting with the white supremacists,” Smith said.
“An American president has done nothing like that in generations, and today the pressure is on from all segments of our society,” the Fox News host concluded.
Twitter users immediately fired back at Smith:
SHEP SMITH is completely UNHINGED, UNWATCHABLE, not "fair & balanced" – closet Hard-LEFT next we will see him broadcast in his ANTIFA get-up https://t.co/kTh0nkdy6C
