Shep Smith Knocks Trump's Habit of Watching 'Fox & Friends'



Fox news anchor Shepard Smith went off on President Donald Trump's administration's handling of the Russian Federation investigation.

The Fox News Channel is widely considered to be the cable news outlet that is most sympathetic to Trump.

Smith sounded fed up while speaking with Wallace. Wallace opined: If you're a fair-minded citizen, you ought to be concerned about the fact that we were repeatedly misled about what this meeting concerned.

Hours before Smith's criticism, Steve Doocy of "Fox & Friends" suggested that "the Russian Federation story is starting to fall apart" while he spoke to White House adviser Kellyanne Conway.

Dollar Falls As Weak US Retail Sales, Inflation Cool Fed Rate Hopes
The loonie was about 0.1 percent weaker early on Friday at C$1.2729 to the dollar but is up nearly 1.1 percent this week. Dow Jones closed up by 0.41 percent, S&P 500 ended up 0.47 percent, Nasdaq finished the day up by 0.59 percent.

He went back and added one hundred names and places. None of these people made it ... Noting that they've been told that nothing came out of the meeting, Wallace explained that these new reports show that the White House and those involved are not being forthcoming with these details until the media comes out with them.

"They tell us there's nothing to this", Smith said, building steam, "that nothing came of it, it's a nothingburger, it wasn't even memorable, I didn't write it down, didn't tell you about it because it wasn't anything so I didn't even remember it!" "If you're clean, come out clean". My grandmother used to say, "When first we practice to - Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive".

Rinat Akhmetshin, a former Soviet spy who became a lobbyist, was also at the meeting in Trump Tower attended by Trump Jr, then-campaign chair Paul Manafort, top adviser Jared Kushner, and Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya. "I don't know what to say", Wallace said. And one day they're going to realize we're not and look around and go, "Where are we?"

"There's been lying about who you talk to, and by lots of people and nearly inevitably and invariably", he said at the time. "The deception is mind-boggling and there are still people out there who believe we're making it up".
