Dem lawmaker praises Fox News anchor for slamming Trump


Shepard Smith of Fox News is enjoying kudos from Democratic California Rep. Ted Lieu after the Fox news anchor slammed the Trump administration’s handling of the investigations into Russian election meddling on the air Friday.

“More liberal propaganda against @realDonaldTrump,” Lieu tweeted out on Saturday. “Oh wait, this is from Shepard Smith w/ @FoxNews. Thank you Shepard for telling the truth.”

Smith is the host of “Shepard Smith Reporting” on the conservative-leaning news network, but he has often criticized President Trump; and his latest diatribe against the Trump administration was a Democrat-worthy doozy.

Smith, who is openly gay, is often accused on social media of being a Democrat.

“Why is it lie after lie after lie?” Smith ranted in reaction to breaking news that there was an eighth person in the room during Don Trump Jr.’s meeting with the Russian lawyer. “If you come on clean – my grandmother used to say, ‘oh, the tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.'”

Calling the Russian lawyer scandal a “mind-boggling deception,” he said, “And there are still people out there who believe we’re making it up, and one day they’re going to realize we’re not.”
