Unlike some of his conservative colleagues at Fox News, Shepard Smith isn’t buying that the White House’s relationship with the Russian government is a “nothing burger.”
Smith went on a tirade against the Trump administration on Friday about what he described as “lie after lie after lie” coming from the White House regarding Russia.

“The deception … is mind-boggling,” Smith said to Chris Wallace on camera. “And there are still people who are out there who believe we’re making it up. And one day they’re gonna realize we’re not and look around and go, ‘Where are we, and why are we getting told all these lies?'”
Left speechless, Wallace simply responded: “I don’t know what to say.”
Clearly Shepard Smith had has it up to here with Trump, Russia, and the eight (confirmed) parties that were involved in the 2016 Donald Trump Jr. meeting.
As the Washington Post noted, Smith had either a Howard Beale or a Walter Cronkite moment, depending on your perspective.
