Frustrated FOX News Anchor Shepard Smith Drops 8 Minutes Of Epic Truth Bombs On Live TV

Alex Mohajer

Published

on

Moments ago, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith unleashed 8 minutes of truth bombs during a live segment of his daytime cable news commentary TV show “Shepard Smith Reporting.” The moment happened just following the live broadcast of Donald Trump’s insane press conference. These wacky occurrences have become frequent directly preceding or directly following an event that Mr. Trump would like to deflect attention away from, though today’s performance only seemed to highlight the very things he was seeking to minimize.

And today, Shepard hit his breaking point, challenging Trump to tell the truth, admitting that Russians hacked the elections with the express goal of hurting his opponent and that questions as to whether he was aware and when he was aware of the hacking is pertinent and that Americans have a right to know.

Check out the full 8 minute segment below.

    The media needs to stop reporting on his lies and BS, especially after all the insults he slings at them.

    just want to say “thank you” to Shepard Smith. The American public needs more of this.

    Let’s stop calling them untruths. Call them what they are, lies. He is LYING. Just because he see or hears something on Infowars, then sees comments about it on Twitter, doesn’t make it true.

    Unemployment at “I’ve heard 45%”. Really? You heard that? Lie.

    It wasn’t raining on Jan 20, 2017. “God wouldn’t let it rain on me”. Eh, sorry, but those plastic things were poncho’s and umbrellas, because it was raining. Lie.

    Almost 70% of what he says is at least, in part, UNTRUE. Lie…

    What’s really amazing is that even Fox News is starting to call him on it… (and you all invented him)

    8 minutes of epic truth bombs? You are delusional. All you have is the media, who failed for EIGHT freaking years to nail a serial liar to the wall suddenly acting like they are the epitome of truth and fair dealings. And I don’t even LIKE Trump. What a bunch of pathetic little snot you’ve all become. Liars and hypocrites pandering to the left.

    The MSM does not correctly report news either. Opinions are put out there, the news clips are not fully put out there to show the whole talking, the stories are biased and there are many stories that are printed that only show one side.

    Why the upset, REPORTERS and NEWS need to report on the whole event, not skewing what they, the media, wants or thinks what people want to hear or see. Also, the media thumps on the President every chance they can get. Let us get the news, but fully report on the issue or event where it is not biased. That is the problem.

    Don’t need a second-grade bully to act as our president. He’ll shoot himself in the foot soon.

    WOW…Shepard Smith…thank you so much for standing up for what is right. Telling the Truth. I sometimes have a problem with Fox News but you have restored my faith in reporting. Shepard, please tell the truth regardless of anything else…after all, if Fox kicks you out, comeon over to Msn or Msnbc.

    You should get a grip. The fibs not lies is the President being proud of the fact he beat everyone to get where he is. He beat dems press republicans and the like of you. Shepherd keeps saying that the Russians helped him and he made it happened. There is NO proof but you guys insist. Wikileaks did it alone. Of course he accepted the help. You would if you had it. You are the sorry sic

    I miss Walter Cronkite’ s style. We need calm reporting which does not encourage drama for ratings. This he said she said and often sarcasstic reporting is annoying.

    Aren’t most Americans sane enough to be thoroughly embarrassed at Trump as President? He’s made America the laughing stock of the world. He has destroyed the credibility of what was the highest office in the land. Every day is just another series of gaffs and lies. Even his lavish lifestyle is costing the taxpayers millions of dollars. Why isn’t Melania at the White House like every other first lady? Why is the taxpayer funding security for his sons when they are on Trump business? Why are government functions being held at Trump resorts? He’s a very bad joke.

  27. Mike Fratto

    February 17, 2017 at 11:55 am

    No. They need to continue reporting his lies. The media needs to report they are, in fact, lies. If the media stops reporting on them the people will think the lies are facts. This was the major issues during the entire campaign.

  28. Patrick

    February 17, 2017 at 11:56 am

    Trump has totally demeaned the office of the President and the memory of those who occupied that office. The West Wing now is a total ‘CLUSTER F–K’ and the United States and those who voted for this clown are a global laughing stock!!
    A crying shame!!

    It’s just really disconcerting how there’s an entire faction of people who are not aware that 17 intelligence agencies have all agreed that hacks occurred at the directive of the highest echelons of the Kremlin with the express purpose of harming Hillary and benefiting Donald. We’ve also seen joint Intelligence reports declassified. There’s plenty of evidence. Stop watching Fox NewS and the alt-right! https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&ved=0ahUKEwj01ouu_JfSAhVKiFQKHaG4B5MQFgggMAE&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.nytimes.com%2Finteractive%2F2017%2F01%2F06%2Fus%2Fpolitics%2Fdocument-russia-hacking-report-intelligence-agencies.html&usg=AFQjCNHbdPjo5y92vP8raWICSQraCddcpw&sig2=LjBxgB5hCuCk2WeJVs1RZg

    What I don’t hear mentioned are the facts. It’s a fact that Wikileaks uncovered collusion between the democratic party and the main stream media. It’s a fact that the American public was outraged and confused by the fact that through the same leaks, it was discovered that the democratic nomination for president was rigged. It’s a fact that Donna Brazil was caught feeding the dems debate questions. These discoveries were barely mentioned in the media, but let the POTUS exaggrate his winning pergentage and everyone loses their minds. He has answered the question of if his people were on the phone with the Russians and he has answered “no”, over and over and over….but the media is not having any of that…..This president is unlike any other we have had. He is not in anybody’s pocket and is not giving “lip service”. He is telling it like it is and the people who don’t like it are either part of the problem and thus are feeling the pressure or are part of the media who’s agenda falls in line with the left. Either way, do the job you are paid to do, report the news, don’t fabricate it.

    They had to keep asking because he didn’t tell the truth. Do you even know the truth? Read and educate yourself before you pop off at others.

    Kudos to Shepard Smith for having the integrity and guts to say this on his network. Maybe more and more trumpers will come to realize how ridiculous this is. My one beef is at the end he kept chiming in with things like ‘the judge’s fault’ or ‘paid demonstrators’. I realize he was just mocking trumps lies but problem is many may not. That’s how we got here. Too many people just think repetition is all it takes to create a fact. Repeating those lies and deflections without context or explaining the mocking just lets people pretend it is true.

    Saw a great meme today. Trump should just start saying he already built the wall. At this point his supporters will just choose to believe it and it would be way cheaper.

  45. Donna Alvarado

    February 17, 2017 at 3:29 pm

    So do you not having a problem with trump’s sarcasm, mean spirited angry tirades and his lies? I mean there is a lot of frustration with trumps idea that he can say whatever he wants no matter how untrue and then gets angry when he’s called out for it. It’s like he thinks the press (by extension the people) answer to him as opposed to here answers to the press (by extension the people). It’s pretty ass backwards and frustrating for anyone half intelligent and sane.

    I’m not sure what you think is going to happen however, President Trump IS a business man and within a short time he has gotten down to business to keep America safe. That means safe for all of the crap, violence and total hate being produced by people. You could not act or say threads against the establishment of any other country and not be jailed, shot, tortured or deemed a criminal. This are antics of terrorism against the United States of America.

    America is becoming a nation of liars and cheaters: Lance Armstrong, Barry Bonds, Tom Brady, Bill Clinton, etc etc etc. Trump is just an extension of that. Maybe that is what Americans now wants? Lie, cheat, steal, as long as you win and come out on top? Donald Trump is all Seven of the Deadly Sins wrapped up in one person – except maybe sloth. He is humanity, in a way. Sad to say. This is what has come to.

    Mollusk = “an invertebrate of a large phylum that includes snails, slugs, mussels, and octopuses. They have a soft, unsegmented body and live in aquatic or damp habitats,”

    Is that how you see yourself?

    If Fox News and all the other right wing and alt_right cable news and websites in all their combined, conspiratorial nastiness couldn’t pin any lies on Obama in eight years, then maybe Obama didn’t lie.

    Obama is probably the most transparent, honest president America has had, at least in the modern media sense.

    Most of the people I know who support Trump are sad, disillusioned, failed. But I’m from coastal California, where Trump is at his most irrelevant. He’s not talking to me, or anyone I know, really.

    If they did that, Chloe, there would be nothing else for them to report on in regards to trump. They need to ratchet it up a few hundred percent and start ripping him a new one on a daily basis, until he stops.

I can’t and will not stay in the sidelines while the country that I fought for is being destroy by lies and those whom don’t want or maybe will not accept the true. We as american made a mistake to elect a terrible human being as our president to be our representative. If I learn something in my life is that you should accept your mistakes, learn from your mistakes and rectify them. BTW I din’t vote for DT.

    Russia exposed the ugly truth of the Democratic Party. That is true. I don’t think anyone really argues that. To argue Hillary lost because lies were revealed, election tampering was exposed and racism was put on display is disingenuous and an exercise in redirection. Try going after all the ugly that was revealed and the hacking with equal vigor. The Media has become the enemy of The People. Every outlet let’s their political bias drive their reporting. Every talking head has to add their editorial opinion to their news reports. Report a fact and don’t put your spin on it. It’s an interesting exercise to watch a speech, listen to CNN spin and listen to FOX spin and have neither one agree with what I just watched. Report what was said, not what YOU THINK was meant. Journalism is dead. All the talking heads are just spouting editorials and trying to present them as fact. Until you all earn credibility by reporting FACTS and leave your political bias at home you will never be considered journalists again. I personally believe an unbiased media that reports facts without all the editorial content would be greatly beneficial.

    February 17, 2017 at 8:49 pm

    Two truths:

    1. I doubt Shepard Smith says anything on Fox without it being vetted from the very top. This is some kind of gamesmanship, or maybe Fox hedging its bets in case Trump falls.

    2. America is overloaded with truly gullible, dumb people. The proles are in control.

  60. Scott Todd

    February 17, 2017 at 10:46 pm

    skw so you are going to believe Russia over our CIA/FBI and 17 intelligence agencies. Ok so Trump chews everyone out, even women who he sexually assaulted. He’s downed women, blacks, latinos, actors, politicians, people with disabilities. and on and an and on,. Why not one word against a country who hacked into anything that we have, gop or democrats. A true patriot would be mad, an uneducated red neck pion would side with the lying enemy. And I sorry anyone who can say Trump does not lie, is a ball face liar. He lies almost 100% of the time. We know that, stop lying and learn that for you anyone to vote Republican unless you are filthy rich is an oxymoron! It would be like chickens voting for Colonel
    Sanders.

There is a spirit of lying over this country that is wicked and scary! Thank you for standing against it. Please keep up the outstandlingly good work.

    Trump is trying to silence the Americans and keep us in a shed and keeping us shutout from all media. This is cazy. This is our country and we are a Free country and we do get to hear whats happening in our world. Trump is not behaving like a president and demoralizing our reporters and all the Nrws stations is deplorable. Who does that?? This is not what a president does, and who voted for him??? Media needs to ban togethet and keep reporting the news as they see it and hear it and as it is the truth and if not tell us what the truth really is.

  68. Lisa Ozturk

    February 18, 2017 at 6:28 am

    How about circulating a petition to have President Trump removed from office. He is a disaster and the downfall of this country if we allow him to continue as he has done. He is the biggest mistake this country has ever made. He will alientate us from our allies. He will spread hate, bigotry, and inflame already tenuous relations where Muslims and Islam are concerned. I see everything this country stands for being held hostage by President Trump and his administration and for the love of God, get rid of Kellyanne Connway. She is another disaster and could not talk herself out of a wet paper bag.

  69. Lisa Ozturk

    February 18, 2017 at 6:39 am

    Keeping us safe?? Total hate produced by people??? The only hate being produced is by the President himself. This man is a time bomb waiting to go off. Make America great again???? America is great for all that we stand for. Read the Consitution. President Trump is making a mockery of it. Everything that America stands for is what brings people here to live. It has been going on now for over 250 years. If you want America great again, then let the Constitution dictate how this country should be run. There are few, if little Americans, who can honestly say that they do not have ancestor who came to America for a better life. So all these people screaming, yelling, protesting, and spewing hate need to take a long, hard look at thier own tree to see where it began and I can guarantee you it was not the United States of America.

    It’s not an “untruth”. It’s a lie. “False” is a nicer way of saying it. CALL IT WHAT IT IS. G-d knows, you called Obama a liar often enough.

    Thank You Mr. Smith for telling it like it is . The people that have any COMMON SENSE knows all the lies and knows that he screams fake news , another lie he tells. Someone is going to get enough and will GO OFF, and in turn will be in major trouble. It is going to happen, ESPECIALLY if they pass that any mental patient can have a gun.. Trump is a sick,sick man and needs to be taken out in a straight jacket. Keep reporting the REAL news, Please smile when he attacks you because this shows that he is becoming more and more unraveled. And YOU are doing YOUR JOB !! KEEP IT UP !! YOU are MARVELOUS !!
