Fox News host Shepard Smith has been trying to pander to liberals by regularly attacking Donald Trump for months. Now, however, it looks like this has finally come back to bite him.
On a recent episode of his show, he accused Donald Trump’s administration of orchestrating a “cover-up” over the actions of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. This came after the ranking members of the House Oversight Committee said Flynn appears to have violated the law by neither asking permission nor reporting funds he received from Russian organizations and the Turkish government.
“The situation is unprecedented,” Smith said Tuesday. “Never in American history has a man so close to the president, on his cabinet, the national security adviser no less, been accused of committing a crime by taking money from a foreign entity, much less one connected to the Russians.”
“General Flynn received money through an entity that was from the Russians. And what they want to know is, was there collusion?” the Fox News anchor continued.
He went on to accuse Trump’s White House of “giving the appearance” of a lack of cooperation in the Flynn investigations, which could imply “they’re trying to cover something up.”
The fans, however, weren’t having any of it.
@ShepSmith shut up! You go on and on and on. You R suppose 2 say news not say it over and over. You really don't know what will happen.

Shep Smith is the most vocally anti-Trump personality left at Fox News, and viewers have just let it be known that they are sick of seeing him bash our president every day.
