EVER SINCE MEGYN KELLY LEFT FOX NEWS EARLIER THIS YEAR, SHEP SMITH HAS BEEN ARGUABLY THE MOST ANTI-TRUMP HOST LEFT AT THE NETWORK. THIS WEEK, HOWEVER, FOX NEWS ANCHOR CHRIS WALLACE MADE IT CLEAR THAT HE HAS HAD ENOUGH OF SMITH’S TRUMP BASHING.
During a heated exchange on Tuesday, Smith tried to get Wallace to denounce Trump on live television after a gathering the president had with media executives prior to his address to congress. Conservative Tribune reported that Smith refused to take the bait, saying that Trump made the luncheon pleasant and media-friendly as he tried to mend fences with the press.
“There were no fireworks at all. In fact, I thought to myself, if people could see this president, who is different in private than he is in public …” Wallace said before Smith rudely interrupted him.
Smith barked that Trump “wants people to think there’s a major war against people who report facts that he doesn’t like. But when you’re in the room with him, it’s all good. When you’re on TV, he vilifies you and treats you as if you’re doing something wrong when you’re actually doing everything right. That’s annoying.”
It was then that Wallace put Smith in his place, saying, “He’s never done that with me.”
Watch the full exchange in the video above this story. Things REALLY heat up around the 5:00 mark.
