Since Megyn Kelly left Fox News, Shep Smith has been the most outspoken anti-Donald Trump figure left at the network, and he has lost many of his fans as a result. On Friday, he sank to a new low when he turned on one of his own Fox News colleagues in his quest to attack Trump.
Entertainment Weekly reported that Fox News host Judge Andrew Napolitano made headlines a few days ago when he revealed that he has spoken with sources who say British intelligence was involved in wiretapping Trump. This was later quoted by White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer during a press briefing. Smith, however, took it upon himself to throw Napolitano under the bus and act as if he made up this claim.
“Fox News cannot confirm Judge Napolitano’s commentary,” said Smith. “Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind that the now President of the United States was surveilled at any time in any way, full stop.”
Fox News fans immediately let Smith know that they did not like what he did:
@JoeNBC Judge Napolitano on 3/14 said Fox confirmed 3 Intel sources said GCHQ did for BO. Shep Smith lied
