Fox News’ Shep Smith Rips Trump For Bashing Hillary on Classified Info, His “Potentially Far More Dangerous”
Even Fox News has had enough of Trump and his hypocrisy. Shep Smith spent some time this week focusing on past campaign rhetoric from Trump that bashed rival Clinton for her handling of classified information.
Smith began his program with the story that Trump revealed classified intel to the Russian ambassador and Russian foreign minister at the White House last week. “Taking intelligence, given to the U.S. by an ally, sharing it with an adversary in the Oval Office while only that country’s media were in the room,” Smith ranted was unacceptable.
He also spent some time reminding up about Trump’s previous tweets, saying “You may remember, candidate Trump repeatedly bashed Hillary Clinton during the campaign while accusing her of leaking classified information. In the month of July of last year, he tweeted, ‘Crooked Hillary Clinton and her team were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information. Not fit!’”
Smith shared another one saying, “Later that month, candidate trump tweeted ‘Hillary Clinton should not be given national security briefings in that she’s a loose cannon with extraordinarily bad judgement and instincts.’ Now the sitting president is accused of actions that are potentially far more dangerous. In fact our own legal analyst says these are the most serious accusations leveled against a sitting president in the modern era,” Smith said.
Even Fox News knows this is unsettling…. keep it up Trump, who’s going to be left to support you?
