Fox News anchor Shep Smith excoriated Donald Trump on Thursday,
observant a boss “misrepresented” a law about his
phone calls with two unfamiliar leaders progressing this year.
Transcripts of a dual phone calls from Jan revealed
scarcely quarrelsome conversations with President Enrique
Peña Nieto of Mexico and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull of
Australia. At one point, Trump called a sell with Turnbull
“unpleasant” and pronounced he elite his review with Russian
President Vladimir Putin.
The transcripts seemed to endorse coverage of a dual phone calls
during a time — coverage that Trump derided as “fake news.”
“Thank we to Prime Minister of Australia for revelation a truth
about a really polite review that FAKE NEWS media lied
about,” Trump tweeted
on Feb. 3. “Very nice!”
On Thursday, Smith didn’t let Trump off a hook.
“The media did not lie. We reported the truth,” Smith
said. “Then President Trump skewed a truth, and
not for a initial time. Now the White House is focusing
on a leaks that let a universe know a truth.”
Although Fox News has been a arguable source of positive
coverage of a White House, Smith hasn’t shied divided from
critique. Last month, he
vented on-air after media reports suggested that
some-more people attended a assembly between Donald Trump Jr. and a
Kremlin-linked Russian counsel than the White House
creatively certified to.
“Why is it distortion after distortion after lie?” Smith pronounced on Jul 14.
“There are still people who are out there who trust we’re
creation it up,” Smith said. “And one day they’re gonna realize
we’re not and demeanour around and go, Where are we, and because are we
removing told all these lies?”
