Fox News host Shep Smith has clearly been rehearsing his act for his next job as an MSNBC anchor by never failing to take an opportunity and try to turn it against Republican President Donald Trump.
The host of Shepard Smith Reporting was up to his old tricks, this time cynically using the ISIS concert bombing in Manchester, England as a springboard for his Trump-hating liberal agenda. Thankfully, former CIA Director James Woolsey was on hand to knock some sense into Shep.
Woolsey brought up the fact that the suicide bomber behind the attack was identified as a 23 year old Libyan named Salman Abedi with ISIS connections. Said James, “Things are kind of coming to a head. I think the radical Islamists — and I would call them that — have decided to pick up the pace with the terrorist attacks and I think we’ll probably see some more.”
He gave Trump praise for how he has been “pretty straightforward that he is at war with them. He is not going to soft-pedal that. He calls them evil. We haven’t had a situation like that.” Woolsey brought up how President Obama fought wars without making an effort to win.
Smith cut the CIA director off, claiming that Obama “fought a number of wars and certainly didn’t say that he didn’t want to win them.” He added, “Mr. Woolsey, with great respect, it’s very early to make this a political matter.” Woolsey rebuked Smith, saying that we need to look at Obama’s actions, not his hollow words. Said James, “It seems to me that’s pretty straightforward.” Are you glad James Woolsey shut Shep Smith down like this?
