Watch: Out Fox News Anchor Shep Smith Takes Down Trump After 'Crazy' Press Conference
Out Fox News anchor Shepard Smith had a strong reaction to President Donald Trump's solo press conference Thursday, calling the president's actions "crazy."
"It is crazy what we're watching every day. It's absolutely crazy," Smith said of Trump. "He keeps repeating ridiculous, throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia as if we're some kind of fools for asking the question.
"Really? Your opposition was hacked and the Russians were responsible for it, and your people were on the phone with Russia on the same day it was happening, and we're fools for asking the questions? No, sir," he went on to say. "We are not fools for asking this question, and we demand to know the answer to this question. You owe this to the American people.
"Your supporters will support you either way," Smith continued. "If your people were on the phone, what were they saying? We have a right to know. We absolutely do, and that you call us fake news and put us down like children for asking these questions on behalf of the American people is inconsequential. People deserve that answer, at very least."
