Shep Smith jumped right out of his Fox News costume after the San Bernardino shooting Wednesday and into the role of human being who understands truth. While reporting on the incident, Smith read strong statements from the president condemning the violence and made it a point to mention that the fact that we’re the only civilized country where this happens almost daily:
[President Obama] got a lot of partisan pushback on that from his political opponents but the fact of the matter is, among developed nations, that’s the truth. These sorts of mass shooting with the regularity of where they occur in the United States — you don’t find that in other countries… you can extrapolate what you want. I can report to you with certainty that it happens more here than anywhere else in the world.
It’s about time for Shep Smith to tell Roger Ailes where to go and join team truth. Smith’s outspoken, often left-leaning rants can’t be going over well with the higher-ups, who know that the GOP base of fools hangs on the every word of whoever is currently behind the desk at Fox.
Watch Shep Smith agree with President Obama on gun violence.
