Trump Trashes Shep Smith, Sends Message To Rupert Murdoch About Fox’s Future

President Trump just dropped the hammer on Fox News Host Shep Smith. Smith and Trump have a long-running feud that seems destined to make the Murdoch boys choose sides.

Trump was rumored or it was suggested to him that he should start a television network. He does get ratings – he always could at some point or he could promote a different network like OANN to his supporters.

Like he did so today. Leaving one to wonder how long Rupert Murdoch will sit back and allow this to continue.

From The Washington Examiner: “Watching Fake News CNN is better than watching Shepard Smith, the lowest rated show on @FoxNews,” the president tweeted. “Actually, whenever possible, I turn to @OANN!”

Trump has recently been critical of the network and Smith has not been shy about pushing back.

Less than a week ago, the Fox News host ridiculed the president for doubting Russian interference.

Trump questioned if Russia was interfering in U.S. elections after a reporter asked him. In response, Smith said, “It’s one of the more baffling things of a baffling presidency. There is no doubt that they are interfering, and yet, he goes, ‘Do you believe that?’ Yes, I believe it.

I believe everyone in your government. I believe everyone is an intelligence apparatus. Of course I believe it.”

Then last month, the president was critical of the Fox News poll that suggested the president would lose to either Joe Biden or Sen. Bernie Sanders.

“.@FoxNews is at it again. So different from what they used to be during the 2016 Primaries, & before – Proud Warriors! Now new Fox Polls, which have always been terrible to me (they had me losing BIG to Crooked Hillary), have me down to Sleepy Joe. Even considering…..” Trump tweeted.
