By now, pretty much everyone has heard about the disgusting, repulsive tweets Donald Trump made about MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski. It was Trump’s misogyny in one of its worst forms (if you aren’t counting the Access Hollywood tape or the numerous sexual assault lawsuits against him), and most of the country ripped him apart for it.
Unfortunately, many conservatives hardly wanted to give this air time – as expected. Many excused Trump’s remarks or barely acknowledged the fact that this proves how unfit Trump is to run the country and represent the voice of Americans. But luckily, some Republicans actually dared to grow a spine and condemn Trump’s remarks, choosing to stand up for what’s right instead of blindly sticking to party lines.
Yesterday, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith had a shocking reaction that pissed a lot of viewers off, as he launched into a brilliant, angry anti-Trump rant. Smith absolutely trashed the President of the United States for his “sexist cyber bullying” toward Brzezinski. Speaking with the courage that most Fox News hosts wouldn’t dare, he said:
First on the Fox News deck this Thursday afternoon, the president of the United States, Donald Trump, this morning, engaged in what critics are calling sexist cyber bullying in tweets at the MSNBC anchors and ‘Morning Joe’ co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough.”
What came after that was priceless. Calling Trump’s tweets “beneath the office of the presidency”, Smith practically swept the floor with Trump. You can watch his full rant below:
This attack on Trump was amazing, but Fox’s conservative viewership didn’t like it very much. Trump has not reacted to being trashed by his favorite network yet, but his voters more than picked up the slack. Almost instantly, Republicans were slamming Smith and Fox News:
Those reactions are disgusting, and exactly the reason an incompetent, horrible person like Trump was able to get into the White House. Smith did a brilliant job calling Trump out, and we can only hope that more conservatives can be just as brave.
