Fox News fans are calling for host Shep Smith to be fired after his latest attack on President Donald Trump went way too far.
The Hill reported that on Monday, Smith poked fun at Trump’s feud with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, joking that the U.S. may need “a northern wall.” He focused on this nonsense instead of talking about the fact that Trump was preparing to make peace with North Korea in talks that resulted in a denuclearization agreement being signed today.
“The United States and Canada are in a fight, obviously,” Smith said. “President Trump accusing the country’s prime minister of making false statements, and the president’s trade adviser saying there’s ‘a special place in hell’ for the leader of Canada, our biggest trading partner in all of the world, our best friend from way back in World War II and every time in between. Canada. Maybe we need a northern wall.”
Smith was referring to the fact that Trump and his advisors slammed Trudeau over the weekend after the Canadian president said that all members of the Group of Seven industrialized nations reached an agreement at the conclusion of their summit in Quebec on Saturday. Trump blasted Trudeau in a tweet, saying the U.S. would not sign the G-7 communique, contradicting Trudeau’s announcement.
“Based on Justin’s false statements at his news conference, and the fact that Canada is charging massive Tariffs to our U.S. farmers, workers and companies, I have instructed our U.S. Reps not to endorse the Communique as we look at Tariffs on automobiles flooding the U.S. Market!” the president wrote.
Twitter users immediately fired back at Smith by demanding that Fox News finally fire him:
Shep, How dare you disrespect our sitting President of the United States. @POTUS I was raised in a military family and you respected the office even if you disagree with the person. I am so offended by your reports. Regards, Sandra L Glover a soldiers wife and Aviator.

FOX IS NO LONGER FAIR, BALANCED, and TRUTHFUL AS LONG AS ANTI-TRUMP BIASED UNPROFESSIONAL SHEP SMITH IS ALLOWED TO EMBARRASS THE NETWORK DURING 3-4 PM on WEEKDAYS.
WORTH NOTING THAT LOTS OF PHARMACEUTICAL CORPORATIONS SPONSOR SHEP SMITH.
Isn’t @POTUS questioning drug prices?

I don’t trust Shep Smith and never listen to him anymore. He belongs on CNN or MSNBC.
