On Thursday afternoon, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith incurred the wrath of angry Trump fans by accusing President Donald Trump of “sexist cyber bullying” toward MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski.
“First on the Fox News deck this Thursday afternoon,” Smith said, “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.”
Smith went on to quote critics who called the tweets “beneath the office of the presidency.”
Within minutes, Twitter trolls were flooding Fox News’ and Smith’s timelines:

@ShepNewsTeam Shep I don't give a dam what you think. Morning Joe is a jerk and America is ok that Trump thinks so too.
