Shep Smith mocks Rudy Giuliani by giving Fox News viewers the definition of truth

Published

on

On Monday, analysts across the political spectrum tried to figure out what President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani meant when he said that “truth isn’t truth.”

Fox News host Shepard Smith turned to the dictionary for help. In a segment that aired Monday, Smith provided Fox News’ audience with the working definition of truth.

“Webster’s defines it as the body of real things, events and facts and the state of being the case. It’s truth. It’s noble. Often demonstrable. Sometimes elusive…. but truth is truth,” Smith determined.

Of course, in our current political moment that’s not always clear cut. Smith points out that “truth is truth” is destined to enter the pantheon of Trumpian attacks on reality, such as the president commanding his followers not to believe what they see and read and Kellyanne Conway’s “alternative facts.”

Giuliani later clarified that he hadn’t meant to start a philosophical discussion about the nature of truth but rather point out that different people might have different stories, creating a ‘he said, she said'” scenario.

“My statement was not meant as a pontification on moral theology but one referring to the situation where two people make precisely contradictory statements, the classic “he said, she said” puzzle,” Giuliani said. “Sometimes further inquiry can reveal the truth other times it doesn’t.”

More female Republicans will lose in 2020 as ‘misogynist’ Trump wages a ‘war on women’: Ex-GOP candidate

Published

President Donald Trump's actions will harm female Republicans at the ballot box in 2020, according to a former GOP counsel for the House Oversight Committee.

Sophia Nelson, who ran for Congress as a Republican, made her argument in The Daily Beast.

"Donald Trump has attacked so many women in so many ways for their looks, their age, or their position it can be hard to keep track," Nelson wrote. "But the president took his attacks on strong, accomplished and independent women even further in his attacks on his own U.S. ambassador, Marie Yovanovitch, telling Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that 'the former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news.' That was in the now infamous phone call that led to the impeachment hearings that began this week, and Friday, in the middle of Yovanovitch’s testimony there, he tweeted that 'everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad.'”
