Fresh off his own criticisms from the president, Fox News’ Shep Smith called out Donald Trump for his repeated attacks against the late John McCain.

Discussing the sharp rebuke from Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA), who said that Trump “deserves a whipping” in comments shared with The Bulwark, Smith noted that the president “renewed attacks against John McCain” by “attacking him in the grave.”

The host noted that during a Tuesday press conference with Brazil’s controversial far-right president Jair Bolsonaro, Trump said he was “never a fan of John McCain’s and never will be.”

Later in the hour, Smith responded live after Trump again trashed McCain during an Ohio rally, saying he gave McCain “the kind of funeral he wanted” and criticizing the beloved senator for voting against the appeal of the Affordable Care Act and handing over the “phony” Steele dossier to the FBI instead of the White House.

“You know, he brings it up sometimes on his own,” the host noted.

"The commission’s final report was set to go to Attorney General William Barr later this month, but Bates said no recommendations can be submitted until the panel remedies the legal violations," Politico reported.

‘I’m tired of it’: Furious Fox News’ John Roberts blows up on the White House after contentious press briefing

Published

on

Fox News' John Roberts was enraged after the White House press briefing on Thursday in which Kayleigh McEnany refused to denounce white supremacy or explain why the president refuses to do so.

During Tuesday's debate, Trump hammered former Vice President Joe Biden on denouncing violent protesters, which Biden did, saying that violence is not the answer and anyone who induces violence should be prosecuted. President Donald Trump, by contrast, refused to condemn white supremacists and militias who are trying to stir up more unrest to help Trump craft a narrative that Democrats are dangerous and create violence.
