Fox News viewers lose it after ‘horrible monster’ Shep Smith gets emotional over photo of dead migrants

Published

on

Fox News host Shepard Smith castigated the Trump administration on Wednesday after a heartbreaking photo surfaced showing two dead migrants who had been trying to cross the U.S. southern border.

“This photo is deeply disturbing,” Smith warned viewers before showing the photo of a drowned father and his daughter on the banks of the Rio Grande.

“Of course, it is legal to present yourself for asylum in the United States,” the Fox News host continued. “Legal under American and legal under international law.”

According to Smith, current Trump administration policies “are forcing some who are desperate back home to take the chance at crossing the river.”

“The administration has separated children from their families and slowed the ability of migrants to apply for asylum,” he noted. “They could allow people seeking asylum to present themselves as they have forever in America.”

Fox News viewers scolded Smith over his show of emotion.

“[Smith] is a horrible monster,” one viewer wrote. “He spews misinformation to work his hateful agenda, he is a disgrace to mankind.”

Robert Reich walks through all the ways Trump is selling America to foreign powers for his own personal profit

Notorious class warrior Robert Reich wrote a sharp attack of President Donald Trump for his international policies that are doing nothing more than scoring him personal cash and power.

Writing for The Guardian, Reich called Trump "the most xenophobic and isolationist American president in modern history," saying that the president has been "selling America to foreign powers for his own personal benefit."

While Trump promised during the 2016 election that he would "bring troops home," it was likely assumed that Trump meant the decades-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The work on the ground in Syria was mostly being done by Kurdish allies and not American soldiers. The number of troops on the ground in Syria, prior to Turkey beginning their bombing campaign, was relatively low.
