Shepard Smith Fires Back at Angry Viewer: Trump is Running on Your Fear of a Migrant Invasion


The viewer’s name was Heidi. And she has not been enamored with Shepard Smith‘s coverage of the migrant caravan making its way to the U.S. Southern border.

Tuesday on Shepard Smith Reporting, the host read a complaint from his disenchanted viewer.

“Heidi Tweets just now, ‘Sorry, Shep,'” The anchor read. “We are not folling for your fake story. This is an invasion. This is not a caravan of poor migrants seeking a better life. Yes, there may be some of that there. But you’re full of it if you believe what you’re saying. POTUS has intel. You don’t.'”

Smith slammed his phone down on his anchor desk, and promptly beat back Heidi’s claim that President Donald Trump has intelligence on the caravan not readily available to others.

“No he doesn’t,” Smith said sternly. “POTUS has politics. He told us just the other day — so I can report to you with certainty — they’re running on [Brett] Kavanaugh and caravan. Your fear of an invasion of migrants. We just showed you their pictures.”
