Fox’s Shep Smith Rips Trump Remarks on Libel Laws: ‘A Word Salad of Nothingness’

After President Trump talked today about reviewing libel laws, Fox News’ Shep Smith went off on the President for his “word salad of nothingness”:

“For clarity, because we’re in the position to report facts here, all of that about libel laws––that was just a word salad of nothingness, because none of that means anything, except ‘look over here’. He couldn’t change the libel laws if he wanted to change the libel laws, he couldn’t change ’em if he got the Congress in there. These are state laws.”

He discussed the issue briefly with Wall Street Journal associate editor John Bussey before the President’s press conference today.

After the presser, however, Smith made it clear he wasn’t done with this subject.

“He’s not a dictator!” Smith said. “He’s not a king! He can’t change the libel laws. That’s preposterous!”
