Joe Scarborough: ‘Good on Fox News for Putting Shep Smith Out There’ to Fact Check Trump

Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough praised the executives at Fox News or their decision to put Shep Smith on prime time to follow President Donald Trump’s Oval Office address last night to fact check details of Commander in Chief’s speech.

“To the Fox News News Division, right after this speech, they put on Shep Smith and Shep hit the president pretty hard with fact checking immediately following Trump’s approximately 10-minute speech,” Scarborough noted.

Scarborough continued to laud the work of the Fox Newsman, saying “Smith broke down a number of claims misleading and talked about how statistics showed there’s less crime by immigrant population than the general population and making the point government statistics show much of the heroin actually comes not over unguarded borders but through ports of call.”

Scarborough summed up by saying “good on Fox News for putting shep Smith out there and letting their viewers know what the truth was about the president’s claims.”
