Fox’s Shep Smith: Trump ‘Trades in Racism, Doesn’t He?’

shep smithRight after Hillary Clinton‘s big speech attacking Donald Trump and his links to the racist alt-right yesterday, Fox’s own Shep Smith didn’t exactly disagree with the premise about Trump exploiting racism.

He said that “the problem with any attempt to rebut her” was that “she used Donald Trump’s own words, what’s historically accurate on his policies on all reviewed points.”

Wall Street Journal investigative reporter James Grimaldi spoke with Smith in reaction to the speech. Grimaldi said it was “pretty extraordinary” and Trump’s history of questionable remarks is “more documented” than Clinton’s.

Grimaldi said that Trump “really trades in hyperbole.” Smith asked, “He trades in racism, doesn’t he?”

Watch how Grimaldi responded above, via Fox News.
