Not everyone at Donald Trump’s favorite news network is gobbling up his latest piece of red meat.
Fox News anchor Shep Smith countered Trump once again Friday, this time aiming his measured, declaratory tone at the president’s outlandish claim that his predecessor was wiretapping him.
“Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind that the now president of the United States was surveilled at any time in any way,” anchor Shep Smith said during a Friday broadcast. “Full stop.”
Smith’s “full stop” comment, which was spread widely on social media, comes after analyst Andrew Napolitano claimed on Fox & Friends Tuesday that “three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command” and requested British intelligence officials spy on Trump.
But that wasn’t the case.
“Fox News cannot confirm Judge Napolitano’s commentary,” Smith said.
Looks like Smith’s continuing his journey to become the most viral fact checker on the network.
