President Trump went after left-leaning anti-Trump Fox anchor Shepard Smith saying “even fake news CNN is better”.
It’s no secret that Smith has been a strong anti-Trump anchor on the usually conservative Fox News channel. He snarks and editorializes to bash President Trump on his 3 p.m. show revealing a strong dislike for the president. Sarcasm is his weapon of choice that’s often used as an aside at the end of a report. He’s a whiny little man.
Trump called him out and then Shep responded on-air:

When Smith came back from a commercial break he said: “Good afternoon Mr. President. It’s nice to have you with us.”
Trump: "Watching Fake News CNN is better than watching Shepard Smith, the lowest rated show on @FoxNews."

Smith said to Rick Leventhal that some people aren’t too happy and he looked into the camera and said “that’s too bad”.
Who isn’t happy that President Trump called out Smith for his worse than CNN coverage of the president? It’s about time!
