“Kill Him!” – Trump Supporters Threaten Fox News Host For Calling White House Press Conference “Crazy”
After calling Donald Trump’s press conference “crazy”, Fox News host Shepard Smith has received serious threats from angry supporters of the president.
In a comment segment on his Fox News program, Smith had slammed Trump’s angry rants against the press, saying “We are not fools”. Smith has been an occasional critic of the president, who has kept Fox News out of his attack on the media so far.
After Shepard’s comments went on the air, a barrage of attacks from Trump fans flooded social media, demanding his head at the network. Several commenters went as far as to threaten the journalist’s life, calling him a supporter of “fake news” and an “enemy of the people”.
This position echoes the tweet from the president himself, in which he singled out major press outlets such as CNN, ABC, NBC and the New York Times as enemies of the American people in a stunning assault on freedom of speech.
