It was back in the very early days of Fox News, during a time which I watched those on the network far more than I watch any of them now, that I would typically make sure that I was home in time to catch Shepard Smith’s nightly program. But it has been since then that Shep has, gradually over time, seemed to be move increasingly further to left to the point where, once he came out of the closet, he had come to more closely resemble any of the loons that we now see on MSNBC as well as CNN.
And apparently he has continued his slide into leftwing kookdom as evidenced by his very recent, and somewhat scathing, assessment of the results from the historic summit between President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Smith began his rant by saying, “The United States made concessions in exchange for no hard promises.” Adding, “Stopping joint military exercises with South Korea while North Korea makes a vague commitment to work together towards denuclearization.”
He went on to say, “The agreement the leaders signed are very short on specifics.” He continued, “The talk happened, hands shaken, photos taken, and during a private meeting, promises were apparently made.” He said, “But who wanted what? Well, America demanded complete verifiable and irreversible denuclearization. C.V.I.D. Complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization.” And he said, “There is no guarantee of that.” He complained, “Not even words to that effect!”
And Smith said, “And we may not know for years whether we’re actually now on that road, or left in the potholes of paths past.” He declared, “Kim Jong Un got it all!” He said, “But Kim Jong Un? He wanted the photos.” He continued saying, “The seat at the table. He wanted the legitimacy that came with the event. The handshake with America’s president. And he wanted those military exercises with the Americans and the South Koreans that happen every year to stop.”
“Kim Jong Un got it all,” Smith said, “for actually doing nothing.” And he said, “Plus he got a promise, lacking specifics, granted, of security for the North Korean regime,” he added. “A regime that has an estimated 120,000 political prisoners across the nation. A regime that tortures and murders its own citizens, imprisons children for the actions of parents and grandparents, and a leader who has committed crimes against humanity.” And he repeated, “No specifics!” By this time he was nearly apoplectic.
Smith criticized the promise of “denuclearization” from the North Koreans, saying there were no guarantees in the agreement. “No specifics of how to do it,” he said. “No timeline on getting it done. No verification. No inspection. No nothing else, just generalities.” Adding, “President Trump says he trusts Chairman Kim, and that he’s ready to start a new chapter with North Korea. What will the president’s special bond with Kim Jong Un mean for the U.S. and its allies? No specifics.”
Smith has what can only be described as being a rather severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS). He has now joined the ranks of those who will always find a negative side to anything that President Trump accomplishes. And yet, despite the media only reporting negatives and ignoring the positives, and a hateful bunch of congressmen aligned against him, the president continues to accomplish great things, which only serves to cause those like Smith to become even more unhinged.
And what is it, exactly, that Liberals and these NeverTrumpers seem to have in common? Pure Political Madness. First, they all screamed, ”Trumps hard rhetoric towards Kim Jon Un, calling him Rocket Man and saying our nuclear button works, etc…, is going to get us into a Nuclear War!!!!! Trump is losing against Kim Jon Un!!!!” Now they’re screaming, ”Trump is being too nice to Kim Jon Un, he ended the military drills!!!! Oh my God!!!! Trump is losing to Kim Jon Un!”
Besides suffering from this political Madness, those who are proud to call themselves Liberals also have some sort of mental disorder that causes them to believe, and they truly do believe, that you can identify as any sex, any race, any ethnicity, Hell, that you can even identify as a hippopotamus on any given day and be something else tomorrow, but by God, don’t wear a Chinese dress to the Prom or you are a racist and a cultural appropriationist. Can’t you Liberals see just how truly mental that is?
Smith is just one of the many reasons that I cut back on how much I watch FOX. I don’t know all the details of this deal and anyone who claims they do is a liar. If Smith said this deal needs time to come to fruition before we give Trump credit, I would agree, but he’s like the rest of the leftists, bash President Trump at all costs. If Trump cured cancer tomorrow, he and the rest of the left would first claim he didn’t do it. Then they would say well, maybe he did, but the cure takes too long.
Then they would simply claim it was actually Barry ‘O’ who had actually cured the deadly disease and that President Trump had had nothing whatsoever to do with it. Here is what I do know about this deal. President Trump led from the front not the rear. There were no plane load of cash used to buy his acceptance of the deal, but the left will never give credit where credit is due. What we’ve got to remember is that the Left does not want the same things that the rest of us do.
Those on the left have openly expressed their disgust at American values and their love of, and respect for, Socialism/Communism. They have openly wished for all kinds of hardships to befall the American public, so they can then blame it on their political opponents. Our State-controlled media no longer employs reporters, not even pundits who express their own opinions, but pure propagandists. I doubt if Smith, or any of them in the media have the spine to be real, bona fide, journalists.
