  1. Firstly, who can believe snarky Shep Smith? He seethes with blue fire, one-sided comments and delirious joy when he assumes he has some crumb of evidence against Trump. I turn Shep off at 3:00 p each day. To me he is sickening as a Journalist.

    Too many are confusing the issue by seeing "Republican Party" as one unit; it has more correctly two to three classifications of groups. Some I do not call real Republicans but Fakes, i.e. John McCain and those of his cut.

    1. I agree. Shep Smith is a Trump hater, and he can't control himself to give unbiased reporting. I go do something while he is on, because I'm now a Shep Smith hater.

  2. Were they looking for a striped Republican and could not find any? We must read into the semantics of these charlatans. We cannot even trust the ones that were voted in to follow through on promised representation. They are truly disgusting!
