The Only Truly Appropriate Reaction to Shep Smith’s Resignation

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Goodbye, Sheppie, we hardly knew ye.  –  Here is the only truly appropriate reaction to the news that the slimy Shep Smith has left Fox News:

In all seriousness, does anyone really care that our TV screens will no longer be graced by this shrill, overwrought hack? In recent years, Smith’s only role at Fox News was to come on air and cause half the cable channel’s regular viewers to tune into OANN. The channel attempted to elevate his role a few years ago by making him the “anchor” for all breaking news stories, but that seemed to last about 6 months before the role mysteriously disappeared.

The truth is that the clown has carried on an uninterrupted 5-year audition for a job at CNN or MSNBC, using Fox’s airwaves as his platform. Once his non-compete agreement with Fox has run its course – the time frame is not clear from published reports on the matter – we can expect him to come out with a highly-emotional book whose drama queen prose will resemble his frequent on-air rants, followed by the announcement of his new job “anchoring” some talking head show on one of those Democrat Party propaganda channels.

He’d fit right in with CNN’s prime-time lineup, joining Fredo, Cooper Anderson and that other guy in haranguing travelers across the nation’s airport lobbies with their leftwing nonsense. It’s his destiny, in fact.

Speaking of Fox News, the New York Post puts the lie to that ridiculous impeachment poll that cable channel spent the last several days pushing. That poll, conducted by Braun Research, claimed to have found that fully 51% of the public now favors “impeachment and removal” of President Donald Trump. But, as the Post points out, that’s mainly an artifact of an absurdly-biased polling sample:

Princeton, New Jersey, pollster Braun Research, which conducted the survey, noted 48% of its respondents were Democrats. But the actual breakdown of party-affiliation is 31% Democrat, 29% Republican and 38% independent, according to Gallup.

A poll weighted for party affiliation would have concluded that 44.9% favored impeachment and 44.4% opposed it, a Post analysis has concluded.

Oh. The more you know…

Thus, the President was correct about the Fox poll and Fox News in general when he responded to it on Twitter:


That is all.

    Maybe Schleppy has AIDS?

    Independents are mostly against impeachment; they[re independents because they don’t like political machinations, games, and this is nothing but a political machination. But what is there to impeach for, anyway? Mostly it’s because Al Green is right: they have no one; their bench is full but no one to take the field. Bunch of drums and clarinets, and the drums don’t even have drum sticks.

    I’d call Shep Smith “silly,” as well as “slimy,” because he’s really an overwrought silly girl, whose histrionics are only matched by John the-failed-analyst Brennan, who’d have been better suited to selling Electrolux to bored housewives. Smith reminds me of a con-man I once met, someone who used flattery and cajoling and wheedling and whining to get a position – kind of like James Spader’s role in “Wolf.” Slimy and silly. A con man with a slick delivery that most people won’t fall for. (Can’t wait until CNN is outed by O’Keefe! Coming soon!)

    My reaction…..”Who Cares?”

    I am happy to say the shrill voice of shep was never heard on my television. tv’s may be cheap now but replacing them all the time because of throwing things at the screen still gets expensive. so I don’t watch any cable news or network news segments now and haven’t for over 10 years.

    Bill Barr went to talk to Murdoch the other day and suddenly ol sheppy quits………how much you all want to bet when the IG report comes out this Friday we learn that he was being paid by the CIA to trash Trump on air?

    1. jtthedestroyer - October 14, 2019

      If Shep Smith was on the CIA payroll then Matt Drudge is also on the CIA payroll.

      1. Jimmy MacAfee - October 14, 2019

        I’d been thinking that for awhile.

    David, so glad I found you! Miss you on Twitter. I posted a message on Twitter to let your followers there know they could find you here & on FreeRepublic. I assume you got kicked off Twitter for telling the truth all the time! I’ll be reading you herr $ on FreeRepublic! Best wishes, Sharon Campbell

      hey, Sharon, good to hear from you. I actually deleted my account for a variety of reasons, mainly that I just got sick of the unending outrage mode over there. I’m much happier now. 🙂
