This week, liberal FOX News reporter Shep Smith made some on-air comments in which he was obviously blaming Trump for the actions of the mail bomber who was recently caught. Then something amazing happened. Shep got called out BIG TIME by Chris Wallace. It was an incredible moment.

Fox’s Shep Smith, Chris Wallace spar over Trump responsibility after mail bomb suspect charged
Smith began the segment by noting that all of the figures who had the pipe bombs mailed to them, including former President Obama and Trump’s 2016 Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton, have exchanged fierce criticism with Trump.
“You just can’t ignore the politics of this, even if you wanted to,” Smith said. “These are people the president has gone after rhetorically. These are people this guy targeted. It goes to the tone and tenor of the political discourse and the words that the president uses in his rallies.”…
Wallace pointed to the 2017 shooting at a congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Va., when a shooter targeted GOP lawmakers. The shooting left House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and three others wounded.
“I don’t think you can draw any particular link or any responsibility on the part of the president for this action,” Wallace argued. “I mean, as [White House press secretary] Sarah [Huckabee] Sanders said and just repeated by [Fox News White House correspondent] John Roberts, a Bernie Sanders supporter shot up the congressman at the baseball practice. Is Bernie Sanders responsible for that?”
