Fox News host Shepard Smith is plainly calling out Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for their startling response to the reports of a Saudi assassination squad traveling to Turkey to torture and kill journalist Jamal Khashoggi, an alleged gruesome murder that may have been directly ordered by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.
Shep Smith first lays out the reported information, information that Donald Trump is still denying despite having the best intelligence agencies in the world directly reporting to him. Smith’s must-watch commentary also takes aim at Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s disgraceful smiles and laughter while he met with the Saudi royal family and his absurd calls to wait for the Saudis to investigate themselves. Finally, Shep says it is time for the U.S. government and elected officials to stop looking the other way on Saudi Arabia’s atrocious human rights record, its’ funding of terror, and the somehow forgotten fact that 15 of the 19 hijackers on September 11, 2001, were Saudi citizens.

Contrast Shep Smith’s commentary with the morally bankrupt comments from Donald Trump today.

The security of the United States and the world is in peril every minute Donald Trump remains in the White House.
