Shep Smith On Trump's Iraq War Stance: 'He Said He Was For The War, Period'

Shepard Smith did not mince words when he addressed Trump's bogus defenses and said it would be "insanity and career suicide" to deny that Trump said he supported the Iraq war.

Fox News host Shepard Smith is not buying the Trump campaign's effort to try and deny that Donald told Howard Stern he supported the Iraq war.

And he didn't mince his words or feelings about it because when he spoke, you can see the anger pour out of his body.

In other words, Smith destroyed Trump's attempts at erasing "the history books."

On Thursday's show, Smith said, "I don't understand this notwithstanding the remarks to Howard Stern. He told Howard Stern he was in support of the war. That was very early in the campaign. And now he wants us to erase that from the history books and when we don't it's our fault for misrepresenting what is actually a fact. It's really difficult to wrap you head around what it is we're expected to do here, because I'm not doing that. That's insanity, and career suicide. He said he was far the war, period. That's it."

I'd like to see Kellyanne Conway try to lie with Shep Smith on this issue.
