When Fox News ridicules Trump, it’s a clear sign that the president sunk lower than usual. This week, Trump spent most of his time denouncing Michael Wolff over his new book, Fire and Fury, and attempting to divert the media’s attention to Hillary Clinton after news broke that Mueller wants to interview the president as part of his Russia probe.
In one of his assaults on Michael Wolff, Trump grumbled over America’s libel laws, which many critics viewed as an attack on the First Amendment.
Shep Smith commented, “He can look at the law,” before adding, “But when he looks at it, it won’t change, because he can’t change the laws.”
Smith continued, “For clarity, because we’re in the position to report facts here, all of that about libel laws––that was just a word salad of nothingness, because none of that means anything, except ‘look over here’. He couldn’t change the libel laws if he wanted to change the libel laws, he couldn’t change ’em if he got the Congress in there. These are state laws. And that was nothing.”
Smith then exclaimed, “He’s not a dictator! He’s not a king! He can’t change the libel laws. That’s preposterous!”
Guest John Bussey then reminded the president, “If you want to change the libel laws, you need to get Congress to change the First Amendment.”
