'Why is it lie after lie after lie?'

Fox News' Shep Smith tears into the Trump administration for its 'mind-boggling' deception

Fox News host Shep Smith's blistering rant about the Trump administration's "deception" left his fellow Fox News host Chris Wallace speechless Friday. Smith ran through the week's revelations, pointing to the meeting President Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., set up with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer during the presidential election and the report that Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, failed to initially note more than 100 foreign contacts on his disclosure form.

"We're still not clean on this, Chris," Smith said. "If there's nothing there — and that's what they tell us. They tell us there's nothing to this, that nothing came of it, there's a nothingburger, it wasn't even memorable, didn't write it down, didn't tell you about it, because it wasn't anything, so I didn't even remember it — with a Russian interpreter in the room at Trump Tower. If all of that, why all these lies? Why is it lie after lie after lie?"

Despite the "mind-boggling" deception, Smith contended that there are "still people out there that believe we're making it up." "One day they're going to realize we're not, and look around and go, 'Where are we and why are we getting told all these lies?'" Smith said.

"I don't know what to say," Wallace responded.
