Watch: Shep Smith Cuts McConnell Speech Midway To Fact-Check Him

On Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took to the floor to speak prior to Donald Trump’s address where he talked about the government shutdown and did nothing but blame Democrats for it.

But Fox News’ Shep Smith decided to cut the speech short after the Republican senator started spreading falsehoods about how the government shutdown came to be and why there still is a government shutdown.

After McConnell claimed he’s optimistic that a “negotiated solution” resulting in a border wall will emerge between Congressional Democrats and Republicans by the end of the night, Smith decided to cut the speech short and fact-check the senator.

“Democrats insist that proposal is not possible,” the host said.

“Now the president says he will keep the government shut down, he said for months or years if necessary, while waiting for the funding which the House of Representatives says it will not give,” he added. “So there’s the impasse. One side or the other must budge at some point.”

“At the moment the ones in charge of the purse strings are Democrats in the House of Representatives,” Smith concluded, “and they’re not giving him the money — at least not now.”
