Fox News host Shep Smith kicked his colleague Sean Hannity while he was down on Monday is he reported on “the elephant in the room,” which was the revelation that Hannity was the mystery third client of President Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen.
“For us, the elephant in the room is that Sean Hannity is said to have been a third client of Michael Cohen,” Smith said, according to Mediaite. He added, “A lot of people here know his number. We’ll get on that.”
“You may have heard a little while ago from court proceedings there were three people that Michael Cohen did legal work for,” Smith said. “The President of the United States, one other and the third. The third is said to be Sean Hannity. He’s on the air on the radio right now. We spoke with his publicist here at Fox News who says that he says they have been friends a long time. He never denied he was his lawyer. That he did some legal work for him along the way. And that’s the extent of that.”
Here’s how Shep Smith mentioned the Hannity news on Fox News at one point, calling him “the elephant in the room” and saying with a chuckle that “Hannity’s producers are working to contact him… A lot of people here know his number” before transitioning to a Russia story. pic.twitter.com/5j7lPseSuE

Smith clearly could not wait to report on this, as he has been feuding with Hannity publicly for quite some time. However, Fox News fans made it clear on Twitter that they much prefer Hannity to Smith:
@ShepNewsTeam Shephard Smith is so consumed with hate, he goes on air and makes himself look bad. Shephard Smith is a sick individual. @FoxNews People see it Shep, Hannity is amazing but your behavior is intentionally MALICIOUS and revengeful, get help Shep. Love @seanhannity https://t.co/LTLDX6K8N0

Shep Smith is probably giddy with his blatant anti-Christian bigotry as he unfairly and unbalanced reports about his colleague Hannity. https://t.co/l0ChQcNlZi
