Fox News’ Shepard Smith Relentlessly Fact Checks Donald Trump’s Border Wall Address!

So, the late show host wants to do something about it. Kimmel said he'll invite a federal employee to work at Jimmy Kimmel Live! every night until Trump's shutdown ends.

"The president made no news and no new proposals", he said. Second place went to CNN with 1,388,000.

"In preliminary numbers, the quarter hour (9-9:15 p.m. ET) containing the president's speech drew a combined 28.1 household rating in metered markets on ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, CNN, Fox News and NBC".

Those that disagree with Trump were eager to see the Democratic response, which was broadcast on networks shortly after Trump's speech wrapped up.

Immediately following Trump's approximately 10 minute speech, Smith broke down a "number of claims" that were deliberately misleading.

Trump's narrative about the southern border "really is fiction".

"Just because you say it's a crisis doesn't necessarily make it one", ABC White House correspondent Cecilia Vega said following the president's address. "Someone's got to fact-check that", Lockhart said.

Not even Fox News was having Donald Trump's lies about border security following his prime time address on Tuesday night.

The late-night funnyman also took aim at the official Democratic response from Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, which was widely mocked for their wooden delivery and freakish staging, with the pair squished together behind one podium. These recent television appearances have sparked debate about whether networks should air Trump's remarks in real-time.

After Trump speaks, congressional Democratic leaders, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (N.Y.), will be given time for their rebuttal, according to a CNN Tweet.

In the past, Trump's talks to the nation have been carefully scrutinized for false information. NBC, Fox, and Fox News had equal viewership.
