Fox News Host Tells Viewers They’re Going to Die From Hurricane Matthew (VIDEO)
Fox News host Shepard Smith is really concerned about Hurricane Matthew, so much so that he told his audience that it would kill them and their children.
During an October 6 broadcast, the 52-year-old anchor was describing how dire things would be if the storm made landfall in Florida — and he didn't hold anything back.
"This moves 20 miles to the west, and you and everyone you know are dead — all of you — because you can’t survive it. It’s not possible unless you’re very, very lucky," he said, before adding, "And your kids die, too."
But not everyone took the threat so seriously. Palm Beach Gardens resident Dolores Berhalter called in to let the anchor know she would not be evacuating her home because she's hopeful the storm won't be too bad, and Shep ripped into her, calling her "dumb" as he introduced her.
"They were hopeful in South Miami-Dade and Kendall and Homestead back when [Hurricane] Andrew [hit in 1992]," he said. "They were very, very hopeful ― until they were dead."
"Hope is not a strategy, Dolores!" he continued to tell the woman, who reportedly is a family friend of his. "Why didn’t you come up and visit us for the weekend?"
Hurricane Matthew is currently moving along the Florida coast, and has given Jacksonville its first hurricane warning in 17 years. So maybe Shep was onto something after all... but we hope not.
