Shepard Smith, who is too cowardly to tell anyone he's gay, speaking about the suicide of Robin Williams, seems to be bristling with rage that Williams took his own life. Completing blowing off the very real grip depression can have on people, he said one of the reasons Williams may have killed himself in “a fit of depression” is that he was “such a coward.”
He then gleefully transitions to Republican talking head Kennedy by saying Williams used to get high with her aunt. (Kennedy snickers at the revelation, then tries to contextualize it by dissing the '60s for its Haight-Ashbury “haze,” because the '60s were the worst decade ever for Republicans.)
All of which underscores the importance of not having right-wingers deliver your eulogy.
Smith's contempt for Robin Williams is appalling in this segment, and the timing of his comments is in extremely poor taste. What will it take for people to turn off FOX News for good?
