FOX NEWS ANCHOR SHEP SMITH: 'The President Of The United States, Now In The 21st Century'

Shep Smith

Fox News anchor Shep Smith responded to President Barack Obama’s shift on same-sex marriage this afternoon with a characteristically dry zinger: 

“The President of the United States, now in the 21st century.”

Smith later asked if the GOP would continue to use same-sex marriage as a wedge campaign issues “while sitting firmly, without much question, on the wrong side of history on it.” 

It is not the first time Smith has expressed his unequivocal stance on same-sex marriage — he once told former Vice President Dick Cheney that his position on the issue was a “cop-out.” Still, the position likely puts him in the minority of Fox News viewers.
